The 34 objective is rarely used in microbiology laboratories. Usually, specimens are first observed using the 310 objective. Once the specimen is in focus, the highpower or “high-dry” objective is then swung into position. This lens can be used to study algae, protozoa, and other large microorganisms. However, the oil-immersion objective (total magnification 5 31,000) must be used to study bacteria, because they are so tiny. To use the oilimmersion objective, a drop of immersion oil must first be placed between the specimen and the objective; the immersion oil reduces the scattering of light and ensures that the light will enter the oil-immersion lens.
