im·mer·sion

(i-mer'zhŭn),
1. The placing of a body under water or other liquid.
2. microscopy filling the space between the objective lens and the top of the cover glass with a fluid, such as water or oil, to reduce spheric aberration and increase effective numeric aperture by elimination of refractive effects that result from an air-glass interface; the best resolution is achieved when the space between the condenser lens and the specimen slide is also filled with the fluid.

The results of this study support clinical laboratories' continued use of the fairly widespread and accepted method of performing platelet count estimates from Wright's stained peripheral blood smears by counting the number of platelets in ten oil immersion fields, determining the average number per field, and multiplying the average number by 20,000 to produce an estimate per microliter.
