To add to my earlier diatribe: I do not want a slide dripping with
immersion oil to mess up my microscope. I expect you to mount the
smear in resin. Many histotechnologists are uncomfortable doing this,
so I often coverslip the slide myself. I'll use immersion oil on the
coverslipped slide if I need to - depending on the quality of my
high-dry lens and on my elderly eyes.
