See the evolution The Ni series, the ultimate in upright biological microscope evolution, supports bioscience studies with enhanced basic performance and flexible system expandability. The newly developed CFI Plan Apochromat λ (lambda) series objectives are the key to the series’ optical performance. Nano Crystal Coat, with its ultra low refractive index, is employed for the first time in microscope objectives, providing brighter, high-resolution and high-contrast microscopy images. Nikon’s proprietary stratum structure, used and highly acclaimed for inverted research microscopes, is now...

Eclipse Ni - 5

Simultaneous multichannel imaging (Ni-E/Ni-U) The Ni’s back port and the quadrocular tilting tube allow the user to acquire simultaneous, two-channel images on separate cameras. This feature is invaluable for applications such as FRET. Multiphoton microscopy in which long excitation wavelengths are used to allow less-invasive imaging of ever deeper areas of cells is gaining popularity. The design of the Ni-E model is optimized for multiphoton imaging in both optical and mechanical systems to meet the demands of today. ▌Objective dedicated to multiphoton imaging CFI75 Apochromat 25xW MP...
