The innovative coating technology enables bright, highly reliable image acquisition In today’s bioscience research, it is becoming increasingly important to visualize minute cell structures and reveal mechanisms and the interaction of intracellular materials through fluorescent and confocal observations. To achieve more reliable imaging results, demand for bright objectives that can detect even the weakest fluorescent light has increased. An objective is constructed with a number of lens elements to improve image quality and correct image distortion and aberration. However, due to surface...

Cutting-edge objectives with Nano Crystal Coat These top-grade objectives employ Nikon’s exclusive Nano Crystal Coat technology and provide high transmittance up to the near-infrared range. Chromatic aberrations are highly corrected over a wide wavelength range, from ultraviolet to near infrared. The immersion objectives are the perfect choice for live-cell imaging, thanks to their incomparable high numerical aperture. CFI Apochromat λ S Series These objectives provide chromatic aberration correction over a wide wavelength range from 405nm and are powerful enough for spectral imaging and...

CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda Series Nano Crystal Coat guarantees optimum brightness • Nano Crystal Coat enables remarkably high transmission up to the near-infrared region. • Chromatic aberrations are corrected throughout a wavelength range from visible to near infrared. Bright, high-contrast images are captured during long-wavelength imaging, which is less phototoxic to live-cells. • Unmatched chromatic aberration correction, resolution and image flatness ensure the capture of high-quality brightfield images. Vastly improved transmission rate (CFI Plan Apochromat λ60x oil) 1 CFI Plan...

CFI SR Series Objectives for super resolution microscope N-SIM The SR (super resolution) objectives have been designed to provide superb optical performance with Nikon’s superresolution microscopes. The adjustment and inspection of lenses using wavefront aberration measurement have been applied to yield optical performances with the lowest possible asymmetric aberration. Reduced asymmetric aberration enables the capture of fluorescence bead images with even brightness during defocusing. CFI HP Series Objectives for super resolution microscope N-STORM The CFI HP (High Power) objectives are...
