Olympus Plan Achromatic Objectives provide field flatness up to F.N.22
Olympus Plan Achromatic Objectives provide precise field flatness of up to F.N.22 in brightfield, darkfield or fluorescence microscopy. Available in 4X, 10X, 20X, 40X and 100X objectives, they are designed for clinical laboratory or examination applications.
Olympus Plan Fluorite Objectives use advanced multi-coatings
Multi-purpose Olympus Plan Fluorite Objectives use advanced multi-coatings to provide excellent flat field images from the UV to the NIR. These versatile objectives provide high signal-to-noise ratios, superior resolution and high contrast imaging capability. Available with high NA and oil immersion options in several sizes from 4X to 100X, Olympus Plan Fluorite Objectives are ideally suited for brightfield, darkfield, differential interference contrast (DIC), fluorescence or polarization microscopy.
Olympus Long and Super Long Working Distance M-Plan Fluorite Objectives reduce specimen damage
Olympus Long and Super Long Working Distance M-Plan Fluorite Objectives offer long working distances to increase specimen safety while providing increased contrast for observation. These two objective families feature over 90% transmission from 400-700 nm. Olympus Long Working Distance M-Plan Fluorite Objectives feature standard pupil positions, allowing multiple prisms or polarizers to be used for DIC microscopy, as well as brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence and polarization microcsopy. Olympus Super Long Working Distance M-Plan Achromatic Objectives are designed for brightfield microscopy. All of these infinity-corrected objectives and are in-stock and available for immediate delivery.
