Objective Lenses enable deep imaging of biological samples.

September 18, 2014

Intended for multiphoton excitation (MPE) and light sheet applications, XLPLN10XSVMP and XLSLPLN25XGMP support for range of refractive indices (RIs) and enable deep imaging of tissues treated with clearing agents as well as live-cell imaging and light sheet microscopy techniques. Dedicated objectives, which have 8 mm working distance and 400–1,600 nm transmittance range, also offer field number of 27.5 and correction collar. Latter allows compensation of refractive index mismatches. Read More

Compact Objective Assemblies simplify video microscopy.

April 28, 2014

Helping reduce imaging system weight and size while maintaining optical performance, TECHSPEC® Compact Objective Assemblies (2X, 5X and 10X) optimize each objective to allow for shorter tube lengths. Products are offered with standardized 30 mm ODs and C-mount threading to facilitate integration into system subassemblies, and magnification is user-configurable via addition of spacers. Each lens includes broadband anti-reflection coating to provide even light transmission in VIS spectrum. Read More

Scale Objective Lens supports brain research.

March 20, 2012

Using confocal laser scanning or multiphoton microscope, plan-apochromatic 20x/1.0 VIS-IR Objective Lens makes it possible to acquire 3D images of nerve cells down to depths of 5.6 mm in intact tissue. This permits visualization of branches of nerve cells and imaging of connections. Lens has been redesigned for clearing method known as Scale. Water-based reagent transforms sheath substance of nerve cells into transparent matrix without impairing signals from fluorescent marker and tracer substances. Read More
