Nano Crystal Coat guarantees optimum brightness in multi-color fluorescence live-cell imaging.
CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda Series Objectives for Biological Microscopes. Nikon’s exclusive ultra-low refractive index coating technology “Nano Crystal Coat” used in the manufacture of professional SLR camera lenses, is now incorporated into the new Plan Apochromat λ series objectives. This technology enables remarkably high transmission throughout a broad range of wavelengths, from UV to the near-IR region. Offering bright, sharp and high contrast images, these lenses are perfect for multi-color fluorescence live-cell imaging, particularly for fluorescent dyes with longer wavelengths that are less phototoxic to living specimens.
KEY FEATURESNano Crystal Coat, Nikon’s Superlative Coating Technology
With its origins in Nikon's semiconductor manufacturing technology, Nano Crystal Coat is an anti-reflective coating that assimilates ultra-fine crystallized particles the size of a nanometer.
High Transmission Rate Across a Broad Spectrum Range
By incorporating Nikon’s leading optical technologies and Nano Crystal Coat, the objectives have dramatically increased transmission rates throughout the entire visible range, from UV to near infrared.
Chromatic Aberration Correction to Near IR Range
Chromatic aberrations are corrected over a wide wavelength range, extending from 435nm to 850nm, so crystal clear images are captured during multi-wavelength imaging.
High Numerical Aperture for Bright Images
Unprecedented high resolution with a high NA (Numerical Aperture) can be achieved at any magnification.
Unobtrusive Lens Shape
Searching for and confirming the observation point is difficult with conventional objectives that have an obtuse lens top. There is always a risk that part of the lens could touch the specimen.
Superior Image Flatness
Image flatness is maintained across the entire field of view for all objectives from low to high magnifications because of Nikon’s outstanding optical design technology.
