CFI Achromat Series for Apodized Phase Contrast

We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and following the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and federal, state and local health authorities. Learn more about the measures we have put in place.

 

CFI Apodized Achromat Series objective lenses for phase contrast microscopy.

Nikon specifically developed this microscope objective series for phase contrast observation by using its proprietary Apodization process to improve the objective's phase ring. Division activities taking place within a specimen - often obscured by unwanted halos - can now be observed more clearly.
