Nano Crystal Coat guarantees optimum brightness.

Nikon's exclusive ultra-low refractive index coating technology "Nano Crystal Coat," used in the manufacture of professional SLR camera lenses, is now employed in the new CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda objective series. This technology enables remarkably high transmission throughout a broad range of wavelengths, from UV to the near-IR region. Offering bright, sharp, high-contrast images, these objectives are perfect for multi-color fluorescence live-cell imaging, particularly for fluorescent dyes with longer wavelengths that are less phototoxic to living specimens. Moreover, with the world's highest level of chromatic aberration correction, resolution and image flatness, the capture of high-quality brightfield images is ensured.   Capable of visualizing the minute structures and dynamics of living cells or organisms, the CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda series supports bioscience research in its quest to reveal the mechanisms of life.
