CFI60 Water Dipping Series

A wide range of objectives which are ideal for IR-DIC imaging, including the world’s first water dipping lens with depth-induced aberration correction.

The Water Dipping Series of objective lenses provide long W.D and high N. A.s at any magnification. Combined with sharper tips and broad approach angles, these objectives provide improved accessibility and control for manipulators. Aberrations are corrected even in the infra-red range with the high magnification objectives, making them ideally suited to multi photon imaging applications using infra-red light. The 100XC W objective comes with a correction ring to compensate for spherical aberration induced by imaging depth or temperature fluctuations. With its excellent infra-red transmission, this lens assures the best quality images of even a thick specimen.
