Super-Resolution Series

Objective lenses designed to provide the highest quality point spread functions for super-resolution imaging.

SR objectives

Aligned and inspected using wavefront aberration measurement technologies to ensure the lowest possible asymmetric aberration and superior optical performance required for super-resolution imaging.

HP objectives

Compatible with the ultrahigh power lasers required to induce rapid photoswitching of fluorophores under N-STORM imaging. They provide improved axial chromatic aberration correction to achieve the highest level of precision in localization and image alignment for 3D multi-color STORM imaging.

Silicone immersion objectives

The CFI SR HP Plan Apochromat Lambda S 100XC Sil uses high viscosity silicone oil with a refractive index close to that of live cells as the immersion medium. Because of this improved refractive index compatibility, these objectives can provide improved photon collection capability and resolution when performing super-resolution imaging deep inside a specimen. They provide superior chromatic aberration correction and high transmittance over a broad range of wavelengths.

Dry objectives

The N-SIM S/N-SIM E is compatible with the CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda 60XC and CFI Plan Apochromat Lambda 40XC. These low-magnification, wide field-of-view dry objectives enable both super-resolution imaging and confocal imaging without switching lenses.

AC type models

The CFI SR HP Apochromat TIRF 100XAC Oil and CFI SR Plan Apochromat IR 60XAC WI are compatible with the Auto Correction Collar of the Ti2-E inverted microscope, which enables highly precise and easy adjustment of the correction collar.
