Nikon announces a new silicone immersion objective lens for super-resolution and multi-modal imaging
Nikon today announced the release of a new silicone immersion objective lens, CFI SR HP Plan Apochromat Lambda S 100XC Sil, for super-resolution and multi-modal imaging. Nikon's new silicone immersion objective lens combines high numerical aperture and working distance to enable super-resolution imaging of thick samples as well as correlative imaging with applications such as confocal. Super-resolution imaging techniques are becoming widely used to extract molecular-level spatial information. Nikon's new CFI SR HP Plan Apochromat Lambda S 100XC Sil objective and silicone immersion medium provide high resolution, long working distance imaging capability to support these needs.

The Nikon CFI SR HP Plan Apochromat Lambda S 100XC Sil objective is designed for use with Nikon's new silicone oil (ne≒1.40), to provide high resolution imaging of thick samples. Nikon's silicone oil closely matches the refractive index of the specimen (ne≒1.38) to reduce spherical aberration when imaging through thick samples, resulting in bright and clear images. Nikon's highly acclaimed, proprietary, anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat is utilized to achieve high transmission from UV to near IR wavelengths. Nikon CFI SR HP Plan Apochromat Lambda S 100XC Sil will be presented at 17th International European Light Microscopy Initiative Meeting (May 23-26 at Dubrovnik, Croatia).
