Nikon announced the release of a new objective for biological microscopes, the CFI90 20XC Glyc, designed for deep imaging of whole, cleared tissues such as the brains. Nikon’s new CFI90 20XC Glyc objective not only provides deep imaging capabilities at high resolutions, but its large field-of-view also improves throughput when imaging large tissue samples. A correction collar accommodates a wide range of refractive indices and a variety of immersion media and clearing agents. The NikonCFI90 20XC Glyc objective achieves a unique parfocal distance of 90 mm, resulting in both a large field-of-view and high numerical aperture.
This combination enables high-throughput imaging with exceptionally bright, high-resolution images. The NikonCFI90 20XC Glyc objective is compatible with a wide range of immersion media and tissue clearing agents. The correction collar accommodates a broad range of refractive indices (1.44-1.50) and corrects spherical aberrations caused by observation depth and temperature changes to provide bright, clear images throughout the entire specimen. Nikon CFI90 20XC Glyc objective for biological microscopes will be available from the end of November 2017.
