Available Olympus objectives

Below is a list of objectives available for the Olympus microscopes and these can be exchanged between the systems. However, the software has to be updated when objectives are changed so contact Hana Sehadova in advance if you need an objective that is not installed on the microscope system you want to use.

Grade Descripiton
A High-performance universal plan wide-range apochromatic-corrected objectives, corrected for four colors chromatically and spherically, with unsurpassed numerical aperture values deliver the best resolution, contrast and field flatness for any microscope technique. In combination with the lowest autofluorescence of all objective series, they are the best choice for advanced fluorescence applications.
B Semi-apochromatic long working distance objectives, designed for tissue culture observations in flasks and dishes. Excellent contrast and resolution in bright field, phase contrast, DIC and fluorescence observations. Corrected for spherical and chromatic aberration at two wavelengths (green and red).
C Semi-apochromatic universal objectives that deliver superb resolution, contrast and image flatness with any microscopic technique. Corrected for spherical and chromatic aberration at two wavelengths (green and red).
F High transmission in the near-UV wavelength (340 nm) makes these objectives perfect for applications such as ratio imaging or measurement of intracellular pH with UV-excitable fluorochromes.
G TIRF objectives have the high numeric aperture.
