Carl Zeiss Offers Tools and Consulting to choose the best Objectives for Microscopy
(Nanowerk News) Carl Zeiss, a leading provider of microscopy solutions for a variety of research, clinical and industrial applications, takes great pride in developing and marketing high performance objectives. Recent innovations have yielded objectives specially designed for Live Cell Imaging and 3-D Imaging techniques. Carl Zeiss will focus on its superior solutions for 3-D applications with the launch of its new theme, Carl Zeiss 3-D Science: Dynamic Diversity Discovery.
The company provides customers with microscopes and objectives that achieve the optical performance necessary to meet the demands of modern research, and the guidance to ensure the selection of the best available objective for the individual application. When selecting an objective, there are a number of criteria that must be considered. Important factors including magnification, numerical aperture, working distance, optical correction, temperature tolerance, transmission, geometry, available budget and others need to be considered in order to select an objective that will best fit the application at hand.
Serving as a partner, Carl Zeiss works closely with customers to define the relevant criteria for selecting an objective that meets virtually any need. What s more, a new brochure detailing the selection process and the broad range of objective classes from Carl Zeiss can make specifying the right objective an easy and efficient process.
This new guide provides valuable background information about imaging properties, correction approaches and specimen handling, and is available along with an online objective selection database at www.zeiss.com/objectives. The online database allows users to find recommended objectives based on defined search criteria, and contains detailed technical information ranging from contrast methods to transmission data on each objective.
As the premier solutions provider for a breadth of 3-D applications, Carl Zeiss enables users to achieve brilliant images at maximum resolution and with extremely high contrast. For over 150 years, the company has set standards in its class by developing industry leading objectives not only for 3-D imaging, but for all of the industry s toughest applications. Carl Zeiss is known for offering objectives that push the optical limits allowing researchers to answer questions that until now have remained unanswered.
