Cell Culture Imaging
UCPLFLN20XPH Objective and IXplore

Save Time when Using Plastic-Bottomed Plates and Dishes 

Your experiment time is valuable, and every extra step in the process takes time away from your research goals. Designed for both fluorescence and phase imaging of tissue in plastic- bottomed dishes, the A Line UCPLFLN20XPH objective improves workflow. With its high numerical aperture (NA), images are bright and uniform across the objective's large field of view while the correction collar and long working distance optimize images through different cell culture vessels.


Improve Your Workflow

・Simplify the workflow for fluorescence observation
・Subcultures no longer required

Publication-Grade Images with Plastic-Bottomed Cell Culture Dishes

Bright fluorescence observation of histones in the nuclei (GFP–H2B) and phase contrast observation of nucleolus are possible with a high degree of detail.
