No Compromise in Confocal Image Quality

The 60X X Line oil immersion objective's improved numerical aperture, image flatness, and chromatic aberration correction deliver outstanding images and reliable data in a wide wavelength range (400–1000 nm).

Superior Image Quality at 405 nm Excitation

X Line objectives provide uniform, high-quality images at the 405 nm excitation wavelength over a full field of view (FN18) for precise quantitative analysis, such as counting cell nuclei stained by DAPI.

Multicolor Panoramic Image

Improved image flatness enables you to acquire superior stitched images with less zooming and in a wide wavelength range starting at 400 nm.

Exceptional Color Accuracy

With chromatic aberration correction from 400 to 1000 nm, X Line objectives deliver accurate multicolor images and quantitative results during colocalization analysis.
