WETZLAR, Germany, Nov. 24, 2009 – The Leica Microsystems HCX APO L20×/0.95 IMM is a dedicated BABB (Benzyl Alcohol Benzyl Benzoate, 1:2) objective lens for neuroscience and developmental biology applications. Designed for use in confocal microscopy, it provides deep imaging.

Leica_BABB-ObjectiveLens.jpgThe objective lens is designed and optimized to serve high-level biomedical research such as the analysis of whole animals, brain slices and similar neuronal preparations with the immersion medium BABB The apochromatic corrected objective provides the standard 20× magnification for overview with a numerical aperture of 0.95. The numerical aperture allows structures as small as 250 nm to be acquired within an object field of more than half a millimeter. In combination with a confocal scanning microscope, the magnification can be continuously increased up to 1200 times.

It is suitable for use in morphological studies in developmental biology, neurology and neurobiology for the investigation of neurons, their connection to each other and to the whole brain set pattern.

The optical performance of the objective lens combines with the company’s DM6000 CFS confocal fixed stage system, which is based on the proprietary broadband confocal and multiphoton TCS SP5 II microscope. The perfect match of Leica confocal components provides deep insights at high resolution and a fast overview of the entire sample to find areas of interest.

A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
