ROCHESTER, New York, Sept. 4, 2015 — Suitable for use in industry and the life sciences, the MicroMate 3× zoom lens system from Navitar Inc. is designed to capture and process four times as much data when compared to a traditional optical system. The system images onto a four-thirds sensor and retains the same pixel resolution across the entire field. With a large field of view and fixed pupil position, the lens offers a fixed numerical aperture over the entire zoom range. It can be combined with any infinity-corrected microscope objective to achieve magnifications from 1× to 150×. The system’s pupil is located in a fixed position between the objective and zoom module. This allows for the use of a coaxial illumination source, as well as fluorescence, differential interference contrast and darkfield imaging. Applications include inspection of printed circuit boards, semiconductors and LED modules, as well as imaging of microfossils, digital pathology slides and live cell samples.
