The MicroMate 3× zoom lens system from Navitar Inc. is designed to capture and process four times as much data 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 an infinity-corrected microscope objective to achieve magnifications from 1× to 150×. Applications include the imaging of microfossils, digital pathology slides and live cell samples.
