Custom Microscope Objectives - Two Photon Microscope Objectives

Two-Photon Microscopy - Life Sciences - Quantum Research - Neuroscience

Special Optics offers objective lens solutions optimized for use in two-photon microscopy systems. These apochromatic objectives are customized with high numerical apertures and long working distances for use with various sample sizes and applications. Biomedical researchers use two-photon microscopy to image tissue and look deeper into samples to determine their nature and structure.

Special Optics' custom objectives meet the need for working distances from 0.3 mm to a longerrange of 30 mm. Lenses are also tailored to function at wavelengths from visible light (390-750 nm) to the near infrared (700-1400 nm). Depending on the type of studies being done, two-photon microscopy systems may also be modified for aqueous, oil, and vacuum research environments.

We design and construct countless specialty lenses for our customers everyday and would be happy to help you.
