The Olympus XLSLPLN25XSVMP SCALEVIEW 25x objective lens has an 8 mm working distance, enabling the deep imaging of tissues, without the need for potentially damaging micro-dissections.
The objective has been optimized for use with the SCALEVIEW-A2 clearing reagent, which essentially clears bodily tissues of their opacity to provide a clearly defined image. By making the tissue transparent, while simultaneously minimizing light scattering, images can be obtained from 8 mm below the surface of the sample. Optimized for use with the Olympus FluoView FV1000MPE multiphoton microscope, users can obtain a complete system which avoids the occurrence of artefacts due to slicing, thus enabling you to be confident in the biological relevance of your findings.
