How to Size Your Objective

(A) = The diameter of the spring loaded retractable portion of the objective. This is the diameter that the heater band must fit.
(B) = The minimum vertical surface needed to mount the Objective Heater and transfer heat.

Bioptechs Objective Heater Band Sizes

Standard Medium Large
(A) 17-28 mm (A) 21-30 mm (A) 30-38mm
(B) 5.5 mm (B) 5.5 mm (B) 3.5 mm

Note: The above diagram depicts a typical Objective Heater mounting location. There are a wide variety of objective configurations. It may be necessary to mount an Objective Heater at a different location than indicated above. Some objectives require the removal of a decorative collar (below, top). If removal of the decorative collar is required, an objective wrench and pliers (below, bottom) are available.

 

Information and color explanations on Objectives from Zeiss

Label Example

# Explanation Color / Explanation
(1) The lettering color characterizes the objective type and the contrast method intended for the objective. Black: Standard (plus DIC in some types)
Red: Low-strain for polarization / DIC
Green: Phase 1, 2, 3
(2) Magnification / numerical aperture  
(3) Tube length / cover glass thickness. Tube length "infinite" marks ICS optics  
(4) Magnification color coding —— Black: 1,25x
—— Brown: 2,5x
—— Red: 4x, 5x
—— Orange: 6,3x
—— Yellow: 10x
—— Green: 16x, 20x, 25x, 32
—— Light Blue: 40x, 50x
—— Dark Blue: 63x
—— White: 100x, 150x
(5) Function element (knurled collar)

•  For optical correction with various immersion media or differing cover glass / vessel bottom thicknesses or
•  On objectives with variable aperture iris
 
(6) Color coding for the immersion liquid to be used —— Black: oil
—— White: water
—— Orange: glycerol
—— Red: variable
