apochromat

(ˌæpəˈkrəʊmæt) or

apochromatic lens

n
(General Physics) a lens, consisting of three or more elements of different types of glass, that is designed to bring light of three colours to the same focal point, thus reducing its chromatic aberration. Compare achromat

I've had a ball with my own recently purchased apochromat after using almost nothing but Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes for many years.
All images were equipped with 63 x 1.4 NA plan apochromat oil immersion objectives (Carl Zeiss Vision, Munchen-Hallbergmoos, Germany) and standard DAPI (4;,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole) optics that adsorb violet radiation (max 372 nm) and emit blue fluorescence (max 456 nm).
Pictures of live HEK293 cells stably expressing [[beta].sub.2]AR-GFP were taken with an Axiovert[R] 200 M (Zeiss, Jena) fluorescence microscope equipped with argon laser, beam splitter HFT 488/543, oil immersion objective (Plan Apochromat 63x/1.4), bandpass filter BP 505-530, and pinhole 96 mm was used.
In both study protocols, WSIs were created using a Mirax MIDI scanner (Zeiss, Oberkochen, Germany, currently sold as Pannoramic MIDI, PerkinElmer, Waltham, Massachusetts, produced by 3DHISTECH, Budapest, Hungary), which uses a X20 Zeiss 0.8 numerical aperture plan apochromat objective, yielding images with 0.32 im/pixel.
There is a specially designed Apochromat objective lens with high numerical aperture (0.11) and low distortion that provides crisp, clear images.
