Optical imaging with a high detecting power is very instrumental to dynamic observations of bio-molecular objects in water. To pioneer this field of imaging researches further, we used novel objective lenses of 1.65 and 1.45 in NA comparatively with 1.35 NA lens. The lenses of ultra high NA have a high resolving power and very useful properties for observation of high contrast images of fluorescently labeled molecules and subcellular organelles including DNA and membrane fusion proteins.
