NAN Open-Design Upright Microscope

Sutter Instruments NANThe Sutter Instrument NAN™ is a focusing nosepiece microscope designed for patch clamp electrophysiology or material science. Highly stable, adjustable manipulator gantry stands take the place of the traditional microscope frame, enabling a multitude of manually height adjustable configurations. The epi level can be equipped with a single filter cube or a complete Olympus epi-illuminator. The transmitted light system is available with a single white light LED or dual white light and IR LEDs. Transmitted light illumination uses the Olympus Oblique Coherent Contrast (OCC) condenser, or IR-DIC components for the available contrast methods.

The LED(s) can be triggered with a digital signal. This eliminates the need for shutters and adds the ability to photostimulate from the trans location. In experiments where transmitted light is not desired, the LED, condenser focus mechanism and condensing optics are easily removed as a single assembly. Additionally, the transmitted light path is shorter than in other systems, allowing the microscope body to sit significantly lower than a conventional microscope. A shorter microscope translates to more stability, increased ergonomics, and ease of use.

The NAN microscope can be configured with trinocular eyepieces for visualization, or alternatively, with a tube lens and C-mount if only a camera is desired. To complete the electrophysiology “rig”, we also offer an abundant list of accessories, including alternate epi-fluorescence light sources, manipulators, and patch amplifier systems.
