NAN
Open-Design Upright Microscope

The Sutter NAN — A focusing nosepiece microscope designed for electrophysiology. The microscope frame has been reimagined around our highly-stable adjustable MT-70 manipulator gantry stands; this design choice allows for many possible configurations to match the ever-expanding applications in the field of electrophysiology.

The NAN is manually height adjustable, with a range of 75mm, which allows a single microscope to be coarsely re-positioned in Z within a few moments to switch between slice work or in vivo. There are two overall height variants of NAN, determined by the nosepiece that is selected. The focusing nosepiece, with 25mm of motorized travel, can be configured with either a single objective nosepiece (Sutter made) or an Olympus 2-position swinging nosepiece. The height of the gantry stands is 15.25cm (6”) or 22.86cm (9”) for the single nosepiece or 2-position swinging nosepiece, respectively.

The epi level can be configured 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 LED. LED transmitted light illumination uses the Olympus Oblique Coherent Contrast (OCC) condenser, or IR-DIC components for the available contrast methods. The LED(s) are driven by the TLED controller and are capable of being triggered with a digital signal. This eliminates the need for shutters, and adding 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. When the microscope is shorter, there is more stability, increased ergonomics, and ease of use.


The NAN can be configured with trinocular eyepieces for visualization, or alternatively, with a tube lens and C-mount if only a camera is desired.

An important detail to consider with the NAN is whether to translate the microscope, or move the sample and manipulators together on a large platform stage, or finally, translate the microscope but mount the sample and manipulators on a fixed platform stage. For the XY motion, all combinations of manual and motorized motion are available with the NAN. Here are the three general configurations:

  • Manual or motorized translator with manipulators mounted on individual gantry stands
  • Manual or motorized translator with manipulators mounted on a large platform stage
  • Motorized XY platform stage with the microscope fixed to the tabletop

In order to complete the Electrophysiology “rig” we can also offer an abundant list of accessories, including the epi-fluorescence light source, manipulators, and Amplifier systems. The “Prices/Configuration” tab at the top of this page, will help you assemble a complete NAN rig that includes part numbers for a complete system. An example of the epi-fluorescence source is the FLED-DC which is a 2 channel LED system that is directly mounted to the epi-port of the microscope. If more than two fluorescent channels are required, then the Lambda 721 is a highly configurable LED light source with up to 7 channels. Sutter also offers equipment racks and air tables if you need those as well.
