The Eclipse FN1 is a special purpose upright microscope developed to meet the rigorous
demands of electrophysiological research.
Never before has an electrophysiological microscope enabled visualization of minute
details deep within a specimen with such clarity and contrast. The FN1 has a completely
redesigned optical system that includes the world’s first water dipping objective with
depth-induced aberration correction.
Moreover, in combination with the new multiphoton confocal microscope system A1R MP+,
high sensitivity deep in-vivo confocal images can be acquired at high speed.

Variable magnification
double port
16x objective
New Objective Lenses Allow
Imaging of Deeper Areas with Ultimate Clarity
The true one-lens solution: LWD 16x objective
By using a variable magnification double port (optional), the 16x objective allows you
to capture images from a low magnification wide field at 5.6x to a high magnification
high resolution at 64x with the rear port CCD camera*1 with the same lens.
A wide viewfield of up to 2.0mm can be achieved at 0.35x intermediate magnification,
enabling the observation of whole specimens and easy electrode placement.
Variable magnification double port varies magnification between three levels
(0.35x/2x/4x or 0.35x/1x/4x).
*1Magnification of the front port is not variable.

64x (magnification 4x)
As the 16x objective has a wide 45º
manipulator approach angle and
3.0mm long working distance.
The world’s first water dipping objective
with depth-induced aberration
correction
The Plan 100xW objective (NA 1.1, W.D. 2.5mm) is
the world’s first water dipping lens with a correction ring.
This ring corrects spherical aberration induced by
imaging deep in tissue or by working at physiological
temperatures — providing outstanding Z-axis resolution in
IR-DIC imaging, as well as a tight point spread function for
confocal applications. With excellent IR transmission,
this lens is a terrific choice for Multi-Photon imaging.
New objective series —
ideal for IR-DIC imaging
Axial chromatic aberration in the visible to near-infrared region
(up to 850nm) has been corrected in CFI APO 40xW NIR
and 60xW NIR objectives. This enables the user to
observe/document minute structures of a thick specimen
with ample resolution. In addition, transmittance of
every objective is exceptionally high, even in the IR region,
thanks to wide-range spectrum anti-reflection coatings.

Easy insertion of microelectrode
The objectives boast a long W.D. of 2.5-3.5mm (2.5mm even at
60x or 100x), taking advantage of the 60mm parfocal distance of
the CFI60 optics. Since there is ample space above the specimen,
microelectrodes can be easily inserted. The diameters of the
objectives are 17% slimmer than previous lenses, and provide
broad approach angles up to 45º, facilitating dramatically
enhanced access of microelectrodes to the specimen.

Streamlined Electrophysiological Experiments
and Broad Work Space
Smoother objectives changeover
The FN1 comes with a 2-position sliding nosepiece.
A high magnification objective can be mounted on
either the front or back position.
Parfocal distance correction
and centering mechanism
The parfocal distance of both the front and rear objectives
can be finely tuned to achieve perfect parfocality.
The front objective has a centering mechanism,
which ensures perfect parcentricity, making it simple to
find your cell when switching to a higher magnification.
Parfocal distance correction knob
Front/back sliding objective changeover
The objectives can be raised by the lever to prevent
collision with the manipulator or the chamber when they
are being changed. The retraction distance is 15mm,
so even a thick glass dish is protected.
Objective up/down lever
Safe, accurate dipping operation
After the objective has been lowered, it can be further
lowered by approximately 1mm by depressing the lens up/
down lever to gently dip the lens top into the bath
solution. This eliminates the risk of specimen disturbance
due to the lowering of the objective deep into the solution.

Objective up/down lever
Simple wavelength/illumination
switchover
Alternating wavelength from visible to IR (infrared),
or illumination technique from DIC and Oblique Light is
carried out simply by rotating the wavelength selection
and illumination selection turrets. Oblique illumination
provides high contrast with deeper shadows by
providing incident illumination at shallow angles.
Observed under oblique illumination
Waterproof LWD condenser with
increased flexibility
Nikon has developed a new LWD condenser that can
easily be switched between brightfield, DIC, and Oblique
Light illumination techniques by simply rotating the turret.
The new condenser has a long working distance,
providing a wide space between it and the specimen.
In addition, the condenser surface is waterproof and
comes with a solution reservoir to catch spills.
The condenser can be easily removed — even if you are
using a fixed stage — and it can be cleaned without
causing vibration to the manipulator.

Illumination selection
turret
The user can choose
between DIC illumination
and oblique illumination.
The oblique illumination
direction can be freely
adjusted by rotating the
incident illumination
360º, making it easy to
identify the microelectrode
position.
Wavelength selection turret
The user can choose from IR-DIC, visible DIC
and brightfield. Deeper tissue penetration
into a specimen can be clearly visualized by
choosing infrared wavelengths between 850
and 950nm.
Streamlined operation
The focus knob and field diaphragm adjustment are
located on the front part of the base to enable efficient
focusing. Moreover, there are no cumbersome belts outside
the base. The coarse/fine focus knob is located on both
the left and right sides, so it can be operated with either
hand. In addition, the optional remote handle enables ON/
OFF and light intensity adjustment of the fiber illumination
from outside the cage.
The condenser and polarizer turret can be
simply and quickly removed.
I-shaped slimline body
creates more space above
and below the stage
The simple and slim
I-shaped body has no
projection on the body
other than the focus knob,
so there is more space in
the working area for
your experiment. This also
provides better access
around the microscope to
position manipulators and
other peripherals. With the
eye-point of the body 25mm
lower than conventional
models, you can work in
greater comfort.

Enhanced Noise Reduction and High Responsiveness
to a Broad Range of Experimental Needs
Minimizing electronic noise
Nikon has succeeded in significantly reducing electrical noise by utilizing fiber
illumination to bring light into the microscope from outside the cage. Noise can
be dramatically reduced by connecting ground pins to all main parts of the
microscope.
Ultimate vibration noise reduction
Nikon has achieved both improved rigidity and vibration resistance for the
FN1 body by undertaking critical measurement and simulation analysis of its
structure. Nikon has succeeded in suppressing the vibration generated
when the nosepiece or the magnification module is switched.
Compatible with large specimens
The FN1 enables the microscope height to be raised by 10mm to 40mm by
inserting up to four 10mm-thick spacers between the body and the arm.
This is particularly advantageous for applications that require the observation
of larger specimens such as intravital preps.

High-Resolution Confocal in-Vivo Imaging Systems
Multiphoton Confocal Microscope A1R MP+
With high speed multiphoton confocal imaging up to 420fps with the resonant
scanner, A1R MP+ visualizes dynamics deep within living organisms. Unmixing
of probes with overlapping spectra is also possible.
The high-sensitivity Non-Descanned Detector and CFI Apo 25xW MP objective
with superb transmission and aberration correction enable sharp, high-contrast
imaging.

Exclusive ITS-FN1 stage and mover
When Nikon and Narishige jointly developed the exclusive stage
for the FN1, they placed priority on ease of use. The operator
can easily sustain the stage in the horizontal position or switch
the position of each pair of double magnet pillars and screwed
pillars to suit individual experiments.With the microscope XY
mover, it is possible to easily and precisely move to the region of
interest by translating the whole microscope body in the X or Y
axis direction.
Manufactured by Narishige Co., Ltd.
MT-1000 stage and mover
The pillars of this fixed stage, on which the manipulator and
chamber are mounted, are designed as modular, making them
compact and easy to customize. They can be freely placed
around the mover, allowing effortless access to the microscope.
By translating the microscope’s optical system with the mover,
observation and image acquisition of multiple specimen points
are possible.
