  • Ergonomics:



Visualizes minute details within thick specimens with perfect clarity in patch-clamp experiments.
The Eclipse FN1, developed especially for electrophysiological research, features enhanced operability to facilitate patch-clamp experiments. Advantages offered by the FN1 include slim body, streamlined structure, improved electrode placement, long working distance, and greater noise reduction. A deeper area of the specimen can be observed clearly with infrared (IR) light.

Key Features
One lens covers from low to high magnifications
The high NA, long working distance 16x objective (NA 0.8, WD 3.0) allows observation at broad magnification range from 5.6x to 64x when combined with an optional variable magnification double port. This objective enables observation from a low magnification wide field of view (up to 2.0mm) to a high magnification high-resolution field without changing objectives.

Image deeper areas with ultimate clarity with IR-DIC
Axial chromatic aberration in the near-infrared region (up to 850nm) has been corrected in CFI Apochromat NIR 40X/60X W for clearly observing the minute structure of thick specimens. The CFI Plan 100XC W (NA 1.1, W.D. 2.5) is the world's first water dipping lens with depth-induced aberration correction. Because of its special correction ring, this lens can correct spherical aberration induced by imaging deep in tissue, or by working at physiological temperatures. Consequently, it is ideal for IR-DIC imaging, confocal applications, and multiphoton imaging. Alternating between visible and infrared wavelengths, as well as different illumination techniques (DIC to Oblique Light) is carried out simply by rotating the respective turrets.
