Scientifica IVM Mini Single Motorised Micromanipulators

The HyperScope multiphoton imaging system now has advanced imaging capabilities; the introduction of an extended wavelength lens set means you can image deeper and through thin scattering layers in in vivo samples. Learn more here.

Scientifica IVM Mini Single

A single axis motorised manipulator developed for demanding in vivo applications, particularly where space is limited.

Compatible with a wide range of stereotaxic arms for microinjection, electrophysiology and viral injections among other applications.

Benefits

Compact

A miniature version of the IVM Single for studies where space is limited and less travel is required.

Ultra-stable design

Less than 1 µm drift over 2 hours for long-term experiments.

Super-smooth movement

20 nm resolution for absolute positioning.

Unique “creeper” function

Minimise tissue damage when penetrating deep into your sample by enabling your probe to "creep" to a desired position at a speed of your choice using the LinLab software

Silent

Operate via our ergonomically designed remote control options or through our specially designed LinLab software.
