Scientifica IVM Mini Triple Motorised Micromanipulator

Scientifica IVM Mini Triple

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

Mount the IVM Mini Triple directly to your antivibration table or to a wide range of mounting frames.



A miniature version of the IVM Triple 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.


Electrically quiet for recording of extremely small signals without having to switch off the motors.

Control options

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