Scientifica IVM Mini Triple

Remotely position multiple probes in your in vivo sample to acquire best quality data.

This multi axis, ultra-smooth, stereotaxic micromanipulator enables you to precisely position a greater number of probes in your sample. Designed for all multielectrode recording systems (such as Neuropixels probes), in vivo patch clamp electrophysiology, and microinjection.

The IVM Mini Triple enables you to carry out long, reliable experiments. It is simple to add to existing set-ups where you require healthy samples and greater control.

Product benefits

Total remote control

Each axis is controlled remotely, with a readout display, giving best possible positioning for accurate and confident sample targeting.

Investigate deep within your sample

The 20mm range of travel means you have ultimate freedom to position anywhere within your sample.

More data

Acquire more data points by mounting a greater number of these compact micromanipulators around your sample.

Maximises tissue health

Ensure healthy tissue by smoothly inserting the probe. The unique 'creeper' function enables you to precisely control the speed and position of your probe - reducing tissue damage and improving data.

Compatible with most multielectrode headstages

The IVM Mini Triple is suitable for all major multielectrode headstages – including Neuropixels and Atlas.

Maximise sample comfort and attention

The extremely low audible noise and hands-free control of the IVM Mini Triple, when in motion or at rest, means your sensitive sample will not be disturbed by audible sounds.

Compatible with most stereotaxic frames

This micromanipulator is compatible with many stereotaxic frames, giving you flexibility with your choice of experimental setup.

Great resolution

The IVM Mini Triple has 20 nm resolution for absolute positioning. View the exact position of your probe using dedicated software and/or the Patch Pad display.

Confidently record from the exact area of interest

Utilise the positional readout in all axis, using the software or PatchPad Display, to position your probe exactly where you want it to be within the tissue.

Acquire reliable data for the full duration of your experiments

The high stability of the design ensures you can maintain position in the brain or other tissue for reliable, long-term experiments.

Record even the smallest electrophysiological signals

The low-noise electronics and grounding allows smaller signals to be detected and provides cleaner data.

Focus on your sample’s welfare

The hands-free movement and motorised control allow you to concentrate on the welfare of your sample during probe positioning.

Advanced control options

Operate the micromanipulator using our ergonomically designed configurable control options or through our specially designed and customisable LinLab software.

The creeper function in LinLab allows the movement of the manipulator to be programmed over a set distance at a pre-defined speed. This allows for smooth motion to the correct area of interest.

Alternatively, the step function can be used for faster, yet measured step movement to insert the electrode into the cell.

Position co-ordinates can be viewed, stored, exported and recalled in LinLab, or users can couple the system with our PatchPad Display Controller, so X, Y and Z co-ordinates can be viewed in real time right by the sample. An ideal set up for customers doing auditory research who wish to avoid using a workstation near to their sample.
