About us

PalmSens BV was founded in 2001 by Dr. Kees van Velzen, one of the driving forces in the field of potentiostat digitization in the late ’80s and ’90s. PalmSens BV was the first company to reduce a research-grade potentiostat to a size that fits in your pocket.

At PalmSens BV we are committed to making electrochemistry easier, more portable, and more accessible for novice and advanced researchers.
We provide a comprehensive range of instruments for most types of electrochemistry with an emphasis on mobility. We manufacture the world’s smallest commercially available potentiostat module with EIS capabilities: the EmStat Pico. While our unique flagship instrument, the PalmSens4, is one of the most versatile and compact frequency response analysis (FRA) / EIS capable device in the market.

Solutions for OEM

We have extensive experience as an OEM partner. The small EmStat Go potentiostat has been developed as a modular system. This way, we can modify the sensor insert(s), add other functionality, and make it fit your brand identity in weeks. Together with our software development tools, we can have your sensor application on the market in no time.
