You can find here some examples of applications for our electrodes and potentiostats. The application notes and the corresponding method files can be downloaded on this page.
synchronized measurements with the MultiPalmSens4
This application note describes how to use the MultiPalmSens4 as a polypotentiostat, i.e. multiple working electrodes share one reference and one counter electrode in one cell.
Vitamin C Detection with ItalSens IS-C
This application note describes how to create a calibration for quantitative measurements of vitamin C. Due to the detailed description and harmless solutions this an excellent electrochemical experiment with liquids for beginners in the field of electrochemistry.
Impact of Noise on DPV and SWV
In this application note the influence of noise on a measurement using a differential pulse technique is demonstrated.
Sensit Smart: How to Connect Cables
In this application note it is described how to connect your electrodes via cables to the Sensit Smart utilizing the included screw terminal adaptor.
Sensit Smart: Glucose Calibration Curve

Galvanic Isolation in Applications
A frequently asked question is “Do I need the Galvanic Isolation option?”. In this application note the term galvanic isolation is explained as well as the different options for our devices. Furthermore, common applications for galvanic isolation are presented.
OCP with MUX8-R2
The multiplexer MUX8-R2 offers the possibility to record reliable Open Circuit Potential (OCP) measurements in the Alternating mode, which allows to monitor the OCP of multiple samples / working electrodes over time with a single potentiostat. This is a significant improvement compared to its predecessors MUX8 and MUX16.
In this application note it is demonstrated how to setup and perform an OCP measurement with the MUX8-R2 in the Alternating mode.
Measuring Naphthol with carbon electrodes (IS-1)
The screen printed carbon electrodes by ItalSens IS-1 have been characterized by measuring naphthol, but can also be used for quantification of naphthol.
Mercury Analysis using ItalSens gold electrodes (IS-Au)
Mercury is poisonous and present in many other metal resources. Due to mining activities it also present in ground water, rivers, lakes and oceans. Gold surfaces form alloys with mercury thus allowing stripping voltammetry.
Heavy Metal Detection in River Water using ItalSens heavy metal electrodes (IS-HM)
Heavy metals poison every year still thousands of people. Observing the quality of our drinking and food is an important application for electrochemical sensors.
