A short and simple explanation

A multi-channel potentiostat allows you to perform multiple experiments at the same time.

Do you want to perform several electrochemical measurements simultaneously? Then you need a multi-channel potentiostat. A multi-channel potentiostat allows you to perform multiple experiments at the same time.

What is a multi-channel potentiostat used for?

Multi-channel potentiostats are mostly used in electrochemistry in complex experimental situations where many experiments are running in parallel, to be able to draw a conclusion from a certain experiment or research.

  • For example, you may need to perform multiple measurements with a long duration, e.g. charge-discharge curves for batteries.
  • Also, you may be quantifying multiple analytes with different sensors in a sample solution, e.g. water quality monitoring.
  • Finally, you may want to be able to examine multiple samples simultaneously so that you can make rapid progress, e.g. organic coatings on metal alloys for corrosion protection.

Applications for the use of multichannel potentiostats include combinatorial testing, coating analysis, microbial fuel cells, continuous corrosion monitoring, electrode array monitoring, sensor arrays and large-scale supercapacitor for battery evaluation. Feel free to check our literature database for more examples.

Which multi-channel potentiostats does PalmSens provide?

PalmSens has developed two multi-channel potentiostats which both have a galvanostat mode and are capable of FRA/EIS: the MultiPalmSens4 and the MultiEmstat4.

Our multi-channel instruments can controlled by our own MultiTrace software or by your own custom developed software program.
