Description

EmStat is a small and low cost potentiostat with research grade capabilities. It has eight current ranges from 1 nA to 100 mA (EmStat3+) full scale, with a minimum resolution of 1 pA. It provides the most relevant electroanalytical measurement techniques. Its price makes it a popular choice for educational purposes.

Standard included with an EmStat3/3+:

  • Rugged carrying case
  • High quality, double shielded cell cable with
    2 mm banana connectors for Working, Counter, Reference, Sense (EmStat3+) and Ground
  • Crocodile clips
  • Dummy cell
  • USB cable
  • PSTrace software for Windows

Techniques

The following techniques are supported by EmStat3/3+.

Voltammetric techniques:

  • Linear sweep voltammetry (LSV)
  • Differential pulse voltammetry (DPV)
  • Square wave voltammetry (SWV)
  • Normal pulse voltammetry (NPV)
  • Cyclic voltammetry (CV)

These methods can all be used in their stripping modes which are applied for (ultra-) trace analysis.

Techniques as a function of time:

  • Chronoamperometry (CA)
  • Pulsed amperometric detection (PAD)
  • Multiple pulse amperometry (MPAD)
  • Open circuit potentiometry (OCP)
  • Multistep amperometry (MA)
