Description

EmStat Blue is a small and low cost potentiostat with research grade capabilities. It has eight current ranges from 1 nA to 100 mA (EmStat3+ Blue) full scale, with a minimum resolution of 1 pA. It provides the most relevant electroanalytical measurement techniques and is used with the PSTrace software or with PStouch for Android.

Standard included with an EmStat Blue:

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

Optional:

  • Samsung tablet for use with PStouch
