The MultiTrace software controls the individual potentiostats of our multi channel instruments and the individual working electrodes of polypotentiostats. MultiTrace is based on the PSTrace program for the PalmSens and EmStat instruments.

MultiTrace can utilize the multi potentiostat in two different modes:

1. Simultaneous mode

All potentiostats run the same measurement. The measured curves are displayed in a single plot and stored in a single data file.

2. Individual mode

All potentiostats are used independently. Measurements can be started on all channels with one click, or on each channel individually. Each measured curve is shown in its own plot. Data files can be stored in separate locations for each channel.
MultiTrace offers to open every single channel in a PSTrace window.
A PSTrace window with full capabilities can be opened for each channel individually by double-click on the plot.

A script can be run on each channel separately as well. See tab Scripting in PSTrace for more information.

The polypotentiostat can only be operated in the simultaneously mode, but as an alternative an individual constant potential can be applied to selected working electrodes.


Minimum system requirements

  • Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10 (32-bit or 64-bit)
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)



In the Individual mode of MultiTrace you can create automated complex experiments for each seperate channel.
In the scripting window you can easily arrange your building blocks for automated saving, blank subtraction, peripheral control, peak data saving and many more to create your own method. Automatization of all your methods leads to more stable results and frees up user time for other tasks. Complex electrochemical procedures such as pseudo polarography can be simplified with higher functions such as deposition potential override.
