EmStat3

The EmStat3 is the smallest research grade potentiostat on the market. It is low cost and portable making it popular for educational purposes. It is available in two different potential/current ranges. The EmStat3 has an applied potential range of ±3.000V and a current range of ±20 mA. The EmStat3+ has an applied potential range of ±4.000V and a current range of ±100 mA. The EmStat3 and EmStat3+ are both available in a Blue version which has Bluetooth communication, battery power, an auxiliary port, and a screen printed electrode port. The Bluetooth communication enables wireless communication and can be controlled by a free Android app called PStouch. The EmStat3 is also available as a polypotentiostat with 4 working electrodes. If a potentiostat with multiple channels is needed, then the EmStat3 and EmStat3+ are both available as a 4, 8, or 12 channel instrument.
