910 PSTAT mini – The ideal kit for electrochemistry training and education

For training and education purposes, we offer a dedicated package that includes everything you need to get started in the world of electrochemistry: the 910 PSTAT mini. It is easy and intuitive to operate, comes with all accessories that are required for operation, and can perform most fundamental electrochemical methods.

The 910 PSTAT mini uses disposable screen-printed thick-film electrodes, which makes electrode preparation and maintenance unnecessary. The sensors incorporate the working electrode (carbon, gold, or platinum), a silver reference electrode, and a carbon auxiliary electrode. You can use the disposable electrode as long as it provides accurate results. When the accuracy decreases, simply plug in a new sensor.

The training package is supplemented with the Metrohm monograph “Electrochemistry — A workbook for 910 PSTAT mini” (see below).

Portable potentiostat for electrochemistry with accessories in transport case

Monograph "Electrochemistry" – the training course in a pocketbook

Given the increased importance of electrochemistry in specialized fields, students have to be appropriately trained. Being small in size, affordable, and easy to use, portable potentiostats are a perfect tool for training and education purposes.

Therefore, the 910 PSTAT mini instrument comes with the Metrohm monograph "Electrochemistry – A workbook for 910 PSTAT mini". Ten experiments that are easy to reproduce are described in detail with parameters and reagent list as well as example results. These experiments describing fundamental phenomena of electrochemical analytics can be easily carried out with the 910 PSTAT mini and the electrodes supplied.
