EC-LAB  Electrochemistry

Historically, the first of our potentiostats was designed to study intercalated compounds with long experiment times due to slow diffusion coefficients. It was the, MacPile, multichannel instrument that worked in either galvanostatic mode or potentiostatic mode (each channel was devoted to one of either mode). Then the interest for multichannel potentiostats increased with battery testing, corrosion study, photovoltaic, material testing, fuel cell & biosensors development. So, new versatile electrochemical workstation have been developed to address all these applications.

Bio-Logic is proud to have the most complete offering on the market:

  • • Single potentiostat/galvanostat/ZRA such as SP-150, SP-200, SP-300 (also configurable as bipotentiostat).
  • • Multichannel potentiostat/galvanostat/ZRA such as VSP, VSP-300, VMP3 that offer up to 16 channel to measure 16 batteries or super-capacitor in parallel to increase the throughput of the research. Note a specific mode is available to carry out multielectrode measurement, especially relevant for corrosion or sensor investigations.
  • • Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is available as option for each instrument. It is managed by a built-in Frequency Response Analyzer (FRA).
  • • Current & Voltage boosters are also offered as option.


All the instruments are controlled by EC-Lab software. It includes all the standard electrochemical techniques such as CV, Amperometry, Potentiometry, Pulsed technique, Electrolysis, ZRA…
Advanced techniques are also available to carry out a Critical Pitting Temperature (CPT), RDE, RRDE, eQCM, spectroelectrochemical measurements, IMVS, or analog ramp.
EC-Lab is not only a monitoring software but it includes also analysis tools such as Z Fit (EIS data modeling), CV Fit (voltammetry fitting), Levich, Tafel Fit, Rp Fit.
In addition, accessories (Electrodes, electrochemical cell, RDE, QCM) that cover all the application are in the EC-Lab portfolio.
