The pocketSTAT2 is a complete electrochemical measurement instrument with the size of a smart phone. It has been specifically designed for (field) measurements such as corrosion evaluation and analytical chemistry, but suits any low current electrochemical application. The pocketSTAT2 is powered via USB and can be controlled from any Windows PC/tablet/laptop.

Main applications:

  • Field measurements
  • Corrosion
  • Coating testing
  • Biosensing
  • Analysis
  • Use in a glove box/fume hood
