NOTE: This product is no longer available. It has been superseded by the EA362 Dual Picostat.
The Picostat is a fully software-controlled high-sensitivity potentiostat suitable for use with two (working and counter), or three (working, auxiliary and reference) electrodes. The Picostat draws DC power from the e-corder unit and can be used inside Faraday cages. Ideal for use with microelectrodes (including carbon fibers for neurochemical experiments) and low current sensors.
