You’ve Got Choices

Pine Research offers a variety of potentiostat and bipotentiostat systems suitable for use in research, instructional and industrial laboratories. Designed and build by a talented staff of engineers, chemists, and technicians, Pine Research has over 30 years of experience building potentiostats. With a classic understanding of analog electronics meshed with a modern take on digital conversion, we strive to design a system that is built with quality, free of gimmicks or undisclosed filtering, and supported with our highly-attentive customer and technical support. Potentiostat form factors include standard benchtop models and portable units small enough to easily fit into a laptop bag, a coat pocket, or the ante-chamber of a glove box.



These benchtop instruments are the more advanced products of the Pine potentiostat line. The WaveDriver potetionstats feature a USB interface, a fully functional potentionstat/galvanostat, and is controlled through AfterMath instrument control and data analysis software. This is one of the most feature-packed potentiostats available on the market for under $10,000.  Multi-disciplinary scientists choose the WaveDriver  as their electrochemical system of choice.

WaveDriver 10


WaveDriver 10 and WaveDriver20 System.

This benchtop potentiostat/galvanostat system is primarily chosen for applications including traditional two-electrode and three-electrode methods, rotating disk and rotating cylinder electrochemistry, and all other classical methods with current resolution up to 1 amp. The WaveDriver 10 features additional filters and a faster processor than the WaveNow series single-channel potentiostats.

WaveDriver 20

Like the WaveDriver 10, the WaveDriver 20 is capable of performing a wide range of electroanalytical techniques.  The WaveDriver 20 bipotentiostat/galvanostat includes two working electrode channels for applications like rotating ring-disk electrochemistry.


These portable instruments offer a convenient alternative to traditional stationary benchtop instruments. Weighing less than 200 grams, the WaveNano potentiostat system features a convenient USB interface, a fully functional potentiostat and a galvanostat, and our powerful AfterMath instrument control and data analysis software.

This is the ultimate portable instrument – small enough to fit into your laptop’s tote bag, your carry-on luggage, or your coat pocket. Now you can take your potentiostat to your work area rather than moving your work area to your potentiostat. It is a great option for teaching, research, and industry.


WaveNow, WaveNano, and WaveNow XV

Small form factor, big on capability.

The WaveNow potentiostat/galvanostat is an all-purpose system for everyday use.  Even though it’s a little bit larger than your smartphone, it is quite powerful, robust and capable to perform all classical electrochemical methods. The WaveNow current resolution ranges from 100 nA to 100 mA and its voltage range is +/- 4 V. Customers use the WaveNow in teaching environments, as well as in research and industrial laboratories.


The WaveNowXV shares the same capabilities as the WaveNow but includes an extended voltage range  of +/- 10 V.  Customers that perform battery research often select this model for the larger voltage window.  The WaveNowXV is a great option for teaching, research and industry.


The WaveNano is the low current version of the WaveNow. It features a current resolution from 100 pA up to 1 mA.  The low current option is often selected by users that work in the field of biosensors, and other low-current electrochemical areas.  As with any low-current measurement, additional care to minimize stray environmental noise will be necessary to routinely measure small current signals above noise.
