  • Still Making Waves!

    Last May, Pine Research announced the WaveDriver 200 Bipotentiostat with EIS at the 233rd ECS Meeting in Seattle, WA.  We were thrilled to finally be able to offer Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and related analysis tools for the first time in our company’s proud history.  In celebration, we threw a massive beach party filled with tons of swag and giveaways, including beach balls and frisbees!  The weather in Seattle doesn’t easily lend itself to a beach party; however, the Fall 2018 ECS Meeting is conveniently in a slightly more tropical locale!

    This year’s joint ECS and SMEQ meeting (AiMES) is in Cancún, Mexico.  This destination conference is a great opportunity to stay current on the latest electrochemical research while enjoying the tropical atmosphere of the Moon Palace Resort in beautiful Cancún.  As such, we thought it would be fitting that you can pick up a beach ball or a frisbee at the Pine Research booth #18.  If you didn’t have a chance to see the WaveDriver 200 at the Seattle ECS meeting, come experience it at AiMES 2018.  Since our initial announcement of the WaveDriver 200 Bipotentiostat with EIS at the Seattle meeting we’ve been working around the clock to make sure the instrument is ready to ship.  You can currently find more information about the WaveDriver 200 on our website, and while you are visiting our booth to grab a beach ball, you should also check out our new and improved AfterMath Data Organizer Software with excellent new features like circuit fitting, data import, and much more.

    If you are planning on attending AiMES 2018, stop by the Pine Research booth #18 in the Universal Ballroom on the 2nd floor of the Expo Center.  Check out our new WaveDriver 200 Bipotentiostat with EIS.  Or at least stop by to grab some beach swag while you’re in Cancún!

  • Beach Party at ECS Seattle!

    Pine Research ECS Beach Party

    Pine Research Instrumentation has been hard at work developing our latest research grade potentiostat, the WaveDriver 200 Bipotentiostat/Galvanostat with EIS!  The official launch of the WaveDriver 200 will be at the 233rd ECS meeting in Seattle, WA.  The launch of the WaveDriver 200 is a significant milestone in our company and we are celebrating in an equally significant manner.  Just like our new WaveDriver 200 EIS-capable potentiostat, we will be making waves at the ECS meeting.

  • Electrochemical Education for our Food, Energy, and Water Challenges

    The theme of the 255th ACS National Meeting is Nexus of Food, Energy & Water: Adapting to Future Challenges.  The Sunday opening session speakers include leading experts in renewable energy, water treatment, and smart agriculture.  It is likely these talks will present many challenges we face in society and how chemistry can provide solutions to these problems.  The talks may also enlighten some chemistry and engineering students in high school, undergraduate, and graduate school to pursue research careers.  Today’s younger generation are tomorrow’s research leaders.   A thorough chemical education is necessary for our students to solve the challenges that await them.  One area of chemical education that has been lacking in most academic institutions is electrochemistry.  Concerning our challenges in food, energy, & water, electrochemistry plays an important role in all of those topics.
