The WaveNano® portable USB potentiostat is a low-current version of our popular WaveNowxv instrument. The lower current ranges make the WaveNano a better choice for researchers involved in microelectrode or electrochemical sensor research.  This fully functional potentiostat/galvanostat weighs less than 300 grams, features a convenient USB interface, and is operated using our powerful AfterMath® instrument control and data analysis software.


Portable. Only 30 mm thick and less than 175 mm long, this potentiostat is the ultimate portable instrument–small enough to fit into your laptop’s tote bag, your carry-on luggage, or your coat pocket.  You can take your potentiostat to your work area rather than having to move your work area to your potentiostat. An optional battery pack lets you take your potentiostat into the field when needed.

Capable. Designed with the everyday user in mind, the specifications for the potentiostat are broad enough to permit you to perform a wide range of routine electrochemical techniques but also prudently chosen to allow for a simple and affordable design. Popular and common techniques such as cyclic voltammetry, bulk electrolysis, differential pulse voltammetry, square-wave and pulse voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and chronopotentiometry are easily configured and executed using our AfterMath software package.
