To view pricing, you must create an account and login using the "ACCOUNT" menu above.

The Compact Voltammetry Cell Kit is a low-cost and easy-to-use, yet robust system for both electrochemical education and basic research.  The cell kit is based around screen-printed electrodes (SPEs).  Just like your favorite t-shirt, these electrodes are screen-printed onto substrates for simple use.  The disposable carbon-based SPEs use a polymer substrate that is compatible only in aqueous media, while the platinum and gold SPEs are printed on a durable ceramic substrate, which is insulted with glass.  These ceramic SPEs are compatible in nearly any organic or aqueous solvent.  Additional accessories for larger volume, temperature control, and low volumes (1 mL) are available.  A few unique features of this kit are as follows:

  • Cost-effective to implement as compared to traditional electrodes and cells
  • Ideal for educational laboratory use
  • Often used for biosensor development and working in a glove box
  • Carbon SPEs disposable - use for one experiment/lab/day and toss
  • Pt and Au SPEs reusable - clean electrochemically between experiments

See "Description" tab below for additional information.

The Compact Voltammetry Cell Kit includes cell grip, cell cap, cell, starter pack of screen-printed electrode, generic mini-USB style to banana jack cell cable. Additional accessories available, see below.

Virtually Student-Proof.  Perfect for the undergraduate lab, our innovative cell design gives your students a rapid way to set up a voltammetry cell without all that hassle of polishing electrodes, tending to reference electrodes, and chasing countless cables around the lab bench.

Incredibly Low Cost Electrodes.  Single use, screen-printed electrode designs are available in quantity packaging at a fraction of the cost of more traditional electrode designs. Use them one time and then just throw them away.

Custom Cap and Cable. Our unique cap design couples an edge card connector with a compact cable connection (it’s actually just like the mini-USB connector on your digital camera). The cap fits on to everyday, ordinary disposable 20 mL lab vials.

Ideal for Teaching Cyclic Voltammetry.  In an instructional setting, we recommend using our screen-printed carbon electrodes with a well-behaved, reversible electrochemical system.

Works with Any Potentiostat. The cable terminates at three banana jacks to provide easy connection to the potentiostat of your choice. Note that our instructional cell is available as part of our academic WaveNow potentiostat bundle.

Pine Research Cell Cable Color Code

  • RED  – working (drive) electrode
  • ORANGE – working (sense) electrode
  • GREEN – counter electrode
  • WHITE – reference electrode
