Integrated USB powered potentiostat / MUX8-R2 Multiplexer

The EmStatMUX8-R2 combines a MUX8-R2 multiplexer and potentiostat within a single housing.  It allows connection of arrays or other setups made up of up to eight working electrodes in two or three electrode cell types. For more channels you can stack one or more MUX8-R2 units up to a maximum total of 128 channels.

The MUX8-R2 can sample different cells at a rate of 25 ms/cell. This fast sampling rate makes it possible to measure time-dependent techniques, e.g. chronoamperometry, practically simultaneously.  Using the PStrace for windows its possible to perform a different experiment on each of the channels sequentially.
