With its measuring instruments, test benches and systems, EKTechnologies, in close cooperation with LXInstruments, provides solutions for the urgent questions of our time, especially in the field of renewable energies. Starting with test systems for fuel cells and much more.

The portfolio ranges from the ultra-portable PalmSens SensitSmart potentiostats for research on electrochemical sensors to the highly specialised IVIUM potentiostats for numerous fields of application in electrochemistry to the all-in-one fuel cell test benches by Scribner Associates. Last but not least, we are able to tackle especially customised and novel problems regarding high currents (over 100A), impedance analysis with over 120 channels and many more, together with the experts from MaterialsMates. We also offer a wide range of accessories such as measuring cells and electrodes.

EKTechnologies represents the following companies:


BASi Research Products

BASi was founded as a part of Inotiv, Inc. in 1974 in Indianapolis, Indiana, to commercialize an electrochemical detector for liquid chromatography. Since then BASi has grown as an instrument company that provides academia and industry equipment for electrochemical experiments and in vivo sampling. BASi’s portfolio comprises potentiostats, galvanostats, liquid chromatography products as well as a broad array of accessories for static and flow experiments, such as flow cells, electrodes and cell stands.  

Typical electrochemical devices: potentiostats/galvanostats, different working, counter and reference electrodes, RDE, electrochemical (flow)cells.

Ivium Technologies

Ivium, the leading manufacturer of potentiostats, is also an important contact in the field of battery research. The single and multi-channel systems Vertex, IviCycle and OctoStat are extremely popular with users due to their large current and voltage range. Of course, all devices have impedance and can be equipped with a 5th channel for measuring the half cells. The easy handling of the CycliScan software, especially for battery researchers, completes the appearance.
