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:


Palmsens specialises in the manufacture of small, portable instruments for sensor development. Due to the extensive software, the devices can of course be used in many areas of physical chemistry. With its dimensions of 43 x 25 x 11 mm, the EmStat is probably one of the smallest potentiostats in the world.

Typical devices: potentiostat, galvanostat

MaterialsM Instruments

MaterialsMates was founded in 2006 by a team of specialists in the field of materials science and development of devices for electrochemistry. The experience is specifically in the areas of battery research, fuel cells, ceramics and complex multi-channel systems.
