Essential Potentiostats

SP-50e Potentiostat.

A cost-effective potentiostat with advanced functionality, ideal for Education

A robust, single channel, general purpose potentiostat perfect for both general electrochemistry research needs as well as teaching.

A robust, single-channel, general-purpose electrochemical workstation, the SP-50e is perfectly suited to both general electrochemistry research needs as well as teaching.


This potentiostat offers a valuable opportunity to teach modern electrochemistry in undergraduate laboratory setting. While low-cost potentiostats have some issues that limit their usage, the SP-50e benefits from renowned BioLogic expertise in both hardware and software. The communication between the hardware and a computer requires no programming skill.


SP-50e potentiostat combined with EC-Lab® control and analysis software provides a full, integrated solution for students to study a variety of electrochemical reactions and systems. With its reduced footprint, light weight (3.9 kg) and carrying handle, students and instructors can easily move this potentiostat within the laboratory.


This research-grade potentiostat is suitable for performing experiments such as Cyclic Voltammetry, ChronoAmperometry, and Linear Sweep Voltammetry for Rotating-Disk-Electrode, as well as all the 80+ techniques available in EC-Lab software.


A ±1 ampere capable range makes the SP-50e perfect for energy-based applications including battery, supercapacitor, fuel cell, and electrolysis research.


Powered by BioLogic EC-Lab software, widely recognized by leading scientists as the benchmark control and analysis software for potentiostat / galvanostats, users are able to exploit a wide range of functions covering not just potentiostat control, but electrochemical analysis as well.


There is no need to split tasks across different software applications. Everything can be found in one place – simplifying your professional life, and saving you precious research time. All this, in a compact potentiostat with a reduced laboratory footprint, opening up space on the laboratory bench.
