For humans, multitasking is a myth. There is a high probability of failure with this practice, and associated negative effects include decreased attention, lower productivity, worsened memory, an increased risk of errors, increased stress, and more [1]. What if we could overcome these issues?

A new multichannel instrument for electrochemical analysis from Metrohm DropSens makes multitasking possible for laboratories – μStat-i MultiX. With this instrument, laboratories can increase productivity and performance and enhance agility and flexibility with up to 16 channels on which up to 16 users can work simultaneously on the same (or different) experiments using multiple disciplines. Perform analyses automatically, run multiple experiments simultaneously, and control individual channels independently. Multitasking is now possible with μStat-i MultiX – go multi in all aspects!

μStat-i MultiX


µStat-i MultiX boosts the multi-user experience and speeds up projects

Metrohm DropSens offers a multichannel bipotentiostat, galvanostat, and impedance analyzer with MultiplEIS® technology, enabling electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements to be performed in two-channel mode. µStat-i MultiX has been designed to support and simplify multidisciplinary and multi-user research allowing an efficient, versatile, and reliable user experience.

µStat-i MultiX meets the challenging demands of the modern research laboratory. As such, this innovative system, dedicated to research groups of any size, transforms daily work by allowing greater flexibility and speed in analysis. In addition, since it is suitable for working not only with screen-printed electrodes, but also with conventional assemblies, it provides a wide variety of possible set- up configurations for many different applications.

How can you save more time during your analysis and research projects with µStat-i MultiX? Just pay attention to the following points!

Unparalleled multi-user experience

Up to 16 different users can work simultaneously with the μStat-i MultiX This allows researchers to:

  • perform multiple measurements at the same time
  • reproduce equivalent measurements
  • work with different techniques
  • work on different projects
  • and more

The result is total independence for each person who uses the same equipment.

Unrivalled location flexibility

No obstacles stand in the way of your research thanks to the remote connection possibility. Users now have more flexibility regarding their location and the position of the μStat-i MultiX in the laboratory. It is no longer necessary to be near the instrument to perform experiments or process the resulting data, as these actions can be performed via intranet/VPN.

An efficient and scalable solution

Meeting current and future needs of researchers has never been easier. The instrument can be initially configured according to the present needs of the laboratory. Four different models are available:

  • μStat-i Multi4
  • μStat-i Multi8
  • μStat-i Multi12
  • μStat-i Multi16


Even after purchasing the instrument, it is possible to expand the number of channels from 4 up to 16.

In addition, the channels can be configured with galvanic isolation, making it possible to work in floating mode.
