It is essential to know before starting the sample analysis if the electrode is in a good state or not. A well working
electrode will increase the quality of your results, as the accuracy and precision will be increased. Furthermore, tedious error tracking can be omitted and no sample is wasted due to a defect or old electrode. There exist several ways how to check metal electrodes, e.g., measurement of redox potentials, potentiometric titration or bivoltammetric titration. This bulletin describes the best methods for the various by Metrohm available metal electrodes.
