Batch Injection Analysis: a smart alternative

As an alternative to FIA systems, we have developed the Batch Injection Analysis (BIA) system, a robust and smart technique that eliminates some of the drawbacks associated with Flow Injection Analysis systems, such as air bubbles or leaking.

How does Batch Injection Analysis work? The BIA system uses a programmable electronic micropipette dispensing successive drops at reproducible flow rates and injection volumes. The solution is dispensed close to the working electrode surface. As the flow rate is highly controlled, the resulting peaks are as sharp as the ones obtained with FIA systems. Batch Injection Analysis systems are an easy way to obtain successive measurements in tubeless systems.

Cells for Corrosion Research

Metrohm Autolab potentiostat/galvanostat instruments are ideally suited for electrochemical research into the corrosion properties of metals. For this type of application, a cell for the metal sample and the electrolyte is required.

We offer a selection of cells for corrosion research:

  • Corrosion cells, available in two sizes (400 mL and 1 L) for circular samples.
  • Flat cell designed for large, flat samples (coated or bare metal).

Cells for Electrocatalysis Research

Electrocatalysis experiments with noble metals and platinum in particular must be carried out in the cleanest possible conditions. With a total volume of 250 mL, the Autolab RRDE cell meets this requirement.

The cell can be easy assembled and can be completely taken apart for cleaning. All parts in contact with the solution are made of materials with the best chemical resistance.

The Autolab RRDE cell for ECAT research creates a stable measurement environment with the thermostatic jacket and two-way gas purge.

Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) made easy

The Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) cells feature an open/close magnet system to make electrode replacement quick and easy. As our FIA cells are available in a variety of formats and materials, you will find a suitable cell for many modes and sample solutions.

One assay, eight results – with multichannel cells. If efficiency matters, you have the possibility to run eight samples simultaneously on independent channels. Alternatively, you may also run the same sample on all eight channels, getting eight results for one sample in one go.

Cells for spectroelectrochemical measurements

If you need to perform spectroelectrochemical measurements we offer dedicated cells in batch or in flow.

If you are working with low sample volumes down to 100 µL, then you should check out our dedicated cells for transmission, reflection or Raman experiments. These cells also come with the convenient magnetic open/close mechanism for easy electrode replacement. 

We also offer a dedicated flow injection analysis (FIA) cell to perform reflection experiments in combination with thin-layer flow-cell integrated screen printed electrodes.
