Scanning probe electrochemistry encompasses a range of scientific techniques combining both electrochemistry and microscopy. Bulk electrochemistry allows the investigation of global processes; however, it does not necessarily indicate the cause of such bulk processes. Conversely, with microscopy, surface features can be measured, but the effect of these features is not clear. Scanning probe electrochemistry  gives users a “best of both worlds” approach locally mapping the electrochemistry of a sample. Through scanning probe electrochemistry, a correlation between activity and features can be made. 


Modular scanning electrochemistry

A modular, state-of-the-art instrument allowing users to exploit 9 local electrochemistry techniques.

The M470 is the fourth generation scanning probe electrochemistry instrument available from Bio-Logic. Building on previous generations the M470 offers the highest level of flexibility yet. Users can select from seven different module types to perform nine different scanning probe techniques. This gives users a range of information from topography to electrochemical activity to sample current.

  • 9 techniques from 7 modules
  • Full range of accessories to tailor the experimental setup
  • 110 mm scan range on all 3 axes
  • Constant height and constant distance measurements available


Powerful Electrochemistry workstation for measuring the local activity of samples

Compact SECM built for high-resolution imaging, x,y stages are fully separated from z stage to reduce crosstalk

The SECM150 represents a new standard for fundamental SECM. It has been designed for constant height dc-SECM measurements. All of its components from the PU51 potentiostats to the scanning stage have been optimized for these measurements. Therefore the SECM150 is capable of achieving high-resolution measurements, even of dynamic samples.

  • Small footprint
  • x, y stage separate from z stage to reduce interactions
  • Fast enough for dynamic samples
