Vacuum Atmospheres Omni-lab Glove Box


The Vacuum Atmospheres Omni-lab glove box provides an inert argon atmosphere with "<"1 ppm oxygen and water. The box is custom fitted with electrical connections for use with either the potentiostat or the battery tester.

Maccor Battery Tester


The Maccor 4000 series battery tester is used for charge/discharge testing. It is capable of testing 32 batteries simultaneously as well as sensing 16 auxiliary potentials and measuring 32 temperatures. It has the option of accepting additional battery test channels for a total possible 96 channels.

Autolab Potentiostat


The autolab pgstat302N potentiostat is most commonly used for voltammetry, where a potential is applied to a system and the resulting current is measured, however it is capable of performing a wide array of electrochemical measurements; e.g. impedance spectroscopy.

El-Cell ECC-Air Electrochemical Test Cell


This is the El-Cell ECC-Air electrochemical test cell. It is used for testing lithium-oxygen batteries.

Mettler Toledo Seven-Multi


The Mettler Toledo Seven-Multi can be used to measure either the conductivity or the pH of a solution.

Lab Scale Redox Flow Battery Static Test Cells


These are our custom made lab scale redox flow battery static test cells. Pictured are three non-aqueous all-vanadium redox flow batteries being charged and discharged using the Maccor battery tester.
