Would not be able to get it all done without the ease of this instrument.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Mass loading of surface interaction with material

"The instrument comes almost ready to use, all you have to do it install software and connect the cables then you are up and running. The data is extremely easy to obtain to do calculations for necessary information. Able to complete many surfaces in a short period of time."

Great Instrument.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Analytical sensor development

"The product is robust, easy to use and the software interface is very intuitive. Pretty much what we were expecting. We have only used for 1 year. From Gamry Instruments there are a lot of application notes for EIS systems but almost none for the QCM."

Such a small but useful, easy to use, practical, Mobile, and stable instrument.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:electrochemistry, sensors, drug delivery, biosensors, adsorption, inhibition

"The instrument is very stable and dependable. Easy to use and mobile. We have purchased a potentionstat with it so we have a complete system. As research tool for sensors it is quite useful for both static or fluid cells. Now we have a task of applying it for gas sensing tests. We are very satisfied with the system."

Great instrument, easy to use, very stable
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Materials chemistry and energy storage

"I have used several QCM instruments from different manufacturers. I compared several QCM/eQCM instruments on the market and chose the Gamry eQCM based on the price and description of the instrument. I like the instrument very much so far. It is very easy to use, especially for eQCM measurements. The interface for eQCM is simply a plug and use design, avoids any capacitors or filters. The software is very straight forward, my undergraduate students can learn how to use it in less than an hour. The instrument can measure the frequency spectrum over a large range, instead of the oscillation frequency only. However, it can not provide the "damping resistance" value. The signal I obtained is very stable, does not need a Faraday cage . The costumer service after I got this instrument is super and great when I encountered some problems, including phone and email instructions and a quick delivery of a replacement part. There are many online instruction documents and videos, you can learn the technique very quickly if you are not very familiar with QCM. Seems the "four probe" connector is not very robust, but engineering it is obviously a challenge. None of such type of connectors are perfect. Definitely recommend this instrument for research and reaching use."

Excellent service and easy installation
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:characterization of polymer film

"Great product and reliable measurement. It was purchased a year ago and it is still running well. I have seen many literature publishing the results with the unit I have purchased. It is a very useful tool for undergraduate research as it is not easy to break and data analysis is pretty simple."

Gamry’s eQCM 10M is a rapid, impedance-scanning electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance (EQCM). The EQCM adds a valuable tool in the analytical toolbox of anyone investigating interfacial processes. Corrosion, ion intercalation, ion adsorption, polymer growth, and sensor binding events are all interfacial processes that produce mass changes.  These mass changes can be measured by monitoring the resonant frequencies of an oscillating quartz crystal.   

Features:  

  • Accommodates any crystal from 1-10 MHz in any cell or holder
  • Resolution that allows detection of mass changes down to 10 ng/cm2
  • USB Interface
  • Integrated QCM and Gamry Potentiostat acquisition                                          

Applications:                                                      

  • Electroactive Polymers
  • Corrosion Studies
  • Electrodeposition
  • Li+ Intercalation
  • Self-Assembled Monolayers
  • Antibody-Antigen Interactions
  • Sensors
