Sometimes we get reliable and reproducible results, sometimes not.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area: EIS testing, CV test, charge-discharge test, polarization test, etc. for supercapacitors and electro

"Sometimes we get reliable and reproducible results, sometimes not. Recently we have faced some problems with charge-discharge test that related to the software problem of Gamry apparently. The articles form Gamry are normally very useful, but not very specific sometimes to tackle our issues when we face them."

High price–performance ratio potentiostat.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Electrochemistry, fuel cell, batteries, corrosion

"I have used the Interface 5000E and 1010E to achieve relatively high-quality and reproducible results. It is easy to use. However, the electrochemical noise technique limits the duration of data collection. Our experiment requires the data record frequency of 2Hz for months, whereas the Gamry Interface 1010E restricts the time duration length. Therefore, we have to stop the electrochemical noise program and resume the data collection again every two days. The sequence function in Gamry workstation is not as straightfoward as that of BioLogic instrument. It would be helpful if the Gamry software could selectively show one CV cycle plot in continuous CV cycles. This has been realized in BioLogic instrument. Specifically, if I collected 10 CV cycles continuously. In the BioLogic electrochemical workstation software (EC-lab), I can select and show one specific CV cycle among 10 cycles. However, the Gamry software (Gamry Echem Analyst) only show all overlapped 10 CV cycles. Overall, the ease of use is 85%. I have not used after-sales care. The Gamry Interface series have better value for money compared to other commercial potentiostats."

Serving its purpose! one of the great EC tools in the market.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Electrochemistry

"Mainly we use Gamry 5000E for the electrochemical studies of solid state batteries and fuel cells. The product is pretty compact. After using potentiostats from other manufacturers I think that the Gamry user interface is intuitive and user friendly. Impedance data is pretty reliable on solid state batteries. Can think of including FRA in all potentiostat models."

Good current capabilities without booster. No online parameter edition
Rating: 3.0

  • Application Area:batteries, energy devices

"The installation of the Gamry is quite straightforward. However, the description of the applications is somehow confusing for batteries. There are no illustration on how connections must be done. For instance, the definition of half cell and full cell is different in chemistry or in engineering. An illustration would be useful. Also, the implementation of tests do not allow to modify the parameters during operation. For long measurements such as those related to battery aging, that can last for 15 days to 1 month, online parameter edition is critical. Up to now, accuracy and resolution meet expectations. Also, its size is practical for mobile applications. No external booster is required, which is very practical."

Manufacturer's Response

Gamry potentiostats have a lot of flexibility so there are different ways of running tests. Our Help system explains the differences in the software setup. Additionally, depending on what type of cell you are testing, our software will then tell you how to make the connections. Finally, thank you for the suggestions on improving our software.

Convenient, accurate with good results
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze the performance of SOFC

"I used the Interface 5000E Potentiostat for 1.5 months. It is very convenient compared to the Zahner-Zennium (Germany). The result is accurate and as the same as that of tested from Solartron (English). Now, my lab has three Zenniums. Well, my favourite is the Interface 5000E. Spent the least money and you get a great return."
