Easy to use.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Corrosion testing

"The potentiostat is easy to setup and the software is simple to use. However, the Framework and ECehm Analyst software looks very dated and does have some unfortunate bugs (e.g. incessant warnings about experiment data coming from terminated/aborted tests even when it’s not true). The support team is helpful to answer questions."

Excellent results. planning to get another one to increase the number of channels.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Batteries and supercapacitor research

"I bought this potentiastat together with a 30A current booster and the results I have been gettting for supercapacitors and capacitive deionization are fantastic and quite repeatable. Compared to Solartron Analytical potentiastats that I used during my postdoctoral fellow research, Reference 3000 is very user friendly. After installing and calibrating the instrument, I emailed Gamry to check whether they offer short courses especially on EIS. Gamry replied promptly and though they said do not have in-house short training course. They informed that they offer courses from time to time and showed me how I can subscribe to know when the oncoming courses will be offered. Considering the quality of data and repeatability vis-a-vis the amount of money I spent buying it, I am really getting value for my money."

More practical training needed.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Electrochemistry, corrosion, batteries, biochemistry

"There is a lack of practical training for the various techniques the device is capable of. Likewise with how to extract parameters from the figures and results obtained."

Great system, great results and the best for the electrochemical analysis of materials.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Electrochemical performance analysis of fuel cell catalysts

"We use it for the electrochemical performance analysis of catalysts in fuel cell test stations. It is very easy to use and ensures we get high quality and reproducible data sets. We are using Reference 3000 Booster along with Reference 3000 potentiostat/galvanostat/ZRA for extra current for fuel cell testing. If someone wants a potentiostat/galvanostat for their research works, in my opinion they should go for Gamry as it's easy to handle and work with. From simple electrochemical voltammetric testing of materials to high current applications, Gamry is the best choice. The after-sales care is appreciable and now I've got to know about its price from the purchaser, I think the value for money is good for its high performance."

Works well, could be improved with data safety and connectivity.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Water electrolysis research

"Works well with most test equipment and gives accurate results. Would be great if rubbing test data was saved in a buffer to avoid data loss when the connection to the test PC is lost. Similarly, it would be great to have an option for ethernet connection instead of the finicky USB."

A very nice instrument for pretty much every electrochemical application.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Plating and corrosion testing of aluminium alloys

"The Gamry Instruments model 3000 potentiostat we purchased has yielded excellent experimental results. Our development programs have taken new life with its capability of cyclic amperometry. The customer support from Gamry has been excellent - always a prompt, knowledgeable response."

Have been using Ref. 3000 and 1010e for 5 years. No complaints since.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Corrosion of ferrous and non ferrous alloys

"We at Oregon State University have been using the Reference 3000 and 1010e for the past 5 years and we have not had a single complaint since. The potentiostats have been working flawlessly. Furthermore the technical support from Gamry is very prompt in answering any questions I have had regarding any tests or electrochemical concepts. The Gamry Framework and echem analyst's interface is super user friendly, and all the purchases we have made have been worth the investment."

Good product! Still have lots of functions to explore.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Solid oxide fuel cells and electrolysis cells testing

"The product is reliable. The only pain point is the price. When we need to do multiple channel testing with high accuracy, another 3000 or 600+ is too expensive and drags us down."

Great all-rounder for the electrochemistry lab
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyzing ion exchange membranes and electrochemical cells

"The results are very reproducible, the accuracy is very good. The software is very open and adjustable to our needs for some more specific measurements, although it takes some time to get to know all the software functionalities. We are happy with the first measurements and are all looking forward to continue the work with our new workhorse- and get to know all the functionalities."

  • Application Area:Fundamental battery testing

"The Gamry is a reliable, easy to use, piece of equipment. The team using it ranges from scientists and engineers to a technician with little electrochemical training. Everyone was up and running, in a productive manner, with in days of receiving the equipment. We can run tests that last days with minimal oversight, change tests with ease, and analyze the data either using the Analyst software or in other product."
