DropSens is an Innovative Technology-Based Firm specialized in the design and manufacture of instruments for Electrochemistry Research, based in Asturias, Spain.
DropSens offers the researcher, through an intensive and continuous R&D, innovative electrochemical tools with the aim of giving flexible, user-friendly, portable and effective products.
At DropSens we develop screen-printed electrodes, based on thick-film hybrid technology, with the aim of providing researchers with a powerful tool for the development of electrochemical sensors of diverse nature: chemical, enzyme, immune and genosensors, etc. These sensors are aimed for important applications in different fields, from environmental to clinical analysis. Screen-printed electrodes offer a number of advantages versus conventional electrodes: they are suitable for working with microvolumes and for decentralized assays (point-of-care tests, in-situ monitoring, etc.).
We have focused in the design and development of portable potentiostats which offer the main electrochemical techniques while retaining the accuracy of bigger instruments, offering an easy-to-use computer interface.
The combination of electrochemical and optical techniques allows performing spectroelectrochemical measurements. Spectroelectrochemistry is a useful solution for many different research fields, including materials characterization, photochemical energy conversion or photovoltaic cells. SPELEC instrument combines a bipotentiostat/galvanostat with a spectrometer and a light source. An integrated solution with dedicated software and accessories is now available.
