During my time at Santa Clara University, I worked on a portable potentiostat called Aquasift. Aquasift was designed to be low powered and linked to a cell phone with a USB cable for field use. Also, desktop software was designed for more detailed tests and analysis. Aquasift was designed to support both binary and ASCII data transfers. Aquasift can be used not only with its custom software but can also be used with any terminal software as its output data stream can be formatted as a MATLAB script. The aquasift has three methods for connecting to test cells. First, there are banana connectors for standard test leads. Second, There are pads on the PCB for an optional screw terminal connector. Third, there is a clamp on the bottom of the PCB designed for DropSens printed electrodes.
