2018 Proceedings (MDPI)  
Scientists are always searching for inventions and developing new methods for the detection of pathogenic bacteria in drinking water. Some of those techniques are based on electrochemical reactions, performed by a device called potentiostat. For in situ analysis, there is a high demand for hardware efficient instruments with a customized set of requirements including Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) measurements. Therefore, we developed the 'EcoStat' device. As outcome of further
