the perfect match

Sciospec Solutions for  Electrical Impedance Tomography

Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) is an imaging technique that visualizes conductivity or impedance distributions both in 2D and in 3D. Sciospec is partnering with world leading scientists in the field to deliver solutions that enable using EIT both in research and in practical applications.

Apart from our standard instruments for easy entry into the world of EIT we also offer fully customized EIT products as well as application-specific OEM solutions. Build on Sciospec´s flexible technology plattform, scalabilty is at the heart of all our instruments: Channel counts of up to 256 are available in standard configurations and we even have reference system designs with a lot more than that.

Over the years we have realized applications ranging from the classical medical (lung ventilation monitoring and electrode positioning problems) over industrial applications (pipe system monitoring and contamination tracking) to state of the art chip based EIT for biosensing applications.

Let's begin with Sciospec's EIT lab instruments

Sciospec's EIT systems (EIT16/32/64/128+) are specifically designed for measurements for electrical impedance tomography. True parallel measurements and tightly synchronized switching allows for fast frame rates. No matter what channel count you decide to go with, you'll benefit from:

  • dual role electrode connections serving both as voltage measurement and current injection ports
  • tightly synchronized data acquisition block for truly simultaneous sampling of all channels
  • injection switch matrix for selection of any combination of 2 channels for positive and negative injection ports
  • switch matrix either based on ultra-low leakage reed relays or high speed semicondutor switches
  • Sciospec SineFit algorithm for fast and precise signal extraction
  • broad frequency range (e.g. 100 Hz ... 1 MHz)
  • spectral measurements with frequency sweeps with up to 128 frequencies
  • current excitation from 100 nA ... 10 mA peak amplitude
  • frame rates up to 100 fps
  • software with ready to go imaging algorithms
  • fully customizable - just ask us

For easy entry a software provides EIT image reconstruction functionalities for time- and frequency-difference imaging. Alternatively you can just use the MATLAB code and import your data to EIDORS or write your own image reconstruction and import that to our software.

    • custom lenghts

Cable sets can be selected as an accessory for our EIT devices


  • extension module for the Sciospec EIT16 system
  • multiplexer to connect sensors in slide-in format
  • 48 channels: 3 banks with 16 channels each (only three measurement runs for all 48 channels) 
  • sensor carriers available at Sciospec

The EIT SlideChip adapter and the SlideChip carriers can be selected as an accessory for our EIT16 device

With multichannel scalability as one of our core competences - EIT is a perfect match for our technology platform. Not only do we provide our expertise in instrumentation design, but we also have expert data scientists with long time experience in imaging algorithms for EIT embedded in our development team.

And how about OEM?

As all our platform technology EIT is available as OEM, too. Our plaform allows for cost-efficient customization and easy integration of our technology to customers' products. Safe time to market by getting the best impedance technology turn-key ready by the leading impedance OEM company. A portable device for mobile health or a massive multichannel platform for a screening application - everything is possible. You also need a graphical user interface? Okay. You're going for a medical device? No problem. Just get in touch with us!
