There is a need for microprocessor-controlled, battery-operated, analytical instrumentation in environmental and industrial monitoring programmes. The electrochemical techniques of ion-selective electrode potentiometry and voltammetry are ideally suited for this task because of their inherent simplicity and compatability with digital computer-based instrumentation. The task for the future is to build computerized intelligent stand-alone battery-operated devices with comparable performance to their mains-powered laboratory-based cousins.
