Stable isotope lab
Finnigan MAT 253 for normal dual inlet and carrier gas analyses and on-line CO2-laser fluorination line for single grain and whole rock analyses of silicates and oxides. This mass spectrometer is also used for H-isotope analyses of waters (H-Device) and any offline samples such as CO2 separated from fluid inclusions and/or H-isotope analyses of water from fluid inclusions.
Thermo Finnigan Delta Plus XL for carrier gas GasBench analyses of carbonates (C- and O-isotope compositions), dissolved inorganic carbon and oxygen isotope analyses of waters, as well as on-line TC/EA for hydrogen and oxygen isotope analyses of solids (hydrous mineral, phosphates, sulphates, nitrates), liquids (waters).
Thermo Scientific Delta V for dual inlet and carrier gas analyses and on-line EA for bulk sulphur, carbon, and nitrogen isotope analyses in sediments, minerals and rocks, GC and GC-TC combustion for molecular-specific analyses of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen and nitrogen isotope analyses.
WS-CRDS (Wavelength-Scanned Cavity Ring Down Spectroscopy system) – laser-based analyses that is very precise for the hydrogen and oxygen isotope analyses of only Small amounts of water.
