Light stable isotope laboratory

Light stable isotope laboratory

The laboratory house 3 mass spectrometers and a range of preparation systems.

  1. Continuous He-flow to analyse:
    δ13C and δ18O of DIC in waters by multiflow
    δ18O by equilibration of the water itself by multiflow
    δ13C and δ15N of rocks, minerals, soil and vegetation by Elementar MicroCube EA

  2. Continuous He-flow to analyse:
    δ13C and δ18O of carbonates by multiflow
    dD of waters by Cr-reduction

  3. Dual inlet mass spectrometry to analyse:
    δ13C and δ18O of small sample carbonates (20-200µg)
    multicollector capabilities to measure masses 47 and 48 in carbonates
