Thermo Scientific Delta-V Isotopic Ratio Mass Spectrometer

The heart of the “Fritz Ebner” Isotopic Laboratory is formed by the Delta-V IRMS. Equipped with a Flash Elemental Analyzer, a Carbonate Gas Bench, a Trace GC/IsoLink for fluid samples and a Trace GC/IsoLink for gas samples, this analyzer represents a unique and powerfull appliance for determination of the stable isotopes of Hydrogen, Carbon, Nitrogen and Oxygen in a broad variety of samples.
