Tracing the history of samples by their isotope fingerprints
Chemical and physical processes leave traces in the isotopic fingerprint of samples. Nitrogen, carbon, sulfur, oxygen and hydrogen preserve the information related to those processes in their isotope ratios. Our comprehensive portfolio of gas IRMS peripherals helps you access unique sample information and gain conclusive insights in food and beverage testing, forensics, archaeology, ecology and geosciences.
With the EA IsoLink IRMS System, laboratories have an automated, easy-to-use solution for elemental and isotopic analysis. With dedicated helium-saving technology and integration of temperature ramped gas chromatography, analyses are quick and cost-efficient for origin and authenticity determination of samples in a variety of fields: ecology, biology, archaeology, geosciences, food integrity, and forensics.
The GasBench II System fits a diverse range of applications, from natural isotope variation to beverage authenticity and metabolism testing. Automated range recognition and autodilution combine with a dual viscous flow inlet system, resulting in precision, sensitivity and a large dynamic range, as well as fast delivery of pure analyte from complex gas mixtures.
The GC IsoLink II IRMS System creates a seamless solution that combines the separation capabilities of GC with the superior detection power of IRMS. In addition to providing scientists with a wealth of information on compound origin, metabolic, synthetic and diagenetic pathways, the GC IsoLink II IRMS System can be connected with GC/GC-MS techniques to reveal unknown compounds.
The LC IsoLink IRMS System facilitates the analysis of organic samples in liquid form. By connecting an HPLC system with IRMS, reproducible and accurate on-line determination of 13C/12C isotope ratios can be performed for a variety of applications in the fields of metabolism, food and beverage testing, pharmaceutical development, doping control, and biogeochemistry.
History can't hide from the isotope hunter. Geography, geology and growth conditions of foods, fibers, liquids and stone are embedded in their unique isotope fingerprints. Trace your sample history with our complete portfolio of IRMS systems.
