TRADITIONAL RADIOGENIC ISOTOPE ANALYSES
We analyse routinely traditional radiogenic isotopes that are commonly applied to a wide range of water, soil and hard-rock samples. These include Sr (Neptune & Triton), Nd (Neptune and triton), Hf and Pb (both Neptune) isotopes.
For ancient samples, we perform isotope dilution analyses for high-precision ratios and concentrations of Rb-Sr, Sm-Nd and Lu-Hf.
NON-TRADITIONAL STABLE ISOTOPES
We are specialised in the analyses of non-traditional stable Fe isotopes. We further measure Cu, Zn, Ni, Mo, Rb, Zr, and Ag isotopes in a selection of samples. All of these analyses are performed on the Neptune+.
Stable Nd isotopes are performed via TIMS (Triton+) using the double spike technique.
TRADITIONAL STABLE ISOTOPES
We routinely analyse O-H isotopes in water samples with our Delta instrument.
TRACE ELEMENT ANALYSES
For the dating of accessory mineral phases we use isotope dilution for high-precision geochronology of garnet (Sm-Nd, Lu-Hf) and mica (Rb-Sr). We further perform in-situ analyses with our laser ablation systems on zircons, monazites, titanites, rutiles, and mica.
Split stream analyses relate to the combined analyses of dating, isotope ratio and trace element analyses using a single laser spot (on a mineral) and 2-3 different mass spectrometers contemporaneously. For this, we simply split the gas stream to the instruments.
