INSTRUMENTS & RESOURCES
We are operating a range of mass spectrometers and supporting instruments for a wide range of element and isotope analyses. Below is a list of the major instrumental equipment of our lab and a brief description of its use. Feel free to enquire about details of our instruments and their operational capacities.
NEPTUNE PLUS MC-ICP-MS
The Neptune plus is a multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer and our laboratory flagship. It is used for high precision analyses of isotope ratios. With the Neptune+, we analyse elements with a mass range covering almost the entire periodic table
TRITON PLUS TIMS
The Triton plus is a thermal ionisation mass spectrometer of the latest generation.
DELTA XY GAS MASS SPECTROMTER
ICAP-TQ TRIPLE QUAD MASS SPECTROMETER
ICAP-Q SINGLE-QUAD MASS SPECTROMETER
ICAP- 7000 SERIES
ICP-OES for major and minor element analyses
RESOLUTION LASER ABLATION SYSTEMS
The Resolution laser ablation sytem features an excimer laser with a xy ml volume sample cell
NEW WAVE LASER ABLATION SYSTEM
Our New Wave laser ablation system has been our working horse for many years and is now dedicated to sulphide analyses.
CLASS 300 CLEAN ROOM
In our Class 300 Clean Room facilities, we undertake rock digestions, element purifications and chemical experiments under ultra clean environmental conditions
