Isotope Geochemistry Facility

Clean Analytical Geochemistry Laboratory

A new ~750 sq ft clean lab complex that includes Class 1000 room conditions, as well as eleven Class 100 laminar fume hoods and/or work cubbies, two weighing stations, acid distillation fume hood, clean MilliQ water supply, a fume hood for beaker cleaning, and ample storage space for samples and materials.

Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometry (TIMS)

A new TIMS instrument and ancillary equipment in a climate controlled room (along with the IRMS) which is adjacent to a new clean laboratory for TIMS sample preparation. The TIMS permits acquisition of high precision 143Nd/144Nd and 87Sr/86Sr isotope data for the smallest samples down to the sub-nanogram level.

Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IRMS)

Thermo Delta V plus IRMS is equipped with universal triple collectors and an additional Faraday cups for analysis of hydrogen isotopes. The IRMS is linked to a Conflo IV, Gas Bench II, and autosampler for analysis of C and O isotopic compositions of C and H and O isotopic compositions of water.
