The lab is currently equipped with three Finnigan Delta mass spectrometers, four elemental analyzers, one GasBench II, two zero-blank autosamplers, one PN 150 autosampler, one GC PAL autosampler, two high-precision balances, a ball mill grinder, a drying oven and a freeze drier.
For δ13C and δ15N analysis, the Costech 4010, NC2500 OR NA1500 elemental analyzers are interfaced to the Delta XP/Conflo III, the Delta Plus/Conflo II or Delta V/Conflo IV mass spectrometers respectively.
In 2015, the SINLAB was awarded a CFI grant adding the Delta V/Conflo IV, GasBench II and GC Pal autosampler to our inventory. The new equipment allows us to analyze water samples for 2H and 18O by direct injection on the TC/EA. The
GasBench II will allow us to analyze 18O of bone.
