Stable isotope analysis offers significant insight into different applications and delivers a better understanding of the micro and macro cycling mechanisms of the organic elements through the world around us.
As research grows into new and novel areas, answering questions one may not yet know means that an instrument which can grow with the research is needed, while ensuring the maximum performance for all analysis types.
The isoprime precisION is the highest performing stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer offering wide-ranging flexibility to move in any direction that the research leads.
Introducing a New Experience in IRMS
The isoprime precision is all about analytical power and flexibility. With simple integration of hardware and software delivered in a compact benchtop instrument, it is at the forefront of modern stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry.
The isoprime precisION forms the core of the system; a starting point from which to expand the research. Maximize the possible analyses with the system by selecting any combination of inlet systems and automatically switch between them using the centrION Continuous Flow Interface System which is directly incorporated into the instrument.
But perhaps the research topic demands something else? Then one can interface isoprime precisION to their modified experimental system with the innovative Novel Inlet Control Module (NICM) which offers considerable control of extra I/O with the elegant Method Workflow Designer. Incorporating multi-collector arrays with tailored amplification resistor configurations will drive the experiment even further.
Providing against possible future research needs is simple when one has an instrument which performs to maximum levels. The isoprime precisION offers maximum gas ionization performance and mass resolution all in the most compact footprint possible.
isoprime precisION Flexibility
An extensive portfolio of peripheral inlet systems is available which are designed especially for stable isotope analysis. The choice of inlet system is based on experimental requirements but whichever inlet is selected, one can be sure that the samples are handled exactly and faithfully with completely no isotope fractionation. Full automation and switching makes isoprime precisION the most dynamic and flexible stable isotope mass spectrometer ever built.
Conversion of bulk inorganics and organic in liquid and solid sample matrices to pure gases before isotope analysis.
Column separation of intricate organic mixtures using GC & LC methods and converted in real time to sample gases.
Preparation, separation and analysis of air, liquid, breath and carbonate samples prepared into septum sealed vials.
Concentration and separation of a range of gaseous sample types before isotope analysis.
