Latest innovations

New! XHR option for MC-ICP-MS

The Thermo Scientific Neptune Plus MC-ICP-MS is optimized for the best transmission. The most challenging interferences to resolve are from hydrides, and these can affect high-precision isotope ratio measurements of Si, Mg and K for example. The new XHR option is optimized for resolving these interferences, and achieves an impressive 15,000 resolving power. Combined with the peak position and mass bias stability that you expect from the MC-ICP-MS, you can now make more accurate and precise measurements. Speak with our experts to learn more about this exciting new technology.

Thermo Scientific 1013 ohm amplifier technology is now more accessible. Speak to our experts about our innovative new solutions for gain calibration and tau correction, and hear about the scientific research that 1013 ohm amplifier technology enables. It addresses analytical challenges with respect to limited sample amounts and minor isotopes; delivering precision that is not possible with conventional amplifiers and ion counters. Application areas include clumped isotopes, non-traditional stable isotopes, cosmochemistry and radiogenic isotopic systems.

New! Comprehensive solutions for isotopes in carbonates and DIC

Thermo Fisher Scientific is offering a new comprehensive solution for measurements of C and O isotopes in in carbonates and DIC. With our new technology bundle, you are now able to measure samples in the lab and in the field. The mobile and reliable isotope ratio infrared spectrometry (IRIS) enables onsite measurements of carbonates wherever you go, i.e. in caves as well as on ships. The IRIS will provide you with field data on DIC and bulk carbonates. Together with the lab-based IRMS and carbonate device you receive a complete solution ranging from smallest carbonate samples in the lab to carbonate isotope ratio screening in the field.

Visit us at the booth to find out more about our new attractive instruments bundles.

Products at booth

Get a dedicated XRD instrument designed for QA/QC, academic, and routine X-ray diffraction applications with the compact, affordable ARL EQUINOX 100 X-ray Diffractometer. Occupying a third of the space of a conventional diffractometer, this stand alone, transportable bench top instrument offers true flexibility; no external water cooling is required, and it plugs into a standard electrical power outlet. This instrument simplifies operation without sacrificing speed or performance. Measurements are completed in seconds and operating conditions are saved in the software.

Discover a new and exciting solution that extends the continuous measurement of isotope ratios and concentrations of CO2 in air to discrete samples such as head space analysis or direct injection of small amounts of CO2. Utilizing state of the art mid-infrared spectroscopy, the simultaneous determination of δ13C and δ18O empowers scientists to make profound scientific discoveries in a wide variety of research fields requiring analysis of discrete samples such as water/aquifer research, paleoclimate research and microbiology.
