Isotope Ratio Infrared Spectrometry (IRIS)
Taking isotope analysis to a new level of ease while making profound scientific discoveries
Utilize state-of-the-art mid-infrared spectroscopy with the Thermo Scientific™ Delta Ray™ Isotope Ratio Infrared Spectrometer (IRIS), which enables the simultaneous determination of δ13C and δ18O of CO2 at ambient concentrations with a precision better than 0.05 ‰. This CO2 isotope ratio analyzer empowers you to make profound scientific discoveries in a wide variety of research fields like greenhouse gas monitoring, ecology and plant science, volcano monitoring, carbon storage and sequestration.
Expand your analytical capabilities with IRIS
Extend the continuous measurement of isotope ratios and concentrations of CO2 in air to discrete samples such as head space analysis or direct injection of μg amounts of CO2, such as in vials, syringes or bags.
Isotope ratios to-go
Enjoy IRIS' great flexibility and ease-of-use. Perform real-time measurements of elemental and isotope composition of CO2 such as in volcanic gases with the field deployable Delta Ray Isotope Ratio Infrared Spectrometer and expand your scientific discoveries, from greenhouse gas monitoring, ecology and plant science, to volcano monitoring, carbon storage and sequestration
δ13C values of CO2 are fast indicators of water-use efficiency (WUE) and plant response to drought. Determine δ13C photosynthetic discrimination of crop plants - instantly. Shorten research time to develop the top seed for a perfect plant. Reduce time for perfect seed production, that will bring the best crop to the market.
