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 as low as 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.

Monitoring volcanic emissions to better predict eruptions

Studying volcanic emissions enables volcanologists to better predict volcanic patterns and eruptions. With the Delta Ray spectrometer, volcanologists such as Andrea Rizzo who is studying Mt. Etna can for the first time ever conduct continuous measurement of isotope ratio values from carbon dioxide in ambient air. The ability to transport the system in the field—such as the summit of a volcano—enables scientists to collect as many data points as one per second, 24/7.
