Kiel IV Carbonate Device Thermo Scientific™

Achieve highly sensitive, ultra-precise isotopic measurements in an automated, high-throughput workflow with the Thermo Scientific™ Kiel IV Carbonate Device. This device, when coupled to a& Thermo Scientific™ Delta V™ isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS), enables analysis of carbonate samples during paleoclimatic reconstructions involving biogenic carbonates such as foraminifera, bivalves, brachiopods, otoliths, and corals. Other applicable fields of study include analysis of growth zones of individual organisms or microfossils from drill cores.

ConFlo IV Universal Continuous Flow Interface Thermo Scientific™

Expand applications and automation of the stable isotope laboratory with the Thermo Scientific™ ConFlo IV universal continuous flow interface. The ConFlo IV system enables attachment of sample preparation devices that dramatically expand the range of experiments that can be conducted by stable isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS). It includes intelligent connection to all necessary reference gases, automatic sample-size recognition, sample and reference signal matching, and self-diagnosis.

PreCon Automated Trace Gas Pre-Concentrator Thermo Scientific™

Solve the problem of large trace gas sample sizes in gas isotope ratio MS with the Thermo Scientific™ PreCon automated trace gas pre-concentrator.  Isotope ratio analysis of trace gases such as atmospheric N2O or CH4 can be hampered by the need for very large sample volumes. For example, 13C/12C measurement of CH4 can require 70L of air. The PreCon automated trace gas pre-concentrator reduces sample volume by up to three orders of magnitude and improves sample throughput by at least one order of magnitude.
