What is IRMS?
Isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS) is the study of natural and synthetic samples based on their isotope ratios. The isotope ratio of a material will vary depending on its source and origin as well as on processes that may occur during the lifetime of that material. While IRMS is widely used in Earth sciences to understand Earth’s geological history, it is also used in food authenticity, forensics, medical research, and antidoping testing.
We offer a comprehensive portfolio of isotope ratio mass spectrometers. With more than 70 years of experience building cutting edge analytic instrumentation, frequent new innovations across the portfolio, and a commitment to a sustainable future, our isotope ratio mass spectrometers are the obvious choice for your analytical needs.
Noble gas mass spectrometry
Select from our portfolio of noble gas mass spectrometers to obtain reliable analytical results in the fields of geochronology, dating, and thermochronology.
Extra High Resolution (XHR) option
Hydrides present the most challenging interferences to effectively resolve, and these interferences can affect high-precision isotope ratio measurements of silicon, magnesium, chlorine, and potassium, among other elements. The XHR option is optimized to resolve interferences introduced by hydrides and other compounds.
Amplify your precision with 1013 amplifier technology
Limited sample size? A frequent challenge is the analysis of small ion beams. The analytical precision of these studies is limited by the detection system of your mass spectrometer. Equipped with 1013 ohm amplifiers with a new resistor design, our spectrometers enable you to get faster response times and extremely low noise/signal characteristics.
Automate your research by managing instrument control, data acquisition, data processing, and report generation from one easy software platform with Thermo Scientific Qtegra Intelligent Scientific Data Solution (ISDS). Utilize this software with gas IRMS instruments, high resolution IRMS, and noble gas mass spectrometers.
IsoFootprint: Paving the way to sustainable isotope analysis
As global levels of atmospheric CO2 continue to increase, we need to be making positive steps forward to reduce our emissions and remove CO2 from the atmosphere. We are producing net zero inorganic mass spectrometry instruments, removing 100% of the CO2 emissions associated with our products and their supply chain through investment in high quality, durable carbon removal projects.
