Alaska Stable Isotope Facility

Director: Wooller, Matthew

Summary:

The Alaska Stable Isotope Facility is a state-of-the-art laboratory conducting stable isotope analyses of wide range of sample types for researchers from all over Alaska, the USA and the globe. Sample types include organic samples (C, N, O and H isotopes), inorganic samples (e.g. carbonate for C and O) and water (O and H).

Instruments

  • Costech ECS4010 elemental analyzer ( Elemental analyzer )

    Interfaced to the Thermo Scientific Delta V-EA/RMS mass spectrometer via Conflo III system. "The EA is used for carbon nitrogen analysis of solid samples."

  • Thermo Scientific Delta V-EA/IRMS ( Continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometer )

    Linked to the Costech ECS4010 Elemental Analyzer via Conflo III system, and "used for carbon and nitrogen analysis of solids and liquids (e.g. soil, sediment, protein material and water) for oxygen and hydrogen stable isotopes."

  • Thermo Scientific Delta V-GCRMS ( Continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometer )

    "The Thermo Delta V-GCRMS is connected to a Thermo Trace GC IsoLink system via a Conflo IV interface. This system is capable of analyzing a wide variety of organic compound for carbon isotopes."

  • Thermo Scientific DeltaPlus XP ( Continuous flow isotope ratio mass spectrometer )

    "The Thermo DeltaPlus XP is connected to a Thermo TC/EA through a Conflo III interface. This system is used to analyze hydrogen and oxygen isotopes of both liquid and solid samples. The DeltaPlus XP is also connected to a Thermo GasBench II carbonate analyzer. The Gasbench II system is used in the analysis of oxygen and carbon stable isotopes of solid and liquid carbonates."

  • Thermo Scientific GC Isolink ( Gas chromatography equipment )

    Connected to the ThermoScientific Delta V GC/RMS. "GC-Isolink is used for compound-specific isotope measurements for carbon and hydrogen."

  • ThermoElectron GasBench II carbonate analyzer ( Chemistry analyzer )

    Interfaced to DeltaPlus XP mass spectrometer via Conflo III system. "The GasBench is used in the analysis of oxygen and carbon stable isotopes of liquid and solids."

  • ThermoElectron high temperature conversion elemental analyzer ( Elemental analyzer )

    Interfaced to the Thermo DeltaPlus XP mass spectrometer via Conflo III system. "One major advantage of the TC/EA system is that in dual element mode hydrogen and oxygen isotope data can be acquired very rapidly (<6 min/sample)."

Services

  • Stable isotope analysis service ( Material analysis service )

    "We can provide analysis on a variety of samples, some of which have included:

    * muscle
    * feathers
    * blood
    * bone collagen
    * whale baleen
    * algae & zooplankton
    * soil & sediment
    * whiskers & claws
    * dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and dissolved organic nitrogen (DON)
    * Water
    * vegetation
    * and practically anything else that was once living"
