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).
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."
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."
"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."
"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."
Connected to the ThermoScientific Delta V GC/RMS. "GC-Isolink is used for compound-specific isotope measurements for carbon and hydrogen."
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."
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)."
"We can provide analysis on a variety of samples, some of which have included:
* bone collagen
* whale baleen
* algae & zooplankton
* soil & sediment
* whiskers & claws
* dissolved organic carbon (DOC) and dissolved organic nitrogen (DON)
* and practically anything else that was once living"
