    Description

    Costech 4100 Elemental Analyzer attached to a Finnigan MAT 252 Mass Spectrometer via a Thermo Conflo III Interface

    The Costech EA/MAT 252 is used to measure elemental and isotopic composition of solid samples containing C and N. Our analysts can measure elemental and isotopic composition with weight % greater than 0.1% C or N. In most cases we can measure for C and N in a single sample. We are in the process of developing techniques to measure both 34/32S as well as 33/32S with a new collector array on solid samples. Check back for progress update.
