Isotope ratio monitoring GC/MS

Tuesday, 01 July, 2008 | Supplied by: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The GC IsoLink makes isotope ratio monitoring GC/MS (irm-GC/MS) as easy to perform as GC/MS. Scientists, laboratory managers and operators can now routinely use isotope analysis to unravel unique information about the history and origin of compounds separated by gas chromatography (GC).

GC/MS users can use irm-GC/MS analysis to discover information about their samples that was previously inaccessible by other techniques. Chemical and physical processes can change the natural isotope compositions of organic compounds. While common GC/MS provides structural information and compound quantification, irm-GC/MS reveals the history and origin of compounds by reading their isotopic signature with ultra-high precision.

Users benefit from the GC IsoLink’s fully automated coupling of GC to isotope ratio MS. The solution incorporates all conversion techniques for carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen compound-specific isotope analysis. This significantly simplifies the instrumentation previously required.

The product is suitable for applications such as environmental research, paleogreochemistry, climatology, microbial ecology, forensics, food authentication and metabolomics.
