Stable Isotope Lab

The University of Arkansas Stable Isotope Lab was established in 2000 with funds from the National Science Foundation and the State of Arkansas. We have three isotope ratio mass spectrometers (one Delta XP and two Delta Plus IRMS systems) for stable isotope analysis allowing the capability to measure the C, N, O, or H isotope composition of trace gasses, solid, and liquid samples. To complement our compound-specific IRMS (Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry) work, we have an Agilent GC with a Quadrupole mass spectrometer for compound identification and quantification.
