We provide analytical support for isotopic and geochemical research to external parties such as university scientists, government agencies, private enterprises, and other members of the international research community.
Various analytical techniques are offered in our laboratory (e.g. MC-ICP-MS for isotopic analyses and Quadrupole-MS for trace element analyses).
Analysis of elemental concentration by quadripole ICP-MS
Dissolution can be done either by acid digestion or alkaline fusion.
Please contact Dr. Vinciane Debaille for further inquiries.
Analysis of isotopic compositions by MC-ICP-MS of Pb, Nd, Hf, Cu, Zn, Fe
Instrumentation: Nu Plasma I MC-ICP-MS with HR capability, Nu Plasma II MC-ICP-MS with HR capability. Introduction systems: APEX, Cetac Aridus II, Nu Instruments DSN-100 desolvating nebulizer. Measurements can be performed in wet plasma mode and in dry plasma mode.
Our pricing per sample is available upon request. Rates are broken down into sample preparation step (leaching, dissolution, purification) fees and analysis fees. The following elements are available in our laboratory: Pb, Sr, Nd, Hf, Fe, Cu, Zn.
For all further inquiries please contact Dr. Nadine Mattielli. In order to provide you with the best service possible, please do not send your samples before consultation with us.
