isoprime visION Stable Isotope Analyzer
Simplicity is what isoprime visION is about. Creating something simple seems, well, simple. In fact, simplicity can only be achieved once the fundamental requirements of our customers are understood. With this clarity, isoprime visION offers a completely new experience of stable isotope analysis. An experience where the user is free from the routine chores of maintenance allowing them to focus on the science, not the instrumentation.
isoprime visION offers exceptional bulk and compound specific isotope analysis through market leading technology from Elementar and Agilent Technologies. Harnessing this technical ability through the isoprime visION finally opens the power of stable isotopes to practically any laboratory.
centrION monitoring gas handling and inlet interface system
centrION is the powerful core of the isoprime visION system. With complete automation through digital control, centrION is the central interface for isoprime visION’s inlet systems as well handling monitoring gas injection required for instrument performance checking.
The great thing about centrION is that you don’t even know it is there. Completely integrated in to the isoprime visION footprint and handled intelligently by ionOS®, centrION works seamlessly to perform complicated tasks with incredible simplicity.
With centrION, users are finally released from the daily maintenance of their instrument and able to focus on their science.
ionOS Software for acquisition and data processing
ionOS is the revolutionary new software for the isoprime visION stable isotope analyzer.
ionOS works in concert with the isoprime visION and centrION to provide an unrivalled level of intelligent control. Designed completely from ground up and with stable isotope analysis as the sole use, ionOS is the most sophisticated yet simple software ever created. It’s clean user interface belies the level of sophistication within, giving users unrivalled capabilities to generate exceptional data with ease.
ionOS allows isoprime visION to reclaim responsibility for sample analysis from the user by offering incredible functionality both pre- and post-acquisition significantly reducing instrument contact time.
vario PYRO cube EA for N, C, S, O & H isotope analysis
High performance O and H isotope ratio analysis does not have to be complicated. The vario PYRO cube perfectly adapts to your analytical demands for high temperature EA-IRMS analysis. With our blank-free pyrolysis reactor and our patented backflush technology, you no longer have to worry about distortion of your analytical results through interfering gases.
The instrument can be operated in OH or in CNS mode giving you the all-in-one instrument solution for C, N, S, O and H isotope analysis. In addition, Elementar‘s Advanced Purge & Trap separation technology of the analysis gases results in a large dynamic measurement range – samples from the low microgram up to the two-digit milligram range can be analyzed.
The vario PYRO cube is characterized by a low consumption of consumables. The pyrolysis reactor can be used for several thousand samples. This reduces maintenance effort and increases the system uptime. In combination with a low carrier gas consumption, low operating costs are guaranteed.
Expand Your Research to Organic Geochemistry
Sometimes, working at the bulk isotope level does not give enough understanding of the intricate mechanisms that control many subtle processes that occur in the biosphere. In that case, utilizing compound specific isotope analysis can bring powerful understanding to many complex processes. Analysing sedimentary biomarkers, fatty acids and amino acids with the Agilent 7890B and GC5 system coupled to GeovisION gives you much greater possibilities to expand your research into new and exciting areas.
Get combined elemental analysis and isotope ratios
With GeovisION it is possible to achieve elemental composition data and isotopic ratio analysis from a single sample, giving you more data from your samples. High performance elemental composition analysis can only be achieved however when samples are accurately weighed prior to analysis. We can supply a 6 figure analytical microbalance with your instrument for the highest performance.
Probe Biogeochemical Systems with Enriched Isotopes
Stable isotopes can be used as a powerful, and more importantly safe way to investigate complex biogeochemical processes. By spiking an experimental system with an artificially high amount of minor isotopes the hidden mechanisms driving these processes can be elucidated. GeovisION can be used to simply analyse these large enrichments thanks to the powerful 100V amplifier, the largest amplifier for stable isotopes on the market.
