BiovisION is a complete solution for stable isotope-based food analysis, consisting of the following modules:
isoprime visION Stable Isotope Analyzer
Simplicity is what isoprime visION is about. Creating something simple seems, well, simple - but 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 as handling the monitoring and gas injections required for instrument performance-checking.
The great thing about centrION is that you don’t even know it’s there. Completely integrated into 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 can focus purely on their science.
ionOS BiovisION operating licence for acquisition and data processing
ionOS is the revolutionary new software for the isoprime visION stable isotope analyser. It works in concert with the isoprime visION and centrION to provide an unrivalled level of intelligent control.
Designed completely from the ground up with stable isotope analysis as the sole function, IonOS is the most sophisticated yet simple software suite ever created. Its 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.
GC5 & Agilent 7890B GC
Compound specific isotope analysis provides a deep level insight into sports doping, archaeology and forensic applications and is considered to be a crucial technique for many laboratories. The GC5 offers exceptional sensitivity for low concentration analytes whilst maintaining chromatographic integrity of sample peaks during compound conversion. As a VAR partner of Agilent Technologies, the GC5 system takes full advantage of the market leading Agilent 7890B GC system to create the highest performance GC-IRMS system for your research.
Add a Multi-Elemental Dimensions to your Analysis
By adding compound specific nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen isotope analysis to your system, you can benefit from additional discriminatory dimensions to determine the origin of your sample. For example, compound specific nitrogen isotope analysis can help provide crucial distinctions between sources of illicit drugs, allowing clandestine laboratories and trafficking routes to be discovered.
Complete your analysis with bulk isotopes
Bulk isotope analysis via elemental analysis is a highly complementary technique for AnthrovisION. By adding an elemental analyser, it is possible to analyze sulfur isotopes in archaeological bone collagen, organic and inorganic materials in forensic applications or to provide robust calibration of standards in an anti-doping laboratory. With a range of high performance elemental analyzers from Elementar, you can provide a complete stable isotope service to your customers.
Identify Compounds with GC-MS
Where stable isotope analysis could offer crucial evidence against criminal behaviour, it is essential that the your data stands up to scrutiny. By adding the identification power of GC-MS to the AnthrovisION, you can have ultimate confidence that the compounds of interest are correctly declared. By adding the market leading Agilent 5977A mass selective detector to your system, you are able to generate simultaneous identification and isotope ratio from a single injection, generating more data from every injection.
