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 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 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 ISOTOPE cube
The vario ISOTOPE cube provides market-leading accuracy and precision in EA-IRMS analysis combined with outstanding flexibility and superior ease of use. The instrument can determine samples with even the most challenging C / N and C / S elemental ratios of up to 7000:1 and 5000:1, respectively. This can be achieved thanks to the Advanced Purge and Trap technology provided exclusively by Elementar.
The large dynamic range of the vario ISOTOPE cube allows measurement of samples in the low microgram as well as in the two-digit milligram range. The possible applications range from testing pure organic material (e. g. charcoal) to sediments with only trace amounts of organic material
The vario ISOTOPE cube is optimized to significantly simplify daily routine operation. Clearly arranged, easily accessible system components as well as a furnace that slides out minimize maintenance efforts. The tool-free clamp connection system ensures a reliably leak-tight instrument at any time.
Add Compound Specific Isotope Analysis
With compound specific isotope analysis, it becomes possible to analyse complex organic mixtures for samples such as olive oils, flavour compounds and other ingredients. By investigating at a compound specific level it becomes possible to determine comprehensive isotope fingerprints of your samples, making it possible to detect sophisticated fraudulent activity. As a VAR Partner of Agilent Technologies you can be sure that you have the highest performing GC system with extremely high sensitivity and precision for your most challenging samples.
Get combined elemental analysis and isotope ratios
With the BiovisION 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 the instrument for the highest performance.
Generate the fastest multi-elemental isotopic fingerprint
The vario ISOTOPE cube takes full advantage of the Advanced Purge & Trap technology employed in the Elementar range of elemental analyzers. This unique technology provides exceptional capabilities for separating and controlling analytical gases. From this capability, the vario ISOTOPE cube is able to generate the fastest multi-elemental isotopic fingerprint by analyzing C, N, H & S isotopes from a single sample. This delivers the highest possible sample throughput, allowing you to generate more data even quicker.
Analyze liquid samples
Premium alcoholic drinks such as whiskey and vodka can be directly analysed for their 13C isotope signature using the vario LIQUID sampler (VLS) which is a fully automated injection system for the vario ISOTOPE cube EA system. The VLS can also be used to anlayze 18O and 2H isotopes of rainwater and groundwater which can then be used to develop an "isoscape" allowing geographic point of origin studies.
