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 is a fundamental tool for environmental forensics. The analysis of low concentration harmful compounds such as BTEX in the environment is challenging but EnvirovisION offers exceptional ease of use with the highest levels of detection. EnvirovisION is equipped with a Programmable Temperature Vaporisation (PTV) injector and a CTC autosampler for performing Solid Phase Micro Extraction of low level volatile compounds in various samples for δ13C and δ2H isotope analysis. 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 stable isotope system for your research.
Identify Compounds with GC-MS
Where stable isotope analysis could offer crucial evidence against environmental polluters, it is essential that the your data stands up to scrutiny. By adding the identification power of GC-MS to EnvirovisION, 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.
Water flows through an environment are a major driver for migration of organic pollutants through that environment. By analysing the δ18O and δ2H isotope ratios of groundwater, fluvial waters and soil pore waters it is possible to trace sinks and sources of water in the environment helping to constrain further contaminations of pristine environments. Adding the vario LIQUID sampler (VLS) provides fully automated, high throughput analysis of these samples.
Analyze Soils, Sediments & Tissues samples
In environmental forensics, the analysis of soil and sediment samples is useful as these are large reservoirs for contaminants. By adding the vario PYRO cube elemental analyzer δ13C, δ15N & δ34S isotope analysis of soil and sediment is made very simple as well as making it possible to analyze other organics such as plant and animal tissues as part of bio-accumulation studies of persistent organic pollutants.
