Equipment full name: 
Combi PAL autosampler with Gas Bench Interface attached to a Thermo Delta V Mass Spectrometer

Address: 112 Research West

Decription:  Stable (C and O) isotope analyses of carbonates or other minerals containing CO3 can be measured with the Gas Bench Combi PAL. Additional C and O isotope analyses of CO2 in headspace or soil samples where [CO2] is greater than 2%. 

Carbonate Samples – Cost Per Sample – Cost is based on analysis of 3 samples per hour; * User Weighs Sample, **Lab Weighs Sample
