The Neptune MC-ICP-MS is designed for high-precision isotope ratio analyses of much of the periodic table, and has high mass resolution to resolve polyatomic interferences from the analytes of interest. The Neptune has a doubly focusing plasma source, which allows simultaneous multi-collection to obtain high precision isotope ratio measurements, and movable Faraday cups.
High-precision isotope ratio analyses of much of the periodic table with high mass resolution to resolve polyatomic interferences from the analytes of interest. Validated analytical techniques include radiogenic Sr and Pb isotope ratios, and mass dependent Ca, Cr, Fe, Ni, Cu, Zn, Rb, Sr, Mo, Cd, Re, Hg, and U. Other can be developed upon request.
