Equipment

UHPLC UltiMate 3000 with UV/VIS and Fluorescence detector 

Our UHPLC (ultra high performance liquid chromatography) does any number of jobs. We use it for the concentration analysis of organic molecules such as organic acids, but also the separation of these compounds for off-line compound specific isotope

Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer (IRMS) 

The Delta V+ IRMS measures the stable isotopes of carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. Samples can be introduced through a GC IsoLink II  or a GasBench peripheral

Freeze dry system 

Our freeze dry system operates off an oil-free scroll pump to minimize cross contamination from vacuum pump oil

Deep sea water samplers 

Our two water sampling systems are designed to collect water from deep-sea hydrothermal vents. The Hydrothermal Organic Geochemistry (HOG) sampler is designed to be mounted on an ROV or other submersible and collect large volumes (2 - 10 L) of water and filters. A second sampler is designed as a mooring to collect samples over a period of time.
