Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
Used for the determination of major, minor, and trace element constituents in rock, mineral, and water samples.
Element 2 ICP-Mass Spectrometer
The Element-2 (Thermo-Finnigan) multi-resolution, single collector, magnetic sector plasma mass spectrometer is capable of operating at resolutions of >10,000 and is used for both in-situ and solution-based
Nu Plasma ICP-Mass Spectrometer
The Nu Plasma (Nu Instruments) is a double focusing plasma mass spectrometer equipped with 13 collectors in a configuration designed to optimize U-Pb geochronologic applications. The instrument is integrated with a New Wave UP-213 solid state laser ablation system for in-situ isotopic analyses.
