The lab also has two GCs for qualitative/quantitative analysis. These GCs are served by one autosampler (Gerstel MPS), which can do liquid and headspace analysis. Both GCs have a split/splitless detector. GC A has a flame ionization detector and an electron capture detector, and is used for liquid (e.g. FAMEs) and gas (e.g. N2O) samples. This GC also has a preparative fraction collector (Gerstel PFC), which is used to isolate compounds of interest for subsequent additional analysis, such as NMR or acceleration mass spectrometry for 14C. GC B is used for the analysis of permanent gases. This GC has a thermal conductivity detector and a flame ionization detector in series and is currently mainly used for CO2 and CH4.

Research Facility

Stable Isotope Lab - The Earth Resources, Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility - CREAIT Network
Memorial University
St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The TERRA Facility's Stable Isotope Lab operates two gas source isotope ratio mass spectrometers. Materials containing the elements of interest are converted to suitable gaseous forms and isotopic abundances are measured and compared with those of international standards.
