Equipment



PerkinElmer ELAN DRC II ICP-MS
Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry combines the efficient ionization of a high-temperature argon plasma to the rapid scanning, high sensitivity and good resolution capabilities of a quadruple mass spectrometer. The technique can produce high quality concentration data for a large number of elements using an appropriate range of sample weights. Isotope ratios can be measured by ICPMS with sufficient precision for certain applications such as environmental lead source tracing. Isotope dilution may be used to determine concentrations of "difficult" or low-abundance elements.

Research Facility



The Earth Resources, Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility
Memorial University
St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador (NL)

The Earth Resources Research and Analysis (TERRA) Facility is housed in the Department of Earth Sciences. TERRA provides chemical and physical analyses utilizing a large variety of instrumentation. Most laboratories have standard fee-for-service packages that are offered to the geological, archaelogical, environmental and biological communities. Research into new applications and techniques is on-going.
