EA/GA-IRMS (Carlo Erba, Elementar, Finnigan, Isoprime)

Analyseur élémentaire

Crédits : Inra

Elemental analysers (EA) are connected to isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS) and dedicated to δ13C and δ15N analyses, together with total  C and N concentration, on plant materials, soils and gas samples, either at natural abundance or after isotope labelling (enriched samples).

Spectromètre de masse isotopique

Crédits : Inra

Pyr/EAHT-IRMS (Eurovector, Elementar, Isoprime)

Couple ea pyrolyseur

Crédits : Inra

A pyrolyser and a high temperature elemental analyser are connected to an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS) and dedicated to δ18O and δD analyses on organic matter and water samples, either at natural abundance or after isotope labelling.

LC/GC-IRMS (Dionex, Agilent, Isoprime)

Chromatographie couplage

Crédits : Inra

A liquid chromatrography (LC) or a gas chromatography (GC)  are connected to an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS) and dedicated to specific compound isotope analysis (δ13C and δ15N in sugars, amino acids …) in liquid samples, either at natural abundance or after isotope labelling (enriched samples).

TGA100A (Campbell Scientific)

TDLAS

Crédits : Inra

The Trace Gas Analyser is dedicated to the measurement of the concentrations of CO2 isotopologues in an air flux using tunable-diode laser absorption spectroscopy (TDLAS).

Cryoextraction line

Cryoextraction

Crédits : Inra

Cryogenic distilation under vacuum for extracting water from plant and soil samples prior isotope analysis.

Microbalances

DSC01016 [1600x1200]

Crédits : Inra

Four microbalances are available for weighting very small amounts of ground plant or soil samples prior isotope analyses.
