Research Facilities

The AGIR Platform's primary facility is the Picotrace ultra low particulate, metal-free clean laboratory for sample digestion and elemental purification. We also support and have access to optical microscopy and sample preparation facilities.

AGIR's instrumentation includes the Nu Plasma II multi-collector ICP-MS for high-precision isotope ratio measurements, Agilent 7900 quadrupole ICP-MS for determination of trace element abundances, Resonetics Resolution 193 nm laser coupled to either (or both) ICP-MS for in situ analysis, Bruker M4 Tornado micro-X-ray fluorescence spectrometer for 2D chemical mapping, and the JEOL electron microprobe for quantitative chemical WDS/EDS analysis.
