ID-TIMS U-Pb geochronology at the 0.1‰ level using 1013 Ω amplifiers


In high-precision isotope ratio measurements, counting statistics often results in the precision achieved being directly related to the number of counts detected. If the amount of sample available is finite, then the only way to measure isotope ratios more precisely is to increase the sensitivity of the mass spectrometer. However, many of the most popular methods to increase sensitivity can often come at a cost to stability. To take multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) technology further, Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the new Thermo Scientific™ Neoma™ MC-ICP-MS.

This webinar highlights our investigations into using the Neoma MC-ICP-MS with the wide variety of sample introduction used in MC-ICP-MS, such as desolvating nebulizer systems and laser ablation. Sensitivity and high precision isotope ratio measurements were made for elements across the periodic table, demonstrating that with the Neoma MC-ICP-MS, high-precision isotope ratio data is within the reach of every user.
