Waikato Stable Isotope Unit
The Waikato Stable Isotope Unit provides internationally accredited measurements of the ratios of the stable isotopes of carbon, nitrogen and oxygen. The Unit has two automated Europa Scientific isotope ratio mass spectrometers connected to dry combustion analysers that can handle 150 samples per day. Service is provided for staff and students interested in tracing these isotopes in natural systems. Other services offered by the Unit are analyses of carbon and nitrogen content in plants, animals, soils, and water. Samples are received from laboratories around the world for both collaborative and commercial work.
