Waikato Stable Isotope Unit (WSIU)

The Waikato Stable Isotope Unit provides International Atomic Energy Agency accredited measurements of the ratios of the stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen. The Unit has two automated isotope ratio mass spectrometers connected to dry combustion analysers that can handle 150 samples per day. Service is provided for staff, students and external users interested in tracing these isotopes in natural systems. The Unit also offers analyses of carbon and nitrogen content in plants, animals, soils, and water. Samples are received from laboratories in New Zealand and around the world for both collaborative and commercial work.
