The Thermo Scientific GC IsoLink makes isotope ratio monitoring GC/MS (irm-GC/MS) as easy to perform as GC/MS. Scientists, lab managers, and operators can now routinely use isotope analysis to unravel unique information about the history and origin of compounds separated by gas chromatography (GC).
Users benefit from the GC IsoLink’s fully automated coupling of GC to Isotope Ratio MS. The new solution incorporates all conversion techniques for carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen compound-specific isotope analysis. GC/MS users can now utilize irm-GC/MS analysis to discover information about their samples that was previously inaccessible by any other technique. While common GC/MS provides structural information and compound quantification, irm-GC/MS reveals the history and origin of compounds by reading their isotopic signature with ultra-high precision.
