ALS Scandinavia is an isotope laboratory offering a wide range of isotope analysis. We offer analysis of more than 20 isotopic systems by two different high resolution ICP-MS techniques: high-resolution ICP-MS (ICP-SFMS) and multi-collector ICP-MS (MC-ICP-SFMS).
Having more than a decade of experience in isotope analysis, stable isotope testing, and by combining commercial testing with our own research in the field, means ALS Scandinavia is at the absolute forefront of isotopic ratio testing. We are the only commercial isotope laboratory offering isotope ratio analysis of heavy stable elements such as Si, Fe, Cu, Zn and Mo.
The isotopic composition of a certain element can be used as a fingerprint, providing valuable information on the processes that the element has undergone. Isotopic compositions vary and are affected by such things as the element source, weather, biological and biochemical processes or the geological age of a material. Consequently, there are many applications where an isotope laboratory analysis can be useful, for example: geology, geochronology, provenance studies and for tracing pollution and exposure sources.

Improved isotope testing capabilities
ALS has introduced a second MC-ICP-MS system to our instrument park. The instrument, Neptune Plus, is the latest generation and allows us to offer isotope analyses at even lower concentrations and with better precision than before. By combining commercial testing with a strong focus on research, ALS Scandinavia is taking the latest in isotope testing to our commercial clients worldwide.
