ALS Scandinavia offers cadmium isotope analysis of 114Cd and 110Cd. Analysis of cadmium isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:
- Pollution source tracing
- Exposure source tracing
The analysis of cadmium (Cd) isotope ratio is typically carried out by MC-ICP-SFMS (multicollector ICP-SFMS). ALS Scandinavia has developed a matrix separation method that can be applied on prior to analysis for significantly improved measurement uncertainty.
Research - Cadmium isotope analysis
Our isotope research is done in close co-operation with several external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology. Our research has resulted in the below publication(s) relating to cadmium isotope analysis:
- Cadmium isotope ratio measurements in environmental matrices by MC-ICP-MS
- Ranges of B, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb, Sr, Tl, and Zn Concentrations and Isotope Ratios in Environmental Matrices from an Urban Area
- Assessment of the natural variability of B, Cd, Cu, Fe, Pb, Sr, Tl and Zn concentrations and isotopic compositions in leaves, needles and mushrooms using single sample digestion and two-column matrix separation
