Copper isotope analysis
ALS Scandinavia offers copper isotope analysis of 63Cu and 65Cu. Analysis of copper isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:
- Pollution source tracing
- Exposure source tracing
- Isotope geochemistry
The analysis of copper (Cu) isotopes 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.
The 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. It has resulted in a number of publications in the scientific literature. Please follow the link for more information about our isotope research.
