Iron isotope analysis

IRon isotope analysis

ALS Scandinavia offers iron isotope analysis of 54Fe, 57Fe and 56Fe. Analysis of iron isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:

  • Geology
  • Pollution source tracing
  • Exposure source tracing
  • Biochemistry
  • Isotope geochemistry

The analysis of iron (Fe) isotopes is primarily 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.

Please see ICP laboratory and analytical methods for more information.

Isotope Research

ALS Scandinavia also develope research on isotopes in close collaboration with several external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology. The research has resulted in a number of publications in the scientific literature. Please read more here about our isotope research.
