rhenium isotope analysis

Rhenium isotope analysis

ALS Scandinavia offers rhenium isotope analysis of 185Re and 187Re. Analysis of rhenium isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:

  • Dating
  • Geology
  • Isotope geochemistry
  • Petrology

The analysis of rhenium (Re) 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.

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.
