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 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 - Rhenium 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 rhenium isotope analysis:

  • Simplified method for the Re-Os dating of molybdenite using acid digestion and isotope dilution
