Zinc isotope analysis
ALS Scandinavia offers zinc isotope analysis test of 64Zn, 66Zn and 68Zn. Analysis of zinc isotope ratios is useful in a variety of fields including:
- Pollution source tracing
- Exposure source tracing
The analysis test of zinc (Zn) isotopes is traditionally 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.
We develop our isotope research in close co-operation with external institutions, particularly the Divisions of Applied Geology and Chemistry at Luleå University of Technology. The research has resulted in serveral publications in the scientific literature. For more information please see isotope research.
