HPLC ION CHROMATOGRAPHY (METROHM mods. 881 Compact IC pro y 792 Basic IC)

Major inorganic ions in water can be analyzed with the current configuration:

  • Calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, lithium, ammonium, strontium
  • Fluoride, chloride, nitrite, bromide, nitrate, sulfate, phosphate, organic acids of low molecular weight (acetate, formate, ...)
  • With other configurations the equipment analyzes Si and other organic compounds (high p.m.).

The equipment has automatic samplers for 36 (cations) samples and 148 (anions).

CARBON ANALYZER (SHIMADZU mod. TOC-VCSN + TNM-1)

It allows to analyze:

  • Dissolved total carbon
  • Dissolved inorganic carbon
  • Dissolved organic carbon
  • Dissolved total nitrogen

The equipment has an automatic sampler for 68 samples.

WATER ISOTOPE ANALYZER (PICARRO mods. L2120i-CRS )

The equipment can analyze stable isotopes deuterium (δ2H) and oxygen-18 (δ18O). Also detects traces of methane (CH4) and organic pollution.

The equipment has an automatic sampler for 108 samples.

CARBON ISOTOPE ANALYZER (PICARRO mod. G1111i-CRDS + OI-A Aurora 1030)

It allows to analyze:

  • 13C dissolved inorganic carbon (δ13C-DIC)
  • 13C dissolved organic carbon (δ13C-TOC)
  • 13C of solids (sediments, soil, plants,…)
  • 13C air CO2

The equipment has an automatic sampler for 68 samples.

SPECTROFLUOROMETER (PERKIN ELMER LS-55)

It allows to analyze:

  • Intrinsic fluorescence of dissolved organic matter
  • Dye tracers (artificial fluorescence)
