The Las Vegas Isotope Science Laboratory (LVIS) is equipped with a state-of-the-art light stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS) and peripheral devices. The lab is located in room 3111 of the 208,000 ft2 Science and Engineering Building on the UNLV Campus that was completed in 2009.
The Nevada Isotope Geochronology Laboratory houses two rare gas mass spectrometers, a MAP215-50 and Nuclide 4.5-60-RSS. The MAP 215-50, its extraction line, and auxiliary equipment are computer automated using LABVIEW software, initially developed by Bruce Idleman at Lehigh University.Read more
NPFL hosts a ThermoFisher ScientificTM iCAP Q Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS). The wet chemistry lab is equipped with a Milli-Q® Integral Water Purification System, and a Savillex DST-1000 Acid Purification System. In Spring 2021, we have received and installed a ESI 193 nm Excimer NWR193 laser ablation system, which is coupled to the existing iCAPTM Qc ICP-MS. We have also received a Sapphire Multi-Collector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS).
