Recovery of the instruments after 2016 big earthquake


On 21 of October 2016, a 6.6 magnitude Earthquake with an epicenter only about 4 km from the laboratory, hit the area causing an incalculable amout damages to our laboratory. The losses comprised physical damages to the bulding and specially to the biggest facilities within the laboratory provoking for hence a big economical losses and seriously affecting our scientific activity. Finally, we cab say that all the damaged facilities have been satisfactory recovered and even replaced by the new models of it.

Triton plus: A second Triton Plus has arrived to replace MAT-262. This highly precise intrumentation provides stable and high precision adquision of isotopic datae. The new hardware and new software will allow us a long-time adquision to see the subtle deviation on the natural processes, providing us a new chances and opening new frontiers on isotope research.

High-Performance Ion Source and Optics: The thermal ionization source of the Triton Plus has a very small kinetic energy spread (~0.5eV) such that a single focusing geometry focusing for angular divergence only is fully sufficient. The 10kV ion source acceleration potential provides optimum sensitivity and the ion optics of the Triton Plus have been optimized for maximum ion transmission for both single and double filament techniques. The sample turret holds 21 single or double filaments that can be easily exchanged without tools.

iCAP TQ ICP-MS: The new TQ ICP-MS contains multiple quadruples to suppress interference molecules so that it is posisble to determine major element abundances without additional usage of sector-type ICP-MS with high-mass resolution techniques. By the combination of the laser probe we epect the number of elements to be determined will be increased up to 50.

The redefining triple quadrupole ICP-MS with unique 1) ease of use: Harness the power of triple quadrupole technology with surprising ease of use. The 2) reaction finder: Simplified method development for the most challenging analytical applications. Also, 3) right first time: Accurate analysis and powerful interference removal – even in the toughest matrices. Morever 4) boundless capabilities: Push the boundaries of your research with ultralow detection limits and finally 5) new market opportunities :Future proof your laboratory and explore developing markets

IMS-1280: The new ion probe IMS-1280 with a larger magnet and can determine isotopes composition using multi-collectors. The bright ion source referred as RF gun is equipped the size of beam can be as small as 1/10 than before. The machine has scanning ion imaging capability; we expect to have an ion images with resolution down to less than a micron.

A unique combination of High Reproducibility at High spatial Resolution and High mass Resolution: With the new IMS 1300-HR³, CAMECA greatly improves the performance of its large geometry SIMS, already a market leader, and now offers the geoscience community a unique combination of High Reproducibility at High spatial Resolution and High mass Resolution.The tool addresses the growing demand for small scale, in situ isotopic measurements at high precision and productivity, opening a wide range of research directions, from stable isotopes, geochronology and trace elements to small particles and beyond.
