Description

These instruments are used in a range of metabolic studies using stable isotopes (13C, 180 & Deuterium) and are capable at low levels of isotopic incorporation.

The section has 3 instruments:
◊ Thermo Delta V Advantage
◊ Thermo Delta Plus XL
◊ Elementar Precision and Isoflow

Established methods are routinely used with the opportunity to develop new techniques based on research demands
