Center for analysis of mineral elements (CHIME)
At the Faculty of Science, inorganic atomic spectrometry based on LC-ICP-MS and ICP-OES is well established, and a laser ablation instrument with high spatial resolution (nm range) is being installed, hyphenated with ICP-MS, to image the multi-elemental composition of specific plant cell types. The laser ablation ICP-MS equipment was acquired in 2010 with funding from the national infrastructure grant. Also isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry (IR-MS) is operated for 15N, 13C and 18O analysis.
