The Mass Spectrometer Analytical Facility is a part of the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences, Brown University and is located in GeoChem building room GC-040 and GC-015. The Facility houses a Thermo Scientific Neptune Plus multi-collector ICP-MS, a Thermo Scientific X-series-2 ICP-MS, a Photon-Machines Analyte G2 laser ablation, and a trace-metal free clean lab built by Pico Trace.
This state-of-the-art facility invites users from around the globe who have diverse research interests. The mission of this facility is to help scientists with their cutting-edge research. Our goal is to provide the most precise and accurate isotopic compositions and trace element abundances for geological, biological, environmental, and materials research, as well as other related research fields. This facility could be available to establish and develop new analytical methods as well as routine analysis through possible collaboration.
