Thermo FLASH 2000 model combustion Elemental Analyzer (EA)*

This instrument measures total C (TC) and total N (TN) analysis of organic solids (soils, plants, etc.) It is equipped with an autosampler for samples packed into tin or silver capsules. Samples can be prepared via ball-mill grinding if they are not submitted finely-ground. Pre-analysis sample acidification is also available for TOC analysis of organic solids.

Analyses supported: TC, TN, TOC

Samples accepted: Finely-ground solids.

Typical concentration range: 0.01 – 100 % C or N. Please inquire with the lab for detection limits specific to your method.

*NRAL accesses SIFER (Stable Isotope Facility for Ecosystem Research) equipment to provide service analysis of stable isotopes.
