The PSI laboratory is equipped with a Thermo Scientific Delta V Plus gas isotope ratio mass spectrometer (GIRMS) that includes 3 Faraday cups for CNOS and H2 collectors. The interface consists of the Thermo Scientific Gas Bench II and sample preparation device, including a GC PAL autosampler, and a thermostated sample tray for 96 sample vials of 10 ml size each. The Delta V Plus IRMS is integrated with the peripheral Gas Bench II using the Isodat software suit.
