PICARRO GAS ISOTOPIC ANALYZERS

Isotopic molecules

High precision isotope analyzers to measure and quantify stable isotope ratios resolving biochemical processes encoded in your sample (solid, liquid or gas).

Patented Picarro cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRDS) technology enables an effective measurement path length of up to 20 kilometers in a compact cavity (temperature and pressure controlled), providing exceptional precision & sensitivity in a small-footprint analyzer. The analyzer maintains high linearity, high precision, and high accuracy over a twofold dynamic range with minimal calibration required. The systems are suitable for field-based monitoring as well as laboratory application, and can be paired with a variety of peripherals to extend and expand functionality. Additionally to isotope ratios, the analyzer also reports gas concentrations.
