What New Methods to Measure Isotope Ratios Can Reveal About the Environment, Humans, and the Earth
Multiple-collector inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) has some specific advantages over traditional ICP-MS instruments. Because of its ability to measure high-precision isotope ratios, MC-ICP-MS shows promise for applications as diverse as tracing the transport of heavy metals into bivalves (oysters and mussels), studying isotopic variations of metals in the human body, and identifying the source of volcanoes. Spectroscopy recently spoke with Dominique Weis, PhD, a Canadian Research Chair, Tier I, and Director at the Pacific Centre for Isotopic and Geochemical Research (PCIGR), in the Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia, about her research on this technique.
