The Light Stable Isotope Mass Spec Lab in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Florida provides isotopic and elemental analysis on a large number of materials.  We analyze samples for scientists and students from a variety of departments at the University of Florida in addition to many US and international universities and institutions.

Isotopic services
δ18O and δ13C of calcite and aragonite (forams, ostracods, gastropods, bulk sediment)
δ18O and δ13C of enamel and apatite
δ18O and δD of water
δ15N and δ13C of organic matter (sediment, animal, plant)
δ13C of atmospheric gases
δ13C of water DIC
δ13C of specific compounds (alkanes, FAME’s, etc.)

Elemental and additional services
Percent C,N,H,S in solids (sediments, organics)
Percent calcium carbonate (sediments)
Total DIC (water)
Headspace CO2 analysis
Solvent extraction
Sediment processing (marine and lacustrine) and microfossil picking (forams ostracods, and gastropods)
