Join our IRMS User Meeting

September 10 - 11, 2024 / Manchester, UK

Our IRMS User meeting is a collaborative event to discuss stable isotope analysis and instrumentation. We will provide a space to foster new ideas, assist with optimising instrument setup, and advise on maximising data quality.

The event is free and open to anyone who uses or might use stable isotope analyzers, but is only available for a limited number of participants. Early-career researchers, students and users from under-represented groups are encouraged to attend.

We will shortly be announcing the keynote speakers, but we’re also keen to hear from researchers who may want to present their work. If you are interested in speaking, please let us know using the contact form below, or contact us at

The full programme will be announced in the coming months, including presentations from IRMS users showcasing their research, and from our team of specialists. In the meantime, you can sign up using the form below. We look forward to seeing you there!



Keynote Speaker:

Prof. Chris Harrod
Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment, University of Glasgow 

"Using stable isotopes as tools to solve the Rumsfeld matrix in ecology."

Keynote Speaker:

Prof. Rich Pancost
Dept. of Earth Sciences, University of Bristol

"Expanding the GC-IRMS analytical window to higher temperatures and more complex biomolecules."

Registration until September 1st, 2024.

Invitation to present

We would be very pleased if you shared your knowledge and valuable experience with colleagues. We'd like to invite all who wish to do so to present their research; please indicate your intention and a title or abstract when registering.
