AnthrovisION is a complete solution for stable isotope analysis in sports science, criminal forensics and archaeology, consisting of the following modules:
isoprime visION stable isotope analyzer:
Simplicity is what isoprime visION is about. Creating something simple seems, well, simple - but in fact, simplicity can only be achieved once the fundamental requirements of our customers are understood. With this clarity, isoprime visION offers a completely new experience of stable isotope analysis: an experience where the user is free from the routine chores of maintenance, allowing them to focus on the science, not the instrumentation.
isoprime visION offers exceptional bulk and compound-specific isotope analysis through market-leading technology from Elementar and Agilent Technologies. Harnessing this technical ability through the isoprime visION finally opens the power of stable isotopes to practically any laboratory.
centrION monitoring gas handling and inlet interface system
centrION is the powerful core of the isoprime visION system. With complete automation through digital control, centrION is the central interface for isoprime visION’s inlet systems, as well as handling the monitoring and gas injections required for instrument performance-checking.
The great thing about centrION is that you don’t even know it’s there. Completely integrated into the isoprime visION footprint and handled intelligently by ionOS®, centrION works seamlessly to perform complicated tasks with incredible simplicity.
With centrION, users are finally released from the daily maintenance of their instrument and can focus purely on their science.
ionOS® AnthrovisION operating license for acquisition and data processing
ionOS is the revolutionary new software for the isoprime visION stable isotope analyzer. It works in concert with the isoprime visION and centrION to provide an unrivalled level of intelligent control.
Designed completely from the ground up with stable isotope analysis as the sole function, ionOS is the most sophisticated yet simple software suite ever created. Its clean user interface belies the level of sophistication within, giving users unrivalled capabilities to generate exceptional data with ease.
ionOS allows isoprime visION to reclaim responsibility for sample analysis from the user by offering incredible functionality both pre and post-acquisition, significantly reducing instrument contact time.
Agilent 7890B GC with GC5 furnace for δ13C isotope analysis:
Compound-specific isotope analysis provides a deep-level insight into sports doping, archaeology and forensic applications, and is considered to be a crucial technique for many laboratories. The GC5 offers exceptional sensitivity for low-concentration analytes, while also maintaining the chromatographic integrity of sample peaks during compound conversion.
As a VAR partner of Agilent Technologies, the GC5 system takes full advantage of the market-leading Agilent 7890B GC system to create the highest-performance GC-IRMS system for your research.
In addition to these four core components, the AnthrovisION solution also includes an Agilent 7693 autosampler turret for up to 16 samples.
By adding compound-specific nitrogen, hydrogen and oxygen isotope analysis to your system, you can benefit from additional discriminatory dimensions to determine the origin of your sample. For example, compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis can help provide crucial distinctions between sources of illicit drugs, allowing clandestine laboratories and trafficking routes to be discovered.
Bulk isotope analysis:
Bulk isotope analysis via elemental analysis is a highly complementary technique for AnthrovisION. By adding an elemental analyzer, it is possible to analyze sulfur isotopes in archaeological bone collagen and organic and inorganic materials in forensic applications, or to provide robust calibration of standards in an anti-doping laboratory.
With a range of high-performance elemental analyzers from Elementar, you can provide a complete stable isotope service to your customers.
GC-MS compound identification:
In cases where stable isotope analysis could offer crucial evidence of criminal behavior, it is essential that the data stands up to scrutiny. Adding the identification power of GC-MS to the AnthrovisION provides ultimate confidence that the compounds of interest have been correctly declared.
By adding the market-leading Agilent 5977A mass selective detector to the AnthrovisION system, researchers can simultaneously identify and determine the isotope ratio of a single injection, maximizing the amount of usable data generated.
