The Microwave Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometer 4100 MP-AES, by Agilent Technologies, is coupled with an Agilent 4107 Nitrogen Generator (N2>99.5%) to generate a magnetically-excited nitrogen plasma, works in the wavelength range 178-780nm and can mount a cyclonic nebulizing chamber or a Multi-mode Sample Introduction System (MSIS) for hydrade generation. 

Dionex Ion Chromatographer ICS900, by Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., connected to a AS-DV autosampler is used for the analysis of cations (IonPac CS12A+CCRS500) and anions (IonPac AS9-HC+MMS300). 

Thermo Fisher Scientific Flash2000 Elemental Analyzer allows for the quantitative determination (%) of Carbon, Nitrogen, Hydrogen and Sulphur by combustion.  

ConFlo IV interface allows connecting the Elemental Analyzer to the isotope ratio mass spectrometer, in order to perform simultaneous quantitative and isotopic analyses.
