STABLE ISOTOPE LABORATORY
The University of Michigan Stable Isotope Laboratory
is located in the Department of Geological Sciences. The laboratory
provides analytical support for researchers both university-wide and from
universities and facilities around the world. We specialize in the
preparation and analysis of light stable isotopes (Hydrogen,Carbon, and

Kiel automated preparation device. This device is dedicated to the
analysis of carbonates and has the capability to analyze samples as small
as 10 micrograms.
