isoprime visION Stable Isotope Analyzer
Simplicity is what isoprime visION is about. Creating something simple seems, well, simple. 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 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 handling monitoring gas injection required for instrument performance checking.
The great thing about centrION is that you don’t even know it is there. Completely integrated in to the 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 able to focus on their science.
ionOS is the revolutionary new software for the isoprime visION stable isotope analyzer.
ionOS works in concert with the isoprime visION and centrION to provide an unrivalled level of intelligent control. Designed completely from ground up and with stable isotope analysis as the sole use, ionOS is the most sophisticated yet simple software ever created. It’s 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.
GC5 & Agilent 7890B GC
Compound specific isotope analysis is a fundamental tool for analysing complex samples for the determination of different flavour components into any type of food marix. The GC5 offers exceptional sensitivity for low concentration analytes whilst maintaining chromatographic integrity of sample peaks during compound conversion. The robust and long-lasting oxidation conditions in the conversion furnace means that flavour and fragrance compounds can be analyzed routinely. 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.
Identify Compounds with GC-MS
When running complex flavour samples, run times can extend up to 2-3 hours with 100's compounds eluting from the GC column. With this complexity, it is very difficult to confidently declare which compounds you are actually analyzing since the molecular structure of the compound is destroyed in the high temperature furnace of the IRMS-interface. By combining an Agilent 5975C MSD with AromavisION, a single sample injection can be performed resulting in both compound identification and isotope analysis saving large amounts of time through not performing two injections.
Analyze Bulk Isotopes of raw materials
Bulk isotope values from raw materials can give afast and first indication of the origin of the flavour and fragrance ingredients on arrival at the factory. This prescreening using a vario PYRO cube can give you the isotopic composition of all 5 elements CNSOH in a fast and easy way.
Automate sample preparation
The use of automated sample preparation such as SPME (Solid Phase Micro Extraction) and pyrolysis is possible through the use of dedicated autosampler modules suchs as offered by CTC analytics or Gerstel. We can supply AromavisION with a specialized autosampler allowing for the rapid, fully automated analysis of large numbers of samples, bringing high throughput and lower operating costs.
Analyze liquid samples
Premium alcoholic drinks such as whiskey and vodka can be directly analysed for their 13C isotope signature using the vario LIQUID sampler (VLS) which is a fully automated injection system for the vario PYRO cube system.
AromavisION is a complete solution for stable isotope analysis for Flavour and
Fragrance analysis and comprises of these modules:
