The Finnigan DELTAplusAdvantage is the economical stable isotope ratio MS for all dual-inlet and continuous-flow applications not requiring continuous-flow D/H capability. It is fully automated, very sensitive and has an amplifier dynamic range.
The Stable Isotope Engine
The DELTAplus Advantage builds on the proven robustness and performance of the DELTAplus, while adding new capabilities through completely new electronics and full software integration. The key features of the new electronics include extended dynamic range signals (up to 50 V), variable amplification ranges by computer control and computer control of ionsource potentials and system parameters.
The DELTAplus Advantage is a universal tool for isotope ratio determination like 13C/12C, 15N/14N, 18O/16O, 34S/32S in dual inlet and continuous flow modes. D/H determination is available in dual inlet mode.
The modular design of the DELTAplus Advantage provides a flexible and open platform for the connection of inlet systems and preparation devices.
Full integration of the ISODAT 2.0 gas isotope software package enables easy set up, tuning and automatic operation of the DELTAplus Advantage.
The powerful ISODAT 2.0 script language ISL provides access to all processes and allows modification of supplied scripts as well as development of entirely new measurement and evaluation protocols.
