August 2017 – Investigating Authenticity and Tracing Origin with Isotope Fingerprints

Samples have an isotope fingerprint, a unique chemical signature that allows their history to be identified. To visualize this fingerprint, isotope ratio mass spectrometry is used. IRMS traces carbon, nitrogen, sulfur, oxygen, and hydrogen isotopes by detecting their natural variations, revealing the origin and history of samples. Capture your samples’ stories with Thermo Scientific’s portfolio of isotope ratio mass spectrometers.

Our instrumentation helps you answering questions such as: Where does your roasted coffee come from? Is it shark liver oil or olive oil in your skin care cosmetics? Where does your sugar come from? Are your tomatoes organic?  And many more…
