Missions & Values


We provide to our clients our best offering in quality, timely data and customer services in the areas of
• Geochronology
• Geochemical Fingerprinting
• Environmental Source Tracking
In doing so we help our clients drive great decisions and results.


We will provide a portfolio of specialty laboratory services to organizations across the globe who value high-quality, commercial-grade data.


Isobar Science, in collaboration with the University of Miami Neptune Isotope Laboratory, provides U-Th geochronometry and high-precision analysis of Sr, Nd, Hf, Pb, and B isotopes using isotope dilution and wet chemistry. The isotope measurement is conducted on multicollector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS) equipped with multiple peripherals including a laser ablation system.

We specialize in U-Th dating, 87Sr/86Sr isotopic analysis, and 11B and 87Sr/86Sr environmental source tracking. All sample preparation is carried out in one of several class-100 laminar flow hoods. Sample digestion and chromatography occurs in a clean-room enclosure within two class-100 trace metal workstations ensuring both the lowest possible blank and the highest level of safety. All acid consumables are pretreated through a sub-boiling distillation unit.

Analysis occurs on a ThermoFisher Neptune Plus high-performance Multi-Collector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS). Instrument frontends/peripherals include an Apex-Q + Spiro TMD desolvating Nebulizer, and a New Wave Excimer 193 nm Laser Ablation system. Additional on-site equipment includes a high purity water system, centrifuge, a muffle furnace, balance/microbalance, ultrasonicater, vortex mixer, drying units and AirClean workstations.
