Arrival of the Nu TIMS!

October 28, 2014

PCIGR is pleased to have received the first commercially-available TIMS (thermal ionization mass spectrometer) produced by Nu Instruments. The TIMS has been developed using Nu’s field-proven variable dispersion multi-collector technology to improve the versatility and overall performance of this long established analytical technique.

A team from Bird Construction, along with PCIGR staff and Nu Instruments engineers, carefully unloaded and unpacked the crates. Over the next 3 weeks, the Nu engineers and PCIGR staff will be working hard to install and test the instrument.
