At PCIGR, the unique combination of analytical infrastructure, capabilities and expertise ensures that researchers can obtain accurate and precise analyses of radiogenic isotopes, heavy (transitional metal) and light stable isotopes, and trace elements in a wide array of geological, environmental, biological and archaeological materials. The facility benefits from a dedicated and highly qualified team of research associates, technicians and managers.

The technical team takes great pride in developing and maintaining the best possible analytical conditions and procedures. They work directly with our user community to design customized analytical solutions to meet their specific needs and challenges (e.g., small sample sizes, low- to ultra-low level analyses), while adhering to best practices in quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC).
