  • New frontiers with advanced gas analyzers for medical applications

    ETG-LGR instruments provide fast measurements of isotopic ratios (δ2H, δ17O, δ18O, δ13C) in blood, urine, plasma, saliva and breath. No longer limited by time consuming sample preparation, equilibration, or pre-concentration processes, fast and precise measurements may be obtained by untrained personnel in real time at a fraction of the cost. For example, traditional ...

  • New Innovations at AGU 2015 Extend the Boundaries of Isotope Analysis for Geosciences Research

    Scientists engaged in climate research, biochemistry, forensics and oil/gas exploration can now analyze the isotopic anatomy of molecules using a new high-resolution isotope ratio mass spectrometer. It enables scientists to access the direct conditions under which molecules were formed, transported, stored and degraded. Thermo Fisher Scientific will showcase this and other solutions this week at ...

  • Preliminary Stimulation Results

    Stimulation at the Newberry EGS injection well began on September 23, and continued for just over three weeks, wrapping up on October 15. We began stimulation with a step-rate injectivity test, reaching pressures as high as 2,800 psi at the wellhead. We continued to run the pumps at high pressures over most of the stimulation period, reducing the pressure when needed to replace leaky gaskets and ...
