The fingerprint of stable isotopes, the ratio between stable isotopes in the same element.
Isotopic analysis to track the origin of Food
Food and beverage adulteration is becoming more common and affects a wide range of products. To safeguard food and beverage production, the global scientific community developed enhanced analytical methods to guard against falsification; isotopic analysis is one of these methods. Isotopic analysis is primarily used in the food and beverage area to detect adulteration and to control the origins of ingredients.
Thanks to this method a wide range of food products such as wine, olive oil, fruit juices, vanilla, honey and spirits can be tested for the presence of adulteration. Air Liquide offers isotopically characterised gases with high analytical accuracy, required compositions and targeted isotope signatures that improves the reliability of your isotopic analysis.
Exploitation and production of oil and gas
Isotopic analysis to support accurate exploration and production development planning.
Gas stable isotopes are used to help understand the mechanisms of formation and compositional evolution of gas accumulations on a geologic and production time scale used for petroleum system modeling and reservoir management. Isotopic analysis maximises information derived from each well, reservoir or field and assists in accurate exploration and production development planning. Air Liquide has developed a unique standard product range of multi-component, natural gas calibration mixtures up to C5 species with specific delta 13C and delta 2H ratios.
Stable Isotopes to support Breath Testing for fast, accurate and noninvasive testing of diseases
Breath testing is a growing application for fast, accurate and noninvasive testing of various diseases. Breath analyses based on Stable Isotope ratio of key molecules are being researched for non-invasive disease diagnosis and monitoring. Whether you are a clinical laboratory, testing laboratory or an OEM, Air Liquide provides a range of mixtures for equipment qualification, in order to obtain more accurate diagnostics.
