The next generation flow-through phase separation device has been installed! Cory Gross from Elemental Scientific, Inc. (ESI) helped OSU graduate student Jeremy Hoffman configure and test this latest development in flow-through sample analyses. The new instrument, based on the original concept of Klinkhammer and Haley (Marine Chemistry, 2002), represents the efforts of close collaboration between OSU and ESI over the past year. Jeremy Hoffman and Andy Ungerer will make initial use of this new equipment to sequentially dissolve foraminifera for climate change research, although we expect analyses of a broad range of samples will be on-line very soon!
The funding for this new device was made available to Marta Torres from OSU’s Research Office through a RERF award.
