Support and services available to external academic institutions and organisations as well as Griffith University students and researchers
The Stable Isotope Laboratory (SIL) at Griffith University provides services to the research community. This includes scientists and students at Griffith as well as other academic institutions and organisations both nationally and internationally in the areas of biogeochemistry, agronomy, ecology, geology, atmospheric science, microbiology and nutrition. Established in the 1990s, and located in the Australian Rivers Institute, Nathan Campus, the laboratory has strong connections with both industry and government combined with an outstanding record of academic research.
We pride ourselves on covering the complete cycle from preparation to analysis of the stable isotopes in geological and environmental samples.

iLab Self Help Centre
The self-help centre is the first stop for all users to access training, support and other advice to solve issues with accessing or using iLab. The site includes step by step guides, videos and support documents.
SIL provides routine δ 15N-nitrogen and δ 13C-carbon isotope analyses of solid materials, including soils, plant and animal tissues, using a Sercon Hydra 20-22 with a Europa EA-GSL sample preparation system.
In addition, our recently upgraded Europa Scientific Hydra 20-20 IRMS, has doubled our capacity to run samples and shorten turn-around times for data releases.
The lab also provides additional specialised services, such as δ34S-sulfur, δ15N nitrogen gas analysis, and liquid HD-hydrogen deuterium and/or 18O-oxygen. We also offer a range of sample preparation services, including drying, grinding and weighing, if required.
For specialised analyses, we recommend you contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your specific requirements.
