Arrival of the Nu-Instruments in the DSTE

February 2001 — Brussels

The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the Université Libre de Bruxelles has acquired a multi-collector ICP-MS (Nu 015), Nu-Instruments through a combination of FRFC, ARC and Lotto funding.

The instrument was delivered in early February and was producing numbers very soon after. It is now being used routinely for Hf, Pb and Si analyses.

Prior to installation, the instrument was carried up the stairs, which was a memorable event – see pictures.
