Technology and Apparatus
Analytical work at GeoTarget Solutions Inc. is conducted in ultra clean, low blank laboratories using cutting edge-techniques and state-of-the-art-equipment that assures customer satisfaction. Minute-by-minute equipment calibration is a key in obtaining most accurate and highly precise geochemical and (thermo)geochronological data at ultra low limits of detection. All of our analytical measurements are standardised using internationally calibrated standard materials. With us, only the highest quality results count.
Geochronology and Thermochronology
Laser Ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS),
for rapid U-Pb dating of zircon, baddeleyite, monazite and titanite (precision better than 2%).
Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometry (TIMS), for ultra-precise U-Pb geochronological information (precision better than 0.02%).
Ar-Ar mass spectrometry, for dating and determining the thermal histories of a wide range of magmatic, authigenic and detrital minerals.
Fission-track and (U-Th)/He analysis, for determining precise and accurate thermal,
burial and exhumation histories of sedimentary, magmatic and metamorphic rocks within the upper 8km of the crust.
