The IsoTrace (ISOTope and Rare Atom Counting
Equipment) Laboratory is a multi-disciplinary centre, established at the
University of Toronto, for research in the ultra-high sensitivity analysis of
materials using Accelerator Mass
Spectrometry (AMS), and for the development of new apparatus and
procedures for use in this field.
As a national facility, IsoTrace makes the
results of this research and development available as analytical services to
a wide range of academic, government, industrial and commercial researchers,
in fields such as archaeology, biology, chemistry, earth and environmental
science, materials analysis, medicine and physics.
With the funding of the new
Canadian Centre for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry
at the University of Ottawa by the Canada Foundation for Innovation,
IsoTrace is now operated by the University of Ottawa in collaboration with the
University of Toronto. As the design and development of the new facility
proceeds, we will be updating this site on a regular basis.
