IBEX Clumped Isotope System

The Isotopologue Batch Extraction system (IBEX) has been developed in conjunction with the Imperial College London carbonate group.


The system is designed to automate the process of carbonate sample preparation for analysis by a suitable isotope ratio mass spectrometer. The system is compatible with the Thermo 253
