The C and N isotopic composition of gaseous samples at either natural abundance or enrichment levels ist determined.

Trace gases are collected in a Precon and reach the mass spectrometer via a gas chromatography system  and Conflo IV Interface. Furthermore, determination of the isotopic composition of N2O isotopomers in N2O and NO+ are simultaneously carried out.
