ISC-Science produces Reference Materials (RM) of isotopically enriched compounds for Isotope Dilution and ICP-MS and/or GC-MS applications.
Isotopic abundance values are reported as percentage [amount fraction (*100), %] and concentration values as micrograms of cation per gram of solution (μg/g). According to ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025, the concentration value was determined by Gas Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) using a reference method in a single laboratory [Isotope Dilution Mass Spectrometry (IDMS)] and isotopic abundances were determined by measuring the isotope-amount ratios for all isotopes of the element by GC-MS using the enriched isotope as reference. The expanded uncertainty for each value was calculated as U = 2 · u, where k = 2 is the coverage factor for a 95% confidence interval and u is the combined standard uncertainty calculated according to ISO Guide 35. The value of u is intended to represent the combined effect of uncertainty components associated with IDMS determination, homogeneity and stability for concentration values and the GC-MS determination for abundance values.
Stability of this material is based upon rigorous long-term (storage conditions) and short-term (transport conditions) testing of the solution for the values according to ISO 17034 and ISO Guide 35. This testing includes, but is not limited to, the effect of temperature.

Our team has been working hard this past year and we are proud to announce that we will be moving to our new installations shortly. This will mean that we will be closed until mid january 2023. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but this move will be very beneficial for us as well as our customers, as it gives us the much needed space to grow our business and continue to meet and exceed all of our customer's expectations.
It’s been a pleasure to work with you this year. Our warmest wishes for a happy holiday season and all the best to you in the year to come!
Your ISC team.
