Welcome to the home page of the Archaeology Isotope Laboratory at the Department of Archaeology, Simon Fraser University!

Our isotope lab consists of a sample preparation laboratory as well as two isotope ratio mass spectrometers for measurements of a wide range of archaeological, forensic and modern samples. For more information about our mass spectrometers and the elements that we measure please see our Equipment page.
