12 Chemistry laboratory High purity water system Analytical balances
Ovens Magnetic stirrers Professional furnaces Vacuum and pressure pumps Evaporators Microscopes Centrifuges Ultrasonic baths High pressure liquid chromatograph IWTA 2012

13 Graphitization system
AGE – 3 (Developed by Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) Fully automated graphitisation system that uses a molecular sieve trap instead a cryotrap to transfer theCO2 from sample combustion in an EA to the graphitisation reactors.* *L. Wacker, M. Nemec, J. Bourquin, Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research B 268 (2010) 931–934 IWTA 2012

14 3 MV Tandetron for IBA IWTA 2012

15 CONCLUSIONS The installation of the 1 MV Tandetron accelerator, along with the chemistry laboratory and the graphitization system, creates great opportunities for research using AMS techniques in various domains like medicine, archeology, geology, material science, pharmacology, environmental sciences, forensic investigations, nuclear physics and in many other fields of research.
