ChiSIR (light stable isotopes) Albert Colman's stable isotope ratio mass spectrometers were setup in 2010 (thanks Burt and Ian from Thermo, Brian and the rest of the U of C gang for getting the renovations done, and U of C and the NSF forfunding), and real samples were being run in early 2011.  Albert Colman is now at Rice, but the instruments are still here.
This is mainly set up to be a facility for use by the University of Chicago community, but is available for other users and limited service runs.

Acknowledgements:  The purchases of the major pieces of equipment, mass spectrometers and peripherals, were supported by NSF award #0923831.  "This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5)."  And many thanks to the U of C for the needed renovations and added support for the laboratory.

Does anybody really know what time it is...
