Thursday November 7


 Dear participants

We have an opportunity to learn more about the nanoSIMS 50L instrument housed in Göteborg/Chalmers. This instrument is a high-resolution nanometer scale secondary ion mass spectrometer that allows researchers to measure the elemental composition at a single cell level. It has been applied to a variety of fields, including microbial ecology. In combination with stable isotopic tracers (e.g. 13C and 15N substrates), it has proven to be a powerful method to e.g., quantify assimilation and transfer of reduced substrates (e.g. carbon and nitrogen) at a single cell level. Anna has used it in her research on Skeletonema resting stages in collaboration with Helle Ploug and their common students and colleagues (Doi:10.1111/1462-2920.14434). Two posters of Anna’s collaborative research will be presented at the conference.

We would like to know how many are interested to participate in the following:

1. Tuesday evening (18-19): Informal technical and introductory lecture on using nanoSIMS provided by Rachel Foster (SU) and Aurélien Thomen, the facility manager for the nanoSIMS 50L instrument housed at the Chemical Imaging Infrastructure.

2. Thursday afternoon -Tour of the nanoSIMS 50L instrument in Göteborg at 15:00. Transportation will be provided from Tjärnö to Göteborg. If you intend to sing up for the tour, your Full name as it appears on your ID will be required for clearance at facility. We additionally need this information no later than Oct 22.

Please contact Rachel Foster if you are interested: rachel.foster@su.se

NanoSIMS | Chalmers
The NanoSIMS 50L in Gothenburg is the first of these instruments in Scandinavia. A nanoSIMS offers μ g/g or better detection limits for most elements, essentially periodic table coverage, 50 nm imaging and depth profiling capabilities, and isotopic analyses of major and minor elements on a wide rang
