The Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry Laboratory was established in 2001, and is a component of the Division of Biology at Kansas State University. The facility, originally funded by the National Science Foundation, is committed to the isotopic and elemental analysis of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and hydrogen in both organic and inorganic phases.

The Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry Laboratory acts as a training facility by offering a graduate course on the use of isotopes in the natural sciences. The laboratory features a ThermoFinnigan Delta Plus mass spectrometer with two peripherals, a Shimadzu gas chromatograph, a Alpkem autoanalyzer and multi-sample ballmill grinding facilities. The facility allows students at both K-State and the University of Kansas to gain hands-on experience, and also serves as a regional research facility for stable isotope users.
