Finesse developed at the OU to measure carbon and nitrogen form the same sample. Planetary science research at The Open University has a long history in the development of hi-sensitivity static vacuum mass spectrometers that utilise the actual mass spectrometer as the sample reservoir in the same manner as a noble gas instrument. This provides a gain in sensitivity of up to 4 orders of magnitude with a loss in precision of about 1 order of magnitude compared to dual inlet instruments. As most meteorite samples are generally very precious but contain large isotopic variations this is a more than acceptable compromise
