Isotopic Ratio Institute is the private Center of Applied Research on Traceability and develops chemiometric models through isotopic ratio mass spectrometry such as isotopic measurement of heavy elements (Pb, Sr, U). The Institute is born from the collaboration between Massimo Peruzzo (Eurolab Analysis) and Marco Ferrante (PhD Chemistry). Since 2015 IRI is located in Northern Italy. OUR VISION: to become a point of reference in the development of innovative traceability models in Italy and in the rest of Europe. Our strenght is our know-how of Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry. We worked on isotope chemistry of heavy elements (Sr and Pb) using instruments for Thermal Ionization Mass Spectrometry (TIMS). Nowadays IRI is collaborating with Ametek-Spectro for the using of Spectro MS instruments in isotopic ratio measurements. Our strong know-how has made us the most reliable partner in the market of products’ traceability. We are developing projects with some of the main italian and international companies belonging to food and fashion industries. In the food market our aim is to increase the value of raw materials such as Italian tomato, corn and cheese; in the fashion and luxury market we are tracking raw materials against commercial fraud.
