Due to the development of multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS) around 25 years ago, the isotopes of a large range of elements (masses from Li to U) are now analyzed with high enough precision and accuracy to resolve subtle natural variations. These so-called 'non-traditional stable isotope systems' opened many new research avenues and are applied at an increasing rate in research and industry projects and in a broad range of different disciplines, including archeology, biology, physics, cosmochemistry and geology. Here, we briefly summarize the most basic concepts of MC-ICP-MS, introduce new technical developments and address important points on how to acquire accurate high-precision isotope measurements of non-traditional stable isotopes.
