The sample is ionized using the ionic generator and then passed through a magnetic field that separates the samples into different groups based on their mass and ionization levels.

Living things are in equilibrium with the atmosphere, and the radioactive carbon dioxide is absorbed and used by plants. Used one extensively in in the 60's during engineering school years and always wanted to own one.
