we have made some attempts to measure NO in continuous flow IRMS and what we learned is that you do not want to have NO in your machine as it is very sticky and a pain to purge from your system. I strongly recommend you convert your NO to something nicer like N2O.

Does anyone out there run NO for 18O and if so are there any pitfalls I should look out for?
I can not seem to find anything recent on the interwebs. Should I convert the NO to something easier like N2O???
I would be analyzing pure gas on an Isoprime dual inlet.
