The accelerator mass spectrometry system based on the 16 MV tandem accelerator at the Laboratori Nazionali di Legnaro is described. A high-resolution electrostatic deflector rejects isotopic background and other unwanted beams transmitted with the same magnetic rigidity as the rare isotope. Use of this system for 10Be and 36Cl measurements in enriched and natural samples is presented.
