Proton Transfer Reaction - Mass Spectrometry
PTR-MS (Proton Transfer Reaction – Mass Spectrometry) is the benchmark method for simultaneous real-time monitoring of volatile (organic) compounds (VOCs) without sample preparation in very low concentrations. We're the market-leading PTR-MS company.
Selective Reagent Ionization - Mass Spectrometry
SRI-MS is a new technology where the user can select from different reagent ions for chemical ionization direct injection mass spectrometry, only available from IONICON. Our expertise as the world's leading PTR-MS company lead to the development of new ionization technologies currently including H3O+, O2+, NO+, Kr+ or Xe+ as selective reagent ions.
IONICON ion funnel technology
Benefit from the ION BOOSTER technology with up to 10x increased sensitivity! Optionally available for selected new PTR-MS systems and as upgrade for many existing instruments.

"At Wageningen UR we see many research applications for the IONICON PTR-QiTOF. It’s easy use, sensitivity, accuracy and on line detection without the need of prior treatments makes it a high potential instrument for all kinds of diagnostic and quality oriented research, going from environmental issues, to food and to health biomarkers."
"Our IONICON PTR-MS offers us the unique possibility to follow dynamic processes of VOCs in many aspects relating to food/food packaging and their physiological impact. This not only greatly complements our classical gas chromatography-based chemical analyses but also opens up new fields of investigation previously not accessible with these techniques."
"The Ionicon PTR-MS offers us the excellent sensitivity and time resolution that we need for making virtual disjunct eddy covariance flux measurements of biogenic VOCs from forests to the atmosphere. In addition, the excellent service offered by Ionicon allows us to explore innovative uses of the instrument. For example, with their help we are now planning to measure landscape scale fluxes by mounting the PTR-MS on a small airplane."
