PTR-QMS Performance Data
Market-leading online detection limits for VOCs reaching ppqv-level with ULTRA-PURE ion source. The best available detection limits for online trace gas analysis now also with H3O+, NO+ and O2+ as precursor ions.
Detection unit
Quadrupole or time of flight mass spectrometer Since 1998 IONICON produces and develops PTR-MS products. Our expertise in this field led us to the creation of quadrupole and time of flight based trace gas analyzers with different ionization methods. Here are some tips which might help you to decide what type of detector is the best for your analytical objective:
The technologies we use in our solutions: PTR-MS, SRI-MS, SRI+...

"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."
"The PTR-MS instrument provide us with unique opportunities to investigate dynamic mass transfer processes at low concentrations for a relatively complex chemical composition. We have obtained very useful results related to e.g. emissions of odorous VOC from livestock production and biological air filtration of VOC."
"We use the PTR-MS instrument for both in vitro and in vivo measurements. It constitues an very useful tool to characterize the dynamics of aroma release and to better understand what are the main parameters influencing aroma release, taking product properties and individual physiology into account. It can constitute a first step in better understanding the dynamics of perception."

IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology has become the leading method for real-time breath gas analysis. The International Association for Breath Research (IABR) held its annual summit conference at the renowned ETH Zürich in Switzerland. Between September 14 – 16, 2016, the latest scientific results in breath research were presented. In 12 talks researchers featured PTR-MS as their tool of […]

We at IONICON are proudly celebrating this achievement During the last days of September 2016 we finished the construction of PTR-MS instrument No. 300. It’s a PTR-TOF 1000 that we built for an overseas customer who will use it for analyzing chemical pollutants in industrial areas. Our team took some pride and special care when loading it […]
