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+...

"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."
"We use IONICON PTR-MS and PTR-TOFMS instruments for real-time measurements of a broad array of VOCs in the atmosphere, including ecosystem and aircraft scale flux measurements, direct emissions from plants and microbial cultures, controlled laboratory oxidation studies of VOC reactions and secondary aerosol formation, and field studies of atmospheric chemistry and air pollution. The rapid response and low detection limits made possible by these instruments are critical to our scientific investigations."
"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."
