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 guide multipole technology
Increased sensitivity and resolution for PTR-TOFMS with the ION GUIDE multipole technology. Included in selected PTR-TOFMS systems.

"The IONICON PTR-TOF-MS is a recognized gold standard in the trace gas analysis of complex mixtures. Therefore, we use it as calibration and validation device for our novel gas sensors for breath analysis."
"We are studying VOCs and their chemistry in the atmosphere. These VOCs from various sources are often present in very low concentrations therefore we need an instrument with a low detection limit. One important part of our research is the biosphere atmosphere interaction. We measure e.g. plants emissions. Plants emit a wide variety of VOCs which demands an analyzer able to cover a broad mass range in a short period of time. The IONICON PTR-TOF 4000 allows for simultaneous measurements of many VOCs with high sensitivity at high temporal resolution."
“The acquisition of a Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) represents an expansion of the current instrumental facilities of the VOC laboratory. The PTR-MS will provide the laboratory with extended capabilities in terms of long-term reliability and extreme sensitivity, which are necessary for the implementation of VOC-based breath tests within clinical practice.”
