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 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.”
"During the past two decades, the continued development of IONICON PTRMS systems has led to a steady advancement of our research capabilities resulting in important scientific discoveries as well as providing a large share of the biosphere-atmosphere VOC exchange measurements we have used as the basis for developing VOC emission models for air quality and climate models. In addition to the outstanding performance of their instruments, the excellent support and collaborative environment at IONICON have been critical to the success of our research program."
"Our group uses Ionicon PTR-MS and PTR-QiTOF instruments to study the sources, chemistry, and impacts of atmospheric organic compounds across a diverse range of environments. We use these instruments because the combination of sensitivity, mass resolution, and fast time response provides an important toolset for our research."
