"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.”
"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."
"Major research areas in the domain of Bioscience Engineering (Ghent University) encompass research in food chemistry, food microbiology and preservation, environmental chemistry and technology, chemical ecology and plant host signaling. In the specified research areas, the group of the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) plays an important role. Some VOC have biological effects at very low concentrations (sub ppbv) and are usually present in complex mixtures, which make VOC analysis quite a challenge. The introduction of PTR-MS enables to take major steps towards VOC monitoring. The PTR-QiTOF instrument is unique in its combination of (a) sensitivity (b) real time monitoring possibilities and (c) increased identification quality through high resolution mass spectrometry."
