Environmental Research

Quantify VOC emission in real-time no matter where and when. PTR-MS offers pptv-level sensitivity and is a robust tool, used on flight campaigns, metropolitan pollution studies and tropospheric VOC studies all over the world.

Flux Measurement of BVOCs

The ultra-fast analysis capabilities of IONICON PTR-TOF instruments are essential for eddy covariance flux measurements, allowing to study deposition and emission rates of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs). 

Biological Research

Experience the real-time advantage of direct sampling and get immediate results from biogenic VOC releases in nature, measure leaf wounding compounds and other biological processes

Food, Flavor and Fragrance Science

We taste aroma and flavours in real-time, so should the instrument you use for dynamic headspace analysis and aroma release profiling. PTR-MS does and is capable of a lot more than simple electronic noses.

Indoor Air Quality

Quantify harmful VOCs causing the so called "Sick Building Syndrome" in the offices, public buildings and even public transport (e.g. aircraft cabin or car). PTR-MS gives you immediate results of what the air you breath is made of.

Semiconductor Industry: AMC-Monitoring

Automated monitoring solutions for airborne molecular contaminations (AMC) in the clean-room environment, in FOUPs, at the tool-level and the whole fab.

Petrochemical Applications

Monitoring of syngas and other gas processes for safety, quality assurance and process optimization. 

Automotive

Monitoring exhaust gas from combustion engines, emitting a large number of different compounds and with rapidly changing concentrations, necessitates an instrument that measures in real-time and with high sensitivity – an IONICON PTR-TOFMS. 

Biotechnology

PTR-MS systems can be used to gather highly relevant process related information in biopharmaceutical fermentations from analyzing volatile metabolites in the fermenters off-gas. 

Medical Applications

PTR-MS are powerful tools for non-invasive, real-time breath gas analysis with many applications, such as screening for disease markers, study of pharmacokinetics or metabolic processes.

Security and Safety

Unique features of our technology make IONICON PTR-MS instruments the ideal tool for illicit substances detection like chemical warfare agents (CWA), toxic industrial compounds (TIC) and explosives.
