Ultimate Performance Ultra-Sensitive - High-Resolution IONICON PTR-TOFMS instrument
Ultimate Performance Ultra-Sensitive - High-Resolution IONICON PTR-TOFMS instrument

The Future of Performance:
Featuring a Quadrupole ion guide (Qi)
Detection limit: < 1 pptv

Sensitivity: > 800 cps/ppbv (Benzene)
Mass Resolution: > 5,500



Welcome to the Future of Performance!

Expect up to 20x more sensitivity, one order of magnitude lower detection limit and 20% higher mass resolution than its predecessor (IONICON PTR-TOF 8000).

The IONICON PTR-QiTOF continuously quantifies VOCs over the entire mass range in real-time delivering even ppqv-level detection limits in only a few seconds integration time. Our new flagship PTR-TOFMS series trace gas analyzer is by far our best offer in terms of mass resolving power, detection limit and sensitivity.

These record breaking and market-leading specifications are the achievement of our continuous investment in innovation and a new generation of IONICON PTR-TOFMS technology:

The new PTR-QiTOF features a Quadrupole ion guide (Qi). This combined with other improvements results in a performance, no other commercial PTR-TOFMS system has ever been able to achieve.

Using a high-end orthogonal acceleration reflectron time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometer with a Quadrupole ion guide (Qi) in combination with the IONICON PTR technology and our ULTRA-PURE ion source the new PTR-QiTOF achieves a mass resolution of more than 5,500 (m/Δm FWHM) and nevertheless reaches a limit of detection well below 1 pptv (in 60 sec) and sensitivity of more than 800 cps/ppbv for Benzene.
