Automated Measurement and Evaluation (AME) software
IONICON's AME software is a framework to set up PTR-MS for monitoring of a complex set of compounds by Automating Measurement, data Evaluation, and visualization.
By acquiring data in different ionization modes, additional information can be gathered from one sample. By changing the pre-cursor ions from H3O+ to O2+, additional compounds can be ionized, or different product ions are produced when switching to e.g. NO+. In addition the energy (E/N) in the ionization process can be modulated in order to suppress or increase fragmentation behaviour of molecules. This unique feature of PTR-MS, is particularly useful to separate isomers, since different product ion ratios can be obtained, which provide highly compound specific information. The AME software automates this process and can aggregate data from more than 8 different modes.
