X2 Performance Option
Available for PTR-TOF 1000 ultra and PTR-TOF 4000.
The X2 option is a combination of the ION-BOOSTER funnel and the hexapole ION-GUIDE, typically increasing the instruments' sensitivity.
PTR-TOF 1000 ultra
The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra which already has the ION-BOOSTER funnel in standard configuration, will receive a hexapole ION-GUIDE. The X2 option allows to reach the sensitivities and LODs mentioned in the X2-paragraph of the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra system performance specifications.
Please note, that the installation of the X2 option increases the sensitivities, but also limits the linearity range of the instrument.
The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra was initially launched in 2016 and with its ION-BOOSTER funnel a considerably more performing instrument than the entry-level PTR-TOF 1000. But this is not the end!
20,000 cps/ppbv with new X2 Option for PTR-TOF 1000 ultra
The X2 option is a combination of the ION-BOOSTER and the hexapole ION-GUIDE. It pushes the instrument’s sensitivity beyond known limits. The PTR-TOF 1000 X2 sets the new industry-benchmark in PTR-MS sensitivity and comes with 10,000-20,000 cps/ppbv, delivering low detection limits in incredible short integration times. Of course we make sure existing customers can upgrade as well.
True to our mission of a precisely controlled ion-chemistry and a reliable as well as robust set-up, we offer patented TRU-E/N ion-chemistry quality for all our PTR-TOF instruments.
