The World's Leading PTR-MS Trace Analyzers Company

X2 Option

Push the instrument sensitivity beyond 20.000 cps/ppb

2020 starts with a considerable performance upgrade of the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra and the PTR-TOF 4000! New and improved hardware components increase the instrument’s sensitivity dramatically.

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.

PTR-TOF 4000

Up to 10,000 cps/ppbv with the most versatile high-resolution PTR-TOF

The PTR-TOF 4000 which already has the ION-GUIDE hexapole in standard configuration, will receive an ION-BOOSTER funnel. The X2 option allows to reach the sensitivities and LODs mentioned in the X2-paragraph of the PTR-TOF 4000 system performance specifications.

Please note, that the installation of the X2 option increases the sensitivities, but also limits the linearity range of the instrument.

ION-BOOSTER allows precise E/N conditions and well known ion-chemistry by "TRU-E/N" method.
