Impact of the ioni APi-TOF and why we received the award
The ioni APi-TOF enables its users for the first time to measure high-mass cluster ions, but simultaneously also the composition of precursor compounds and gas-phase impurities, which is important in the context of atmospheric ion clusters.
The ioni APi-TOF therefore overcomes shortcomings of other commercial products that rely on TOFs with quadrupole ion-guides. These can only be tuned on lower or higher m/z but not to cover the whole mass range of interest.
Thus, particularly in atmospheric chemistry and environmental research, important data are inevitably lost if the ions do not match these parameters.
ioni APi-TOF users can now see the full picture and not only selected parts of the spectrum which is a major benefit.
