We just delivered our most recent ruggedized and airworthy PTR-TOF 4000 instrument to its new home: the University of Montana where it is going to be airborne soon. When asked what Prof. Hu likes about this system and why it is so well suited for his application, he told us:
“We use a PTR-TOF-MS to study the chemistry and emission of VOCs focusing on wildfires and land-atmosphere exchange. The custom-built instrument allows us to carry out the trace gas concentration and flux measurements on a research aircraft and on the ground with outstanding response time, mass resolution, and sensitivities.”
We’re looking forward to the first flight campaign results of Prof. Hu and wish him and his team all the best.
Should you be thinking about projects where you need a custom TOF analyzer or PTR-TOFMS system, don’t hesitate and challenge us with your idea!
