The 8th International PTR-MS Conference, Innsbruck, Austria – a review

Must-attend science forum attracted over 100 conferees from 18 nations

At the beginning of February 2019, the International PTR-MS Conference was held for the 8th time. Ever since the first International PTR-MS Conference in 2003, organized by the Institute of Ion Physics of the University of Innsbruck and sponsored by IONICON, the event became a fixed point in the scientific agenda of many of our international peers.

Since then the conference evolved, attracting more and more participants filling larger venues. If at the very beginning technology enthusiasts and early-adopters were gathering to exchange and network on their experiences with the first IONICON Quadrupole-PTR-MS instruments, the meeting soon became the PTR-MS event for all IONICON instrument users. The program comprised a selection of parallel sessions covering the very broad field of applications that modern PTR-TOF instruments are successfully used in.

In February 2019, directly after the “hands-on” PTR-MS training seminar and the IONICON User-Day, the 8th International PTR-MS Conference attracted more than 100 participants to Innsbruck, Austria. An incredible 51 talks in 5 sessions were presented by scientists in all stages of their academic career incl. one session dedicated to industrial VOC monitoring applications. Attendees from 18 nations made this an exciting science forum, contributing their work in oral- as well as two poster-sessions.

As a proud sponsor of the PTR-MS conference series we were showcasing our new PTR-TOF 6000 X2 2019 Performance Edition incl. CHARON, the high-resolution ioni APi-TOF 6000 as well as upcoming revolutionary PTR and TOF technology.

We are glad that the organizers could attract such a diverse spectrum of IONICON instrument related work to be presented and discussed in our hometown, at historical premises of the University of Innsbruck, which is also home of PTR-MS.
