We are monitoring Innsbruck’s air for changes due to Austria’s “shutdown”
IONICON reacted quickly to help containing the Corona virus spread. From day one after the Austrian government has ordered a de facto shutdown including restrictions on the movement of people, most IONICONs work from home to keep our renowned customer support available to you on a real-time basis. Please use email as the preferred way to contact us and allow remote access to your instrument.
We currently take all required and recommended precautions and continue our production processes with limited and specially briefed staff.
Witnessing the shutdown and aiming to document its impact on the environment, we have started analyzing Innsbruck’s air with a CHARON PTR-TOF 6000 X2.
So does the University of Innsbruck deploying the same type of instrument at their site. Our goal is to quantify the effects of the shutdown on traffic emissions and the urban air quality.
