First event in 5 years attracted close to 100 participants
5 years after the last PTR-MS community event, the 9th International PTR-MS Conference was held at the beginning of 2024. More than 20 years after the first PTR-MS Conference organized by the Institute of Ion Physics of the University of Innsbruck and sponsored by IONICON, the PTR-MS community gathered again. We're glad that this must-attend event for PTR-MS users returned after the pandemic years and this time it was held in Seefeld, Tirol, Austria.
5 years is a long time where many innovations were introduced to the market and adopted by scientists from all over the world who were sharing their results with peers. Moreover, our success in industrial markets during the last couple of years also attracted colleagues working in the semiconductor and related industries. The conference evolved towards Time of Flight mass spectrometry based PTR-MS instruments and covered classic but also emerging applications such as Environmental Research, Food & Flavor Science, Health & Breath Analysis, Future Trends and Industrial Applications.
