“We are using the PTR-TOF 1000 to measure odorous compounds that are produced during intensive animal production. This is supporting our research program, which is focused on understanding and reducing the livestock smells. The PTR-TOF 1000 allows us to rapidly measure a selection of compounds over a broad concentration range, which we encounter depending on whether we sample directly from odorous area sources, production buildings or the surrounding environment."

"I am interested in the role played by reactive volatile organic compounds in the real time photochemistry that occurs in South Asian ambient air, where field measurements are particularly challenging. Ionicon PTR-MS instruments are rugged and combine high sensitivity with high time response enabling such difficult measurements of reactive volatile organic compounds to be made in real time."


Atmospheric Pressure Interface for the Modular ioniTOF Platform The ioniTOF is our modular and flexible, entry-level to high-resolution Time-of-Flight platform, featuring custom interfaces and high-performance IONICON hexapole ION-GUIDEs. All our renowned PTR-TOFMS series products are exclusively based on the ioniTOF. Now we took this concept one step further and developed an Atmospheric Pressure Interface for […]
