"IONICON's instruments are manufactured in top quality having a superior performance in sensitivity and detection limit"
"We require high sensitivity and fast response times in order to push the boundaries of Oxygenated Volatile Organic Compound (OVOC) research in both air and seawater. The PTR-MS meets these requirements and is also extremely adaptable, enabling us to carry out our novel science not only in the laboratory, but also at sea."
"Measurements of VOCs are extremely rare in the tropical region of Asia. In India a variety of sources such as anthropogenic, biomass burning, biogenic and photochemical sources contribute to the budget of VOCs. In tropics, the fast response time measurements of VOCs are required to understand the rapid photochemical formation of ozone and secondary organic aerosols. In India, the PTR-TOF-MS based measurement is particularly crucial to understand the tropical photochemistry. The high time and mass resolved measurements of VOCs using PTR-TOF-MS will be important to estimate the emissions flux from terrestrial vegetation and surrounding oceanic regions of India.[...]"


Real-time Quantification of Impurities in Food-Grade CO2 with PTR-MS The modern food and beverage industry is not imaginable without food-grade carbon (CO2) dioxide. Its many uses include carbonation of beverages, and as packaging and cooling gas. In this study we investigate volatile organic impurities emerging from a food-grade certified (European standard E 290) carbon dioxide cylinder […]

An exciting program around IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology Pittcon 2017 attracted thousands of scientists and industry decision makers who discovered the latest trends in laboratory instruments, one of which being the new PTR-TOF 4000. We showcased our new real-time trace VOC analyzer at our booth and attracted the crowds. Our team was supported by our US distributor Trace VOC. […]
