"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.[...]"


CHARON PTR-TOF and new technologies for increased PTR-TOF performance Our team was able to meet many of you at the ASMS meeting and our science presentations. Those of you who didn’t make it to the conference or our posters, are now able to pull a copy from our website. See what’s coming up and get […]

Real-time analysis of aerosols with CHARON PTR-TOFMS and modular X2 technologies for PTR-TOF performance enhancement At the beginning of June it’ll be time to gather for the 65th annual ASMS conference on mass spectrometry and allied topics. IONICON R&D scientists will be there to present our most recent innovations and allow sneak-peeks on upcoming products. Among the most […]
