"The IONICON PTR-QiTOF is very well suited for ANAEE-S. It will be used to measure VOC fluxes as a tracer of the ecosystem functioning and its level of biodiversity. It will also be used for measuring VOC fluxes from the whole ecosystems by eddy-covariance, as well as separating the contributions from soil and canopy with chambers. The analyser will serve to determine the links between VOC emissions from soils and the soil microbial activity."
"We use our PTR-MS system, consisting of two compact PTR-MS and a calibration unit, to measure breakthrough curves of adsorption filters for various gases, including highly toxic substances. The tailored Ionicon dilution stages gives us the unique opportunity to measure in a very wide range from 5 ppb to 1000 ppm."


Celebrating the “Gold Standard” for Real-Time Trace Gas Analysis On July 14, 1998, our company was founded by a group of dedicated scientists and entrepreneurs. The aim was to make commercially available a technology that soon was to become the new benchmark for real-time monitoring of extremely low concentrated VOCs: PTR-MS. In June 2018 we got […]

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 […]
