"We use IONICON PTR-MS and PTR-TOFMS instruments for real-time measurements of a broad array of VOCs in the atmosphere, including ecosystem and aircraft scale flux measurements, direct emissions from plants and microbial cultures, controlled laboratory oxidation studies of VOC reactions and secondary aerosol formation, and field studies of atmospheric chemistry and air pollution. The rapid response and low detection limits made possible by these instruments are critical to our scientific investigations."
"Our IONICON PTR-MS offers us the unique possibility to follow dynamic processes of VOCs in many aspects relating to food/food packaging and their physiological impact. This not only greatly complements our classical gas chromatography-based chemical analyses but also opens up new fields of investigation previously not accessible with these techniques."
"The Ionicon PTR-MS offers us the excellent sensitivity and time resolution that we need for making virtual disjunct eddy covariance flux measurements of biogenic VOCs from forests to the atmosphere. In addition, the excellent service offered by Ionicon allows us to explore innovative uses of the instrument. For example, with their help we are now planning to measure landscape scale fluxes by mounting the PTR-MS on a small airplane."

At the Frontier of Airborne Research aboard NASA’s Flying Laboratory Using the opportunity provided by NASA’s Student Airborne Research Program (SARP) we gave wings to our newly developed CHARON aerosol inlet. In cooperation with the University of Oslo our team combined CHARON and a custom built PTR-TOF 4000 instrument. Airworthiness requires withstanding of heavy G-forces, […]
