"We use a PTR-TOF-MS to study the chemistry and emission of VOCs focusing on wildfires and land-atmosphere exchange. The custom-built instrument allows us to carry out the trace gas concentration and flux measurements on a research aircraft and on the ground with outstanding response time, mass resolution, and sensitivities."
"The IONICON PTR-TOF-MS is a recognized gold standard in the trace gas analysis of complex mixtures. Therefore, we use it as calibration and validation device for our novel gas sensors for breath analysis."
"We are studying VOCs and their chemistry in the atmosphere. These VOCs from various sources are often present in very low concentrations therefore we need an instrument with a low detection limit. One important part of our research is the biosphere atmosphere interaction. We measure e.g. plants emissions. Plants emit a wide variety of VOCs which demands an analyzer able to cover a broad mass range in a short period of time. The IONICON PTR-TOF 4000 allows for simultaneous measurements of many VOCs with high sensitivity at high temporal resolution."

Close to 50 users gathered in Innsbruck for the 2019 PTR-TOF training. We reached out to the steadily growing base of IONICON instrument users in fall 2018, announcing the 2019 “hands-on” PTR-MS training course and the 3rd IONICON User-Day. The response was overwhelming and after receiving close to 50 applications, we had to close the […]
