Proton Transfer Reaction - Mass Spectrometry
PTR-MS (Proton Transfer Reaction – Mass Spectrometry) is the benchmark method for simultaneous real-time monitoring of volatile (organic) compounds (VOCs) without sample preparation in very low concentrations. We're the market-leading PTR-MS company.
Selective Reagent Ionization - Mass Spectrometry
SRI-MS is a new technology where the user can select from different reagent ions for chemical ionization direct injection mass spectrometry, only available from IONICON. Our expertise as the world's leading PTR-MS company lead to the development of new ionization technologies currently including H3O+, O2+, NO+, Kr+ or Xe+ as selective reagent ions.

"We have a longstanding history with IONICON instruments to measure eddy covariance fluxes of NMVOCs in the atmosphere...The eddy covariance method requires fast measurements (e.g. on the order of 10Hz)...We have used IONICON instruments on board of aircraft or ground based measurement sites to perform these types of measurements."
"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."

Must-attend science forum attracted over 100 conferees from 18 nations. At the beginning of February 2019, the International PTR-MS Conference was held for the 8th time. Ever since the first International PTR-MS Conference in 2003, organized by the Institute of Ion Physics of the University of Innsbruck and sponsored by IONICON, the event became a […]

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 […]
