"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."

Crucial application benefits from fast switching NH4+ ionization The proprietary and IONICON exclusive method of producing NH4+ solely from H2O vapor and N2 in the established hollow cathode ion source, without the need of any ammonia (PCT application submitted) has many advantages. Today we would like to introduce a promising application field where NH4+ is the […]

A novel proprietary method of NH4+ production for IONICON customers In PTR-TOF-MS traditionally H3O+ reagent ions produced from H2O vapor are used. NH4+ reagent ions have been mentioned in literature as being particularly beneficial because of higher sensitivity (less fragmentation) and higher selectivity (higher proton affinity). However, so far toxic and corrosive ammonia was needed […]
