The Analyzer for your Analytical Instrument
Quadrupole or time-of-flight mass spectrometer Since 1998 IONICON produces and develops PTR-MS instruments. Nowadays nearly all our analytical instruments are based on a TOF-MS. Learn why and decide what type of detector is the best for your analytical objective. Here are some tips which might help you to decide what type of detector is the best for your analytical objective:
The technologies we use in our solutions: PTR-MS, SRI-MS, SRI+...

"Major research areas in the domain of Bioscience Engineering (Ghent University) encompass research in food chemistry, food microbiology and preservation, environmental chemistry and technology, chemical ecology and plant host signaling. In the specified research areas, the group of the Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) plays an important role. Some VOC have biological effects at very low concentrations (sub ppbv) and are usually present in complex mixtures, which make VOC analysis quite a challenge. The introduction of PTR-MS enables to take major steps towards VOC monitoring. The PTR-QiTOF instrument is unique in its combination of (a) sensitivity (b) real time monitoring possibilities and (c) increased identification quality through high resolution mass spectrometry."
"Our group uses Ionicon PTR-MS and PTR-QiTOF instruments to study the sources, chemistry, and impacts of atmospheric organic compounds across a diverse range of environments. We use these instruments because the combination of sensitivity, mass resolution, and fast time response provides an important toolset for our research."
"At Wageningen UR we see many research applications for the IONICON PTR-QiTOF. It’s easy use, sensitivity, accuracy and on line detection without the need of prior treatments makes it a high potential instrument for all kinds of diagnostic and quality oriented research, going from environmental issues, to food and to health biomarkers."

Ultra-Fast Time Response Even for IVOCs & SVOCs Real-Time Ultra-Sensitive trace VOC analyzers from IONICON are known for their response times in fractions of a second and hence are often used to follow rapidly changing processes and VOC signals. However, some substances are known to show a slower instrumental response because of unwanted surface interactions. […]
