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."

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 […]
