“The acquisition of a Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) represents an expansion of the current instrumental facilities of the VOC laboratory. The PTR-MS will provide the laboratory with extended capabilities in terms of long-term reliability and extreme sensitivity, which are necessary for the implementation of VOC-based breath tests within clinical practice.”
"During the past two decades, the continued development of IONICON PTRMS systems has led to a steady advancement of our research capabilities resulting in important scientific discoveries as well as providing a large share of the biosphere-atmosphere VOC exchange measurements we have used as the basis for developing VOC emission models for air quality and climate models. In addition to the outstanding performance of their instruments, the excellent support and collaborative environment at IONICON have been critical to the success of our research program."
"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."

Celebrating the “Gold Standard” for Real-Time Trace Gas Analysis On July 14, 1998, our company was founded by a group of dedicated scientists and entrepreneurs. The aim was to make commercially available a technology that soon was to become the new benchmark for real-time monitoring of extremely low concentrated VOCs: PTR-MS. In June 2018 we got […]
