Who we are and what we do

We are the world’s leading producer of real-time trace gas analyzers based on Proton Transfer Reaction – Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) technology, offering a market-leading detection limit < 1 pptv for VOCs. Our instruments are predominately used in the following application areas: environmental research, atmospheric chemistry, vehicle emissions testing, food & flavor science, illicit substances detection, medical breath analysis. We supply AMC-monitoring systems to the semiconductor industry for FOUP & cleanroom monitoring. We manufacture modular time-of-flight mass spectrometers for academic research & OEM and an award winning sampling system for aerosol & particulate matter (CHARON) as well as a fastGC interface for PTR-TOFMS. We complement our offer with analytical services and trace calibration devices.
Over 350 leading scientists, institutions and multinational corporations are among our customers.

Discover PTR-MS and its advantages

Learn how our technologies works and why we offer the best solution for real-time quantitative trace gas and aerosol analysis even in an automated, industrial monitoring setting. Understand how market-leading ppqv-level online detection limits are possible and how to get quantitative results in real-time without sample preparation.

We'll engage with you in our 20 minutes interactive product live demo. Come and join us when we show real-time VOC analysis from ambient air and breath sampling. Seating is limited, so be there early!

"The Air We Breathe In & Out at Pittcon"

Wednesday February 28, 2018. 4:00 pm, demo area 1 (booth #2142)

Would you like to find out what’s in the air you breathe in at the show floor or breathe into our instrument and find out which volatile metabolites you exhale? We analyze the air in real-time and visualize trace concentrations of organic compounds for you. The IONICON PTR-MS systems are ultra-sensitive mass spectrometers for the real-time analysis of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Our instruments are used all over the world in environmental research, atmospheric chemistry and biology, in food, flavor and aroma science, in breath gas air analysis, in room air and car exhaust emission monitoring, in the semiconductor industry and in many other applications.
