"We require high sensitivity and fast response times in order to push the boundaries of Oxygenated Volatile Organic Compound (OVOC) research in both air and seawater. The PTR-MS meets these requirements and is also extremely adaptable, enabling us to carry out our novel science not only in the laboratory, but also at sea."
"Measurements of VOCs are extremely rare in the tropical region of Asia. In India a variety of sources such as anthropogenic, biomass burning, biogenic and photochemical sources contribute to the budget of VOCs. In tropics, the fast response time measurements of VOCs are required to understand the rapid photochemical formation of ozone and secondary organic aerosols. In India, the PTR-TOF-MS based measurement is particularly crucial to understand the tropical photochemistry. The high time and mass resolved measurements of VOCs using PTR-TOF-MS will be important to estimate the emissions flux from terrestrial vegetation and surrounding oceanic regions of India.[...]"
"Brilliant combination of in obtaining sophisticated data and simplicity in operation and maintenance."
"The IONICON LCU-a allows us to generate trace amounts of VOCs from aqueous standards that are analyzed with our developed biosensor devices. The unit has been adapted to provide a new strategy of electrical characterization at room temperature within biomedical applications, specifically for the H2020 HEARTEN project."
"The PTR-MS is great for us because it works very well for DMS and all its isotopes. This makes it great for doing process studies in which we follow the conversion pathways of environmentally important compounds. Because of its high sensitivity there is no need for preconcentration of samples anymore, which simplifies our analysis greatly. Also setting-up the machine is relatively easy, (essentially plug-and-play) which is very convenient in remote places."
