Why is an IONICON PTR-MS very well suited for your measurement tasks?
We are studying VOCs and their chemistry in the atmosphere. These VOCs from various sources are often present in very low concentrations therefore we need an instrument with a low detection limit. One important part of our research is the biosphere atmosphere interaction. We measure e.g. plants emissions. Plants emit a wide variety of VOCs which demands an analyzer able to cover a broad mass range in a short period of time. The IONICON PTR-TOF 4000 allows for simultaneous measurements of many VOCs with high sensitivity at high temporal resolution.
