PTR-TOF 4000

Compact IONICON High-Resolution PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer
Compact IONICON High-Resolution PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer

Our smallest and lightest high-resolution PTR-TOFMS.
Detection limit: < 5 pptv
Sensitivity: > 200 cps/ppbv
Mass Resolution: > 4000


The new PTR-TOF 4000 is a compact, ultra-sensitive & high-resolution IONICON PTR-TOF real-time trace VOC analyzer.

It is our first high-resolution PTR-TOFMS built into the same small and lightweight layout known from our successful PTR-TOF 1000 series.

It also features the new hexapole ION-GUIDE technology for increased sensitivity and resolution. The PTR-TOF 4000 thus allows you to benefit from both high mass resolving power and high-sensitivity.

Like the other instruments built on this platform also the PTR-TOF 4000 demonstrated its reliability and robustness but also its remarkable technical abilities and speed during various international campaigns (e.g. NASA's KORUS-AQ).

Go for a high-resolution instrument with the new PTR-TOF 4000: our smallest, lightest and most affordable high-resolution time PTR-TOF trace gas analyzer. Don't settle for anything less advanced.
