Custom Built Analytical Instruments
Research instrumentation developed according to your needs.

We have experience in developing individual instruments for more than two decades. Take advantage from our engineering know-how.

PTR-MS systems, adapted for flight campaigns

More than a dozen of PTR-MS instruments have already been fitted into special racks, designed for the use in aircraft. Each unique and one of a kind, specially constructed with the skill of our engineers according to your needs. If you plan a flight campaign, let us build a custom instrument for you or hand over your existing instrument to us and we integrate it into a flight-approved rack.

PTR-MS installed in cars, on ships

and other means of transport in order to give you the possibility to successfully monitor VOCs also in remote places. PTR-MS solutions can be mounted on on mobile platforms or be built into given structures. Wire-rope isolators protect your instrument against shocks. IONICON instrument are can be remoted-controlled. Why don't you take "your lab" with you? We can help!

Modular, lightweight and small custom TOF-MS

Do you face constraints in weight or size? We can help! Our engineering team builds modular versions of our instruments with a reduced weight and size impact. A smaller footprint is possible by higher density of internal components and the careful rearrangement of parts. Moreover, specially crafted mounting solutions and racks can be provided.

A challenge is building an instrument in two modular bases placed next or on top of each other, allowing for various layout options. Our options give you a more versatile and flexible scope of using PTR-TOFMS during e.g. campaigns with a reduced size and weight access or site e.g. loading ports of ships, helicopters, research aircraft or measurements towers. Tell us your requirements and we will work out a solution!

PTR-MS coupled with GC-MS systems

give access to the advantages of both technologies. Separation of VOCs by gas chromatography (GC) and simultaneous monitoring by PTR-MS make identification of complex PTR-MS spectra feasible.

PTR-MS inlet system options

including multiple sampling ports, valves, heating hoses in different combinations are available on demand. Our specialists are willing to satisfy your needs. Let's talk about the possibilities. Challenge our engineers!
