The World's Leading PTR-MS Trace Analyzers Company

Compact IONICON PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer

The smallest, lightest and most affordable time of flight based PTR-MS.
Sensitivity: > 200 cps/ppbv
Resolution: > 1500
LoD: < 10 pptv


The PTR-TOF 1000 is an IONICON PTR-TOFMS instrument with dimensions, weight and price usually restricted to high-end quadrupole PTR-MS, but having all the advantages only powerful time of flight based solutions offer:

  • the entire mass range in split-seconds - no selection of masses - no waiting
  • faster and more sensitive for complex mixtures and
  • high mass resolution for better separation and identification.

The instrument demonstrated its reliability and robustness but also its remarkable technical abilities and speed during various international campaigns (e.g. NASA's DISCOVER-AQ) and is ideally suited for analysis of VOCs at a very high time resolution. It comes with a fully integrated IONICON data acquisition and data treatment software suite.

Enter into the world of PTR-TOFMS with IONICON’s PTR-TOF 1000: our smallest, lightest and most affordable time PTR-TOF trace gas analyzer. Don't settle for anything less advanced!

But wait, the PTR-TOF 1000 just got ultra-sensitive. Expect up to 10x increased sensitivity with the brand new PTR-TOF 1000 ultra.
