The World's Leading PTR-MS Trace Analyzers Company

PTR3-TOF 10k mass spectrometer - Trace VOC-ELVOC Analyzer

Detection limit: < 0,1 pptv
Sensitivity: > 50000 cps/ppbv
Mass Resolution: > 12000


The PTR3-TOF 10k is a new generation of ultimate performance PTR-TOF systems optimized for the detection of highly-oxygenated organic molecules and RO2 radicals.

The instrument comprises a novel high-resolution TOF, a triple ion source and an advanced inlet system for virtually contact free sample introduction in order to minimize sampling losses of reactive organic molecules.

At a glance

  • Detection optimized from VOC to ELVOC, highly-oxygenated molecules and RO2 radicals
  • Virtually loss-less dual-stage core sampling inlet system
  • TRIONSOURCE triple ion source for fast switching between H3O+, NO+ and NH4+
  • IP protected novel 3D tripole reactor
  • Renowned ION-BOOSTER funnel and hexapole ION-GUIDE
  • New high-resolution ioniTOF 10K

The PTR3 is your ticket to the future of PTR-TOF performance. A unique combination of the most refined and advanced IONICON technologies with the patent protected 3D tripole reactor enables outstanding sensitivities of more than 50000 cps/ppbv for e.g. ketones and the novel high-resolution ioniTOF 10k features mass resolving powers of typically 10000 to 15000 m/Δm, still qualifying for our TRU-E/N ion chemistry quality label.
