The World's Leading PTR-MS Trace Analyzers Company

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

Detection limit: < 0,2 pptv
Sensitivity: up to 50000 cps/ppbv
Mass Resolution: > 10000


The PTR3 CI-TOF 10k is part of our Next-Gen instruments series and 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
  • TRION triple ion source for fast switching between H3O+, NO+ and NH4+
  • IP protected novel 3D tripole reactor

The PTR3 is a unique combination of the most refined and advanced IONICON technologies. The patent protected 3D tripole reactor enables outstanding sensitivities of up to 50000 cps/ppbv for e.g. ketones and the ioniTOF 10k features a high mass resolution of typically 10000 to 15000 m/Δm.
