IONICON instrument: PTR-TOF 8000
Contact person: Dr. Simona M. Cristescu

Why is an IONICON PTR-MS very well suited for your measurement tasks?

The PTR-TOF 8000 we mainly use for exhaled breath analysis. The excellent sensitivity of the instrument allows us to characterize and monitor in real-time changes in the exhaled VOC profile induced by e.g. dietary intake (SCFAs) or prolonged exercise. This gives us information on metabolic changes within the human body in a non-invasive manner
