Visitors were curious to test their breath in real-time and get some insight on the air they inhale at the show floor
Pittcon 2013 took place in Philadelphia for the very first time and attracted more than 18,000 attendees, 1,011 exhibiting companies from 28 countries and of course also us. We at IONICON showcased our most recent products such as the Liquid Calibration Unit (LCU), the IONIMED BET-med breath sampling inlet, and a full range of Trace Gas Analyzers based on PTR-MS and SRI-MS technology.
We feel that a live demonstration of our PTR-MS instruments is the best way to show their outstanding capabilities. Many visitors were attracted by the chance of doing real-time breath analysis and experienced the benefits of a quantitative and fast response, having a PTR-QMS 300 instrument connected to a special BET-med breath sampling inlet.
In connection to the 6th International PTR-MS Conference the very first PTR-MS user day took place…
At the beginning of February we invited interested PTR-MS users to a very special community day before the 6th International PTR-MS Conference at the University Centre, Obergurgl, Austria. The IONICON team and 5 selected PTR-MS experts covering various fields of expertise and experiences held the very first IONICON PTR-MS User Day attracting more than 30 attendees.
Researchers on a mission for NASA use newly developed real-time trace gas analyzer from IONICON to measure air pollution in the atmosphere.
What is the quality of the air we breathe? NASA is trying to answer this question using satellite-based Earth observations. By the end of the century, satellite data shall be used for monitoring and predicting air quality, much the same as now for weather forecasting. To understand how air pollutants are distributed within the Earth’s atmosphere, NASA makes use of a new compact proton transfer reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometer (PTR-TOF-MS) which we specially developed for NASA deployment.
The innovative lightweight PTR-TOF-MS delivered data with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution measuring smallest concentrations of volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere. The instrument was deployed for the first time onboard the NASA P-3B research aircraft during the DISCOVER-AQ mission in January and February 2013 to study air pollution in the San Joaquin Valley in California.
The 6th IONICON hands-on PTR-MS training seminar attracted more participants than ever to Innsbruck. An extraordinary program awaited PTR-MS users from all over the world.
With these impressions we would like to thank you for joining us and making hands-on PTR-MS 2013 a very pleasant and successful event!
Discover a new calibration method for trace gas analyzers for an extensive range of compounds and concentrations. The new Ionimed Liquid Calibration Unit (LCU) uses an optimized method based on the evaporation of aqueous standards – a highly versatile technique for trace gas calibration.
A new generation in high sensitivity and high resolution Proton Transfer Reaction Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry
We entered the market of commercial PTR-TOF-MS instruments in 2007 and soon became the benchmark for ultimate performance. True to our mission to developing instruments that go beyond known standards, we launched a product that exceeded specifications claimed in the literature at that time by far.
Now we redefine known standards again, but this time our own:
The IONICON PTR-TOF 8000 and PTR-TOF 2000, tuned to perfection, are both continuing to lead their respective fields in the market of time of flight based PTR-MS instruments: the PTR-TOF 8000 features the highest mass resolving power and the PTR-TOF 2000 the lowest detection limit of all commercially available PTR-TOF-MS systems.
Investments in in our R&D capabilities, but also in software engineering and ongoing optimization efforts have raised the bar: download our new PTR-TOFMS series Performance White Paper and have a look at our PTR-TOFMS series Performance Website to learn more.
The focus of EU project LCAOS is the development of nano-sensors for medical breath analysis. Ionimed provides PTR-MS technology to complement the sensor information and develops a novel calibration device for sensor characterization.
