PTR-MS ist eine etablierte Technologie in der Lebensmittelanalytik und der Geschmacks- und Geruchsforschung
In den letzten Jahren ist PTR-MS zu einer Art “Goldstandard” in der Lebensmittelanalytik avanciert, wenn es darum geht quantitative Echtzeitdaten von Geruch und Geschmack, ohne aufwendige Probenvorbereitung direkt am Lebensmittel oder einer Testperson, die es zu sich nimmt, zu gewinnen. Lebensmittelkonzerne aber auch viele Forschungseinrichtungen setzen auf unsere Produkte um den Genuss für den Konsumenten zu erhöhen und gleichbleibende gute Qualität zu gewährleisten.
Ein neuer Fachartikel zum Thema PTR-MS als Technologie im Aroma-Design und der Lebensmittelsicherheit ist heute auf Laborpraxis.de erschienen. Eine gute Zusammenfassung des aktuellen Einsatzgebiets unserer hoch-empfindlichen Echtzeit-Analysegeräte für organische Bestandteile der Luft, bietet der Artikel:
“PTR-MS hilft beim Aroma-Design und der Lebensmittelsicherheit”
IONICON N.A.S.E. is a heated device for the collection of nosespace air and direct introduction into the inlet of a PTR-MS system.
We listened to the feedback from our customers and developed a device for further improving our response time optimized heated PEEK inlet system, especially for PTR-MS users in food, flavor & fragrance science.
Substances of interest such as e.g. Vanillin are often very “sticky” and condensate on cold spots of an inlet system. Therefore we have engineered a solution overcome this issue.

A new review article in Trends in Analytical Chemistry discusses direct-injection mass spectrometry for VOC analysis.
F. Biasioli, C. Yeretzian, T. D. Märk, J. Dewulf and H. Van Langenhove wrote an interesting review with the title “Direct-injection mass spectrometry adds the time dimension to (B)VOC analysis” that was recently published in Trends in Analytical Chemistry 30 (7) (2011).
We at IONICON are often asked what actually the differences and in our case, the benefits of the PTR-MS technology compared to other, similar methods are. Not only a technical comparison is of interest but also feedback from studies in the field covering various applications is in high demand by people contacting us.
For me the advantages of PTR-MS are obvious and I also know which position our technology and products have in the market, but of course it is more credible if an article in a peer-reviewed journal has such a comparison as topic and gives the reader a chance to follow a well grounded debate.
The synopsis of this article with regards to PTR-MS and my conclusion, I would summarize as follows only mentioning the most intriguing arguments:
Conference and events schedule – UPDATE
After the first quarter of 2011 ended very successfully for us with our exhibition stand being crowded at conferences and trade shows like Pittcon® (read the blog entry), it is time to give you an update on what will be going on in the second and third quarter of 2011. We sponsor some very interesting conferences and will be present with our booth, lectures, posters and of course…PTR-MS instruments.
Visit us at these events:
- 5. – 9. June 2011: 59th ASMS Conference
- 13.-28. September 2011: 3rd iLEAPS Conference
- 27.-30. September 2011: 13th Weurman Flavour Research Symposium
- 19.-21. October 2011: 2nd MS Food Day
This is only a small selection of conferences we are already preparing for but watch out for more updates coming up at our Conference & Events Schedule page. Stop by our booth and experience real-time ultra-sensitive trace gas analysis.
Interview (in German) with the IONICON CEO, broadcasted at an Austrian radio station
Stream a recent interview (in German) of our CEO, Dr. Tilmann Märk that was broadcasted on June 11, 2010 at an Austrian radio station. The topics addressed were the detection and identification of explosives and other illicit substances, assessment of origin of food, monitoring of the atmosphere and other interesting applications of PTR-MS…
