IONICON has exhibited PTR-MS technology at this year’s ACS Spring Meeting in New Orleans for the first time.
The Spring Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has taken place in New Orleans from April 7-11, 2013. It was the first ACS event we contributed to and besides showcasing PTR-MS products, our scientists also presented several posters and one talk on hot topics of PTR-MS-related applications and current developments.
„Ultra-Sensitive Solutions for Real-Time Trace Gas Analysis”
That’s what we aim for and what we promise to deliver!
Such a pledge requires us to use multiple technologies and methods in order to address various areas of applications where we provide services to you.

The prestigious Global Medical Discovery website has selected to feature a cutting edge PTR-MS application in biotechnology.
Ionimed is conducting research to develop novel solutions for the monitoring of fermentation processes in biotechnology based on PTR-MS. This is done under the auspices of the Austrian center of industrial biotechnology (ACIB), with academic partners (BOKU, Vienna) as well as large biopharmaceutical companies, such as Sandoz and Böhringer Ingelheim.
A break-through in biotech research has been published recently – as we have earlier reported on this blog. Several national Austrian and German media have reported on this story (in German): not only in the scientific media, such as the blog Medizin-Aspekte, but also the Austrian daily newspaper Der Standard.
Now this publication has attracted more international attention and has been selected by Global Medical Discovery; a website which selects and features breaking news about the latest scientific discoveries in this field.
RJ Lee Group equips mobile lab with IONICON PTR-MS and provides rapid, mobile monitoring of organic contamination and leaks caused by hurricane “Sandy”
RJ Lee Group, Inc.‘s mobile laboratory is now available to aid in assessing and monitoring organic contaminants that may have occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Using an IONICON High-Sensitivity PTR-MS instrument, RJ Lee Group can support investigations associated with suspect odors, volatile toxic compounds and organic chemical releases to the environment. The mobile laboratory can be deployed directly to sensitive areas where contamination, odors, and suspected damage exist and deliver real-time VOC monitoring data, including investigations into:
- Flooding into confined building spaces, tunnels, and storage locations
- Damaged chemical storage, transportation, and chemical use facilities or other areas of chemical and hazardous material release
- Hospitals, transportation hubs, stadiums, and other high-traffic areas where large-scale public exposure to VOCs is possible

IONICON hands-on PTR-MS 2013
Join us for the comprehensive biennial IONICON PTR-MS training seminar taking place in connection to the 6th International PTR-MS Conference!
Wednesday (check-in) 30 January -
Saturday (check-out/transfer to conference venue) 2 February 2013.
Location: Alphotel Innsbruck, Austria
Training schedule of hands-on PTR-MS 2013:
31 January and 1 February
In the morning of both training days short theoretical refresher lectures by a selected IONICON specialist will be held.
Afterwards small groups will get training on different PTR-MS instruments covering maintenance issues, calibration, software and analytical topics.
You will be able to pick your favorite topics and create your own workshop schedule. The number of people per group headed by our experts is strictly limited in order for you to acquire in-depths knowledge of every topic and interact with your trainers.
Sign-up now and save! (early-bird rate until 30 September 2012)
Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to meet colleagues from all over the world, get to know the IONICON team and experience an exciting two-days program full of expert advise in a relaxed atmosphere.
Save the dates and get prepared for the 6th International PTR-MS Conference and IONICON “hands-on PTR-MS” training seminar
The International PTR-MS Conference will take place for the 6th time aiming to continue the success story of this event series. The conference is organized by the Institute of Ion Physics and Applied Physics of the University of Innsbruck and sponsored by IONICON and IONIMED. In connection to the 6th International PTR-MS Conference, the IONICON “hands-on PTR-MS” training seminar and workshop will be held, giving all participants the opportunity to combine a PTR-MS training with academic networking and new insights from research.
I am glad to announce that the preliminary dates for the PTR-MS Conference 2011 and hands-on PTR-MS 2011 are now set.
Please add these dates to your agenda:
hands-on PTR-MS: 30 January – 2 February 2013
PTR-MS Conference: 2 – 9 February 2013
More information such as the program, registration deadlines and prices will become available soon…
Article in ACS’ Analytical Chemistry journal: Discovery of a new dimension in selectivity for PTR-MS
We have already successfully demonstrated the ability of PTR-MS to detect common threat agents such as CWAs, TICs and Explosives in earlier studies. Using high-resolution IONICON PTR-TOFMS series instruments an unambiguous identification of most known substances has already been proven.
A new study shows that another potentially useful procedure for the elimination of false positives with regard to the detection of TNT using PTR-MS technology was found:
