Our next generation high-end PTR-TOFMS for real-time VOC monitoring
We proudly present our new premium PTR-TOF trace VOC analyzer. The PTR-TOF 6000 X2 outperforms all preceding systems and true to our mission as market leaders, it features utmost resolution, sensitivity and lowest real-time detection limit, in a robust, transportable platform that is smaller, lighter and even more affordable than our former flagship product. This results in an impressing mass resolution of over 6000 m/Δm and a sensitivity more than 1000 cps/ppbv with a low detection limit of below 1 pptv.
The PTR-TOF 6000 X2 is the first instrument in IONICON’s portfolio based on the new high-resolution release of the “ioniTOF” platform and our PTR technology in combination with the new “X2” features. X2 comprises the latest generation of performance tools incl. the ION-BOOSTER funnel as well as the hexapole ION-GUIDE for the ultimate PTR-TOFMS experience.
Real-time Quantification of Impurities in Food-Grade CO2 with PTR-MS
The modern food and beverage industry is not imaginable without food-grade carbon (CO2) dioxide. Its many uses include carbonation of beverages, and as packaging and cooling gas. In this study we investigate volatile organic impurities emerging from a food-grade certified (European standard E 290) carbon dioxide cylinder using a PTR-TOF 1000 ultra.
The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra is a compact PTR-TOFMS equipped with the ION-BOOSTER funnel technology. Its high sensitivity make the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra a perfect tool for applications where complex matrices have to be rapidly analyzed. One such example application is quality assurance in the food and flavor industry.
An exciting program around IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology
Pittcon 2017 attracted thousands of scientists and industry decision makers who discovered the latest trends in laboratory instruments, one of which being the new PTR-TOF 4000.
We showcased our new real-time trace VOC analyzer at our booth and attracted the crowds. Our team was supported by our US distributor Trace VOC.
We also hosted a Pittcon expo live demo that was filled to the very last seat available. At “The Air We Breathe In & Out at Pittcon” attendees could get their breath analyzed in real-time or have a look at the VOC composition in the expo hall. They also learned about air composition and VOCs in general as well as how to analyze them. Read the rest of this entry »
A week of training and experts’ lectures at “the home of PTR-MS”
Our team prepared intensively for a week of training that we proudly hosted at IONICON a couple of days ago. We conceived lectures and workshops, prepared documentation and polished up our PTR-TOFMS instruments for Early-Stage-Researchers (ESRs) from the Horizon 2020 ITN project “IMPACT”. The ESRs were visiting us for an intensive training on PTR-MS, since it is one of the leading SCIMS (soft chemical-ionisation mass-spectrometry) technologies and we are the market leader in this field.
Visit our booth # 1622, lecture & posters in Chicago, March 6-9.
After New Orleans and Atlanta, Pittcon is back to Chicago. The “windy city” is a welcome stop on the conference schedule and will be host of the event at the beginning of March, aiming to attract thousands of scientists from all over the world.
This year we will demonstrate our new PTR-TOF 4000 and an advanced software user-interface that makes ultra-sensitive real-time trace gas analysis as easy as surfing the web on your tablet. Come to our booth # 1622 and experience a live demo, with hands-on and the analysis of show-floor air, your breath or other samples that you bring.
Discover the world’s smallest, commercial high-resolution PTR-TOFMS
You might know that our PTR-TOF 1000 is the smallest and lightest commercial PTR-TOF trace VOC analyzer available. It’s also a huge success for us with over 30 instruments sold since 2014.
You might wonder if we can do even better than this?
For the first time we combine high-sensitivity with a high mass resolving power in a small and lightweight PTR-TOFMS.
All abstracts from the 7th International PTR-MS Conference are now online
In early 2016 over 100 IONICON PTR-MS users, scientists, engineers and interested peers gathered in Obergurgl, Austria for the 7th International PTR-MS Conference.
This very successful event organized by the University of Innsbruck every couple of years, attracted the community from all over the world for one week full of science and networking. Latest developments were showcased, results discussed and a bright outlook given for IONICON’s real-time trace gas analyzers. Read the rest of this entry »
