Launching our new ultra-sensitive PTR-QiTOF trace VOC analyzer

Welcome to the future: 25x more sensitive, we proudly present our new flagship PTR-TOFMS instrument: the IONICON PTR-QiTOF.

PTR_QiTOF_webFeaturing a Quadrupole ion guide (Qi), the PTR-QiTOF achieves a performance, no other commercial PTR-TOFMS system has ever been able to demonstrate before.

Expect up to 25x more sensitivity, one order of magnitude lower detection limit and 20% higher mass resolution than the world’s current bestselling and up to now also best-performing PTR-TOFMS instrument – our PTR-TOF 8000.

The market-leading specifications of the new PTR-QiTOF are a result of our continuous investment in innovation and herald a new generation of IONICON PTR-TOFMS technology:

ptr-Qitof_webUsing a specially crafted high-resolution time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometer including the new Quadrupole ion guide (Qi) in combination with the refined IONICON PTR technology, the PTR-QiTOF achieves a mass resolution of more than 6,000 (up to 10,000) m/Δm FWHM, a limit of detection well below 1 pptv (in 30 sec), and an unmatched sensitivity of more than 1,000 (up to 4,500) cps/ppbv.

This boost in sensitivity is especially beneficial for cutting edge applications like eddy-covariance flux measurements, where ultra-low VOC concentrations have to be quantified with more than 10 Hz. The high time-resolution and sensitivity of IONICON PTR-TOF instruments enable flux measurements of biogenic VOCs, providing new insights to our understanding of the atmospheric VOC budget by studying active atmosphere-ecosystem exchange of a vast number of BVOCs.
