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. (more…)

PTR-TOF in the spotlight at IABR Breath Summit 2016

IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology has become the leading method for real-time breath gas analysis.

The International Association for Breath Research (IABR) held its annual summit conference at the renowned ETH Zürich in Switzerland. Between September 14 – 16, 2016, the latest scientific results in breath research were presented. In 12 talks researchers featured PTR-MS as their tool of choice for real-time breath gas analysis.

The popularity of PTR-MS, and especially PTR-TOF, reflects the various advantages these instruments offer for breath gas research. The Time-of-Flight (TOF) system analyses the complete ionized spectrum in a fraction of a second with a resolution sufficient to resolve isobaric compounds. The high sensitivity allows the detection of ppt-concentrations from a single exhalation. (more…)

A breath summit and an atmospheric chemistry conference – both communities benefit from PTR-TOFMS and are supported by IONICON

logo_IABR_2016Visit us at the IABR breath summit 2016, at the ETH Zurich in two weeks and experience ultra-sensitive, high-resolution breath gas analysis by PTR-TOFMS! This in combination with the IONICON BET-med sampling interface that is ISO 60601 certified and ready for use in a clinical setting, make our instrument the preferred solution for real-time breath gas analysis.

We’re a proud sponsor for the IABR series of events and will offer live demos during the conference.

New PTR-TOF 1000 ultra launched at Pittcon 2016

Up to 10x increased sensitivity with the new ION-BOOSTER technology.

Our real-time VOC analyzers are known for their exceptional sensitivity. A higher sensitivity not only improves the limit of detection but also allows for a higher measurement frequency at a given signal-to-noise ratio. For real-time VOC analyzers this can have a beneficial implication when investigating highly dynamic processes such as e.g. flux measurements.

hands-on PTR-MS 2016 and the 2nd IONICON User-Day – a review

Attendance at an all-time high for the two major PTR-MS community events

hands-on-PTR-MS_logo2016In the second week of February 2016, the comprehensive PTR-MS learning & training event “hands-on PTR-MS” attracted nearly 50 participants from all over the world. We were unable to accept all applications due to our strict policy for small training group size in the workshops, our customers could choose from. Nevertheless, we are glad that we could attract and accommodate a record-breaking number of attendees to our PTR-MS events 2016.

Users at all levels, from beginners to experts, working at different PTR-MS instruments gathered at the “home of PTR-MS”, IONICON’s hometown Innsbruck, Austria for an intensive two-days seminar. A combination of lectures and “hands-on” program was provided where an interaction with the IONICON team and among PTR-MS users was facilitated, covering various highly relevant topics. (more…)
