COVID-19: IONICONs are Teleworking and Continuing to Support You

We are monitoring Innsbruck’s air for changes due to Austria’s “shutdown”

IONICON reacted quickly to help containing the Corona virus spread. From day one after the Austrian government has ordered a de facto shutdown including restrictions on the movement of people, most IONICONs work from home to keep our renowned customer support available to you on a real-time basis. Please use email as the preferred way to contact us and allow remote access to your instrument.

Production continues during COVID-19 outbreak – behind closed doors

We are currently taking all required and recommended precautions and continue our production processes with limited and specially briefed staff.

CHARON PTR-TOF 6000 X2 analyzes Innsbruck’s air during the shutdown

Witnessing the shutdown and aiming to document its impact on the environment, we have started analyzing Innsbruck’s air with a CHARON PTR-TOF 6000 X2.

So does the University of Innsbruck, deploying the same type of analyzer at their site. Our goal is to quantify the effects of the shutdown on traffic emissions and the urban air quality.

Stay healthy and take care!

PTR-TOF Training at Its Best – “hands-on” PTR-MS 2019 Events Review

Close to 50 users gathered in Innsbruck for the 2019 PTR-TOF training

We reached out to the steadily growing base of IONICON instrument users in fall 2018, announcing the 2019 “hands-on” PTR-MS training course and the 3rd IONICON User-Day.

The response was overwhelming and after receiving close to 50 applications, we had to close the registration process in order to make sure all our international guests could benefit from the strictly limited hands-on workshop availability. In the meantime, IONICON experts spent countless hours preparing for the training workshops to be conducted in small groups at the beginning of February 2019, in Innsbruck – hometown of PTR-MS.
