IONICON innovations showcased at the 65th annual ASMS meeting 2017

Real-time analysis of aerosols with CHARON PTR-TOFMS and modular X2 technologies for PTR-TOF performance enhancement

At the beginning of June it’ll be time to gather for the 65th annual ASMS conference on mass spectrometry and allied topics. IONICON R&D scientists will be there to present our most recent innovations and allow sneak-peeks on upcoming products.

Among the most important technologies is our modular “ION-BOOSTER” ion funnel in combination with our new hexapole ION-GUIDE. This “X2” set-up yields an incredible performance and allows the user to boost the IONICON PTR-TOF’s performance with push-button simplicity. Based on these achievements, the new high-resolution PTR-TOF 6000 X2 has just recently been launched as our new flagship PTR-TOF instrument for ultimate performance.

Launching the revolutionary PTR-TOF 6000 X2 trace VOC analyzer

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.

New PTR-TOF 6000 X2: incl. hexapole ION-GUIDE & ION-BOOSTER funnel

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.

Pittcon week 2017: Real-Time Air Analysis with PTR-MS

An exciting program around IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology

Lukas Märk and Todd Rogers explaining the unique benefits of PTR-MS

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.

“The Air We Breathe In & Out at Pittcon”, presented by Jens Herbig

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. (more…)

The new PTR-TOF 4000 trace VOC analyzer: no compromises.

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?

Real-time PTR-MS meets autosampler – high throughput VOC analysis

IONICON autosampler for automated head-space analysis with PTR-MS

The real-time capability of a PTR-MS gas analyzer is typically utilized to continuously monitor trace VOC concentrations – but not only. Some users appreciate the enormous speed of a PTR-MS to rapidly analyze discrete samples in seconds, where a manual sample provision can be the bottleneck.

IONICON Autosampler for PTR-MS

This has become greatly facilitated with the new IONICON autosampler for PTR-MS. Analyzing hundreds of sample vials in an automated manner not only provides high data quality but also enables an ultra-high throughput, drastically reducing processing cost for larger batches of samples.

Modular, lightweight and small customized PTR-TOF 1000

Reduction of volume & weight by nearly 50%.

The IONICON engineering team builds our bestselling PTR-MS instruments all year round in small serial production, but also works out concepts for and realizes customized instrument projects.

IONICON engineers with a challenging project.

An ambitious project for our engineers: weight & size cut objective nearly 50%.

More than a dozen of PTR-MS instruments have already been fitted into special racks, designed for the use in aircraft, aboard ships, helicopters or cars and trucks. Each unique and one of a kind, constructed with the skill of our engineers according to our customers’ needs.

We are proud to share this recent story with you where we accepted a particularly challenging assignment. (more…)

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.
