Prepare for 2020 with Pittcon, Analytica, EGU and ASMS coming up

Showcasing PTR-TOF innovations and ioniTOF products at major events

We’re getting closer to the end of 2019, which so far has been a great year for us. Growing business, many new colleagues in our team and an expansion of our headquarter’s office space in the pursuit of further increasing our outreach with analytical instrumentation for research and industry, TOF-MS systems and analytical services.

Before we will go into a short holiday break over XMAS, we would like to point out a few major events in 2020 which you should consider visiting:

Pittcon 2020: booth #1718 at Pittcon 2020, 1. – 5. March 2020, Chicago, USA

Analytica 2020booth #530B in hall A2, 31. March – 3. April 2020, Munich, Germany
Your ticket for Analytica will be on us! Contact us and we’ll have you on our guest list. (more…)

Breath Summit 2019 Review and Crowd Breath Analysis Experiment

IONICON PTR-TOFMS illustrates indoor air chemistry and crowd breath

In September the International Association for Breath Research (IABR)’s Breath Summit 2019 took place in Leicestershire, UK. IONICON participated as an exhibitor and with scientific contributions, also conducting a crowd breath experiment. Numerous excellent talks covered the whole spectrum of breath analysis could be enjoyed by the attendees.

Several presented PTR-TOF as their main tool for research, such as VOC analysis – a trailblazer in translational research, by Wolfram Miekisch, Beyond PTR – Additional ionization modes in PTR-TOFMS and their use in breath gas analysis, by Jens Herbig and Real‐time breath analysis during exhaustive exercise on a cycle ergometer, by Giovanni Pugliese.

IONICON PTR-TOF were not only presented on slides but also live at the IONICON booth. On a PTR-TOF 6000X2 with a BET breath sampling inlet participants could test their breath and experience the vast amount of data real-time breath analysis can reveal from a single exhalation with high resolution and sensitivity.

The 8th International PTR-MS Conference, Innsbruck, Austria – a review

Must-attend science forum attracted over 100 conferees from 18 nations

At the beginning of February 2019, the International PTR-MS Conference was held for the 8th time. Ever since the first International PTR-MS Conference in 2003, organized by the Institute of Ion Physics of the University of Innsbruck and sponsored by IONICON, the event became a fixed point in the scientific agenda of many of our international peers.

Talks at the 8th International PTR-MS Conference took place in a historic venue of the University of Innsbruck

Since then the conference evolved, attracting more and more participants filling larger venues. If at the very beginning technology enthusiasts and early-adopters were gathering to exchange and network on their experiences with the first IONICON Quadrupole-PTR-MS instruments, the meeting soon became the PTR-MS event for all IONICON instrument users. The program comprised a selection of parallel sessions covering the very broad field of applications that modern PTR-TOF instruments are successfully used in. (more…)

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.

analytica 2018 with a new visitor-record and an award for IONICON

Laborpraxis application award 2018 goes to CHARON for PTR-TOFMS

Last week the 26th analytica trade show and conference attracted some 35,800 international visitors to Munich, breaking all previous attendance records.

Exactly 50 years after analytica was launched, the anniversary event was again a perfect stage for IONICON to show-case our latest innovations, especially since this year we also have an anniversary: we will soon celebrate 20 years IONICON!

analytica 2018 held yet another very positive surprise for us. On Tuesday, in the evening of the first bustling show day, we were invited for an award ceremony of the LABORPRAXIS application awards 2018. We knew that we were shortlisted together with our colleagues from Pfeiffer Vacuum and Thermo Fisher Scientific for the category of water- and environmental analytics, but that we would be leaving the party as winner we would’t have ever dreamed of.  (more…)
