PTR-MS on Customs Detection Technologies Workshop

IONICON has participated in the 1st Workshop on Customs Detection Technologies. We have gathered exciting insight and presented an interesting showcase for drug detection with PTR-MS.

Coca-Cola headspace, blue signal limonene, green signal GBL spiked in drink.

The 1st Workshop on Customs Detection Technologies has taken place in October 2014 in Budapest, Hungary. Representatives of the customs of European countries and those of other invited countries have met with scientists of customs laboratories and representatives of the industry. PTR-MS is an emerging technology for safety, security and customs applications. We gladly followed the invitation to present PTR-MS in a talk and in life demonstrations at the exhibition.

Pittcon, the world’s largest annual premier conference and exposition on laboratory science, is just around the corner and this is the moment to prepare for before, during and after the show!

BEFORE

If you got a flight, a hotel room and registered for Pittcon, you have the most important assets in your pocket. But did you already plan your days on the show floor? Now is’s time to start thinking about companies to visit, make appointments with exhibitors and check the online exhibitor planner for booth numbers (ours is # 1619).

Pittcon is also hosting a noteworthy technical program. More than 2,000 technical sessions provide easy access to updates on the latest research and developments in your field by leading scientists. Use the Pittcon agenda builder to create your individual schedule, but don’t forget to conduct a search for “PTR-MS” when you develop yours.

Have a look at our Pittcon event website to learn more about our offer, the scientific program and how we contribute to it. We summed it all up for you on one page!

19th IMSC 2012 – International Mass Spectrometry Conference in Kyoto, Japan

Visit our booth No. 9 this week and poster presentations on Tuesday 18 September!

Every three years, the International Mass Spectrometry Conference (IMSC) attracts many scientists from all over the planet. This year the IMSC in its 19th edition takes place in Kyoto, Japan, the first time ever out of Europe which is an excellent opportunity to visit Japan with all its beauty and not less than 17 UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites located in Kyoto.

IONICON and SHORELINE, our distribution partner for Japan present innovations to you at our booth No. 9 and in Tuesday’s poster session (event hall):

From conventional Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrometry (PTR-MS) to a universal trace gas analyzer

More than one order of magnitude higher sensitivities with Proton-Transfer-Reaction Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (PTR-TOFMS)

We are looking forward to see you soon!

Discounted early-bird registration for hands-on PTR-MS 2013 now open

Pittcon 2012 review: a great show for IONICON

At Pittcon 2012 we were able to increase attendance at our booth and posters. Now we are looking forward to Pittcon 2013 in Philadelphia!

From March 11 to 15 Orlando, FL was once again hosting Pittcon with its more than 15,000 attendees populating Orlando’s International Drive, Orange County Convention Center and of course the show floor where we had our IONICON booth.

We participated in the Conference with numerous scientific contributions such as posters, but also in networking sessions highlighting the scientific character of Pittcon Conference and Exposition. This year we increased our booth space in order to more conveniently demonstrate PTR-MS to interested attendees (e.g. performing live breath-testing or analysis of ambient air). Moreover a dedicated meeting area was provided for comfortably discussing advantages of our real-time direct injection mass spectrometry systems in specific application areas.

IONICON is a proud sponsor of Gordon Research Conferences

We support young researchers at two GRCs in 2012

The Gordon Research Conferences provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.

Two GRCs closely related to our own scientific research and PTR-MS are now supported by IONICON in order to give young researchers the opportunity to present their work to the scientific community.

These days the GRC for Plant Volatiles takes place in Ventura, CA, January 29 – February 3, 2012 and has as topics: Ecology, Biosynthesis, Regulation and Animal Perception of Floral and Vegetative Volatiles, Plus their Roles in Human Flavor and Agriculture.
