2015 Golden Gas Award Winner

The IONICON fastGC is the winner of the Gases & Instrumentation International Magazine’s 2015 Golden Gas Award in the category Gas Chromatography.

From being G&I’s product of the month last December it took our new fastGC only a couple of months to score again.

The Golden Gas Awards are conducted by G&I each year as a tribute to the technology of gases.


fastGC PTR-TOF – for the best of both worlds

IONICON has developed a fastGC add-on that combines near real-time GC with soft PTR ionization and high resolution TOF.

The new fastGC module adds an optional chemical separation step before the real-time PTR-TOFMS analysis. This combines the complimentary features of gas chromatography with real-time trace gas analysis offering intriguing new possibilities. Developed as an add-on for IONICONs PTR-TOF instruments, the fastGC comprises a short, commercial GC column with an innovative heating concept for ultra-fast heating and cooling rates.
