Taking CHARON PTR-TOF to the Sky

At the Frontier of Airborne Research aboard NASA’s Flying Laboratory

Using the opportunity provided by NASA’s Student Airborne Research Program (SARP) we gave wings to our newly developed CHARON aerosol inlet. In cooperation with the University of Oslo our team combined CHARON and a custom built PTR-TOF 4000 instrument.

“Business Class” for our airworthy CHARON PTR-TOF 4000, monitoring VOCs & aerosol in real-time.

Airworthiness requires withstanding of heavy G-forces, coping with pressure changes and most importantly being fail safe. Therefore unique modifications to CHARON have been made and thoroughly tested before getting airborne. (more…)

hands-on PTR-MS 2017 for IMPACT ESR students

A week of training and experts’ lectures at “the home of PTR-MS”

IMPACT “hands-on” PTR-MS training

Our team prepared intensively for a week of training that we proudly hosted at IONICON a couple of days ago. We conceived lectures and workshops, prepared documentation and polished up our PTR-TOFMS instruments for Early-Stage-Researchers (ESRs) from the Horizon 2020 ITN project “IMPACT”. The ESRs were visiting us for an intensive training on PTR-MS, since it is one of the leading SCIMS (soft chemical-ionisation mass-spectrometry) technologies and we are the market leader in this field.
