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…)

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!
