Launching the revolutionary PTR-TOF 6000 X2 trace VOC analyzer

Our next generation high-end PTR-TOFMS for real-time VOC monitoring

We proudly present our new premium PTR-TOF trace VOC analyzer. The PTR-TOF 6000 X2 outperforms all preceding systems and true to our mission as market leaders, it features utmost resolution, sensitivity and lowest real-time detection limit, in a robust, transportable platform that is smaller, lighter and even more affordable than our former flagship product. This results in an impressing mass resolution of over 6000 m/Δm and a sensitivity more than 1000 cps/ppbv with a low detection limit of below 1 pptv.

New PTR-TOF 6000 X2: incl. hexapole ION-GUIDE & ION-BOOSTER funnel

The PTR-TOF 6000 X2 is the first instrument in IONICON’s portfolio based on the new high-resolution release of the “ioniTOF” platform and our PTR technology in combination with the new “X2” features. X2 comprises the latest generation of performance tools incl. the ION-BOOSTER funnel as well as the hexapole ION-GUIDE for the ultimate PTR-TOFMS experience.

The new PTR-TOF 4000 trace VOC analyzer: no compromises.

Discover the world’s smallest, commercial high-resolution PTR-TOFMS

You might know that our PTR-TOF 1000 is the smallest and lightest commercial PTR-TOF trace VOC analyzer available. It’s also a huge success for us with over 30 instruments sold since 2014.
You might wonder if we can do even better than this?

Real-time PTR-MS meets autosampler – high throughput VOC analysis

IONICON autosampler for automated head-space analysis with PTR-MS

The real-time capability of a PTR-MS gas analyzer is typically utilized to continuously monitor trace VOC concentrations – but not only. Some users appreciate the enormous speed of a PTR-MS to rapidly analyze discrete samples in seconds, where a manual sample provision can be the bottleneck.

IONICON Autosampler for PTR-MS

This has become greatly facilitated with the new IONICON autosampler for PTR-MS. Analyzing hundreds of sample vials in an automated manner not only provides high data quality but also enables an ultra-high throughput, drastically reducing processing cost for larger batches of samples.

New PTR-TOF 1000 ultra launched at Pittcon 2016

Up to 10x increased sensitivity with the new ION-BOOSTER technology.

Our real-time VOC analyzers are known for their exceptional sensitivity. A higher sensitivity not only improves the limit of detection but also allows for a higher measurement frequency at a given signal-to-noise ratio. For real-time VOC analyzers this can have a beneficial implication when investigating highly dynamic processes such as e.g. flux measurements.

Launching our new ultra-sensitive PTR-QiTOF trace VOC analyzer

Welcome to the future: 25x more sensitive, we proudly present our new flagship PTR-TOFMS instrument: the IONICON PTR-QiTOF.

PTR_QiTOF_webFeaturing a Quadrupole ion guide (Qi), the PTR-QiTOF achieves a performance, no other commercial PTR-TOFMS system has ever been able to demonstrate before.

Expect up to 25x more sensitivity, one order of magnitude lower detection limit and 20% higher mass resolution than the world’s current bestselling and up to now also best-performing PTR-TOFMS instrument – our PTR-TOF 8000.

New IONICON website

Welcome the new www.ionicon.com!

Our presence in the world wide web has always been important for us and we consider it the interface of interaction with you and all interested surfers on the web. Our first website revision dates back to 2002.

In 2006 we created the www.ptrms.com you have been used to for many years. It was engineered completely in-house. In 2010 we moved from ptrms.com to ionicon.com and launched the IONICON blog – the site you’re on now.

In summer 2012 we decided to create a new web presence and this time we wanted to go real pro. And we did: over the last couple of months we were creating, feeding and polishing our new website.

Now we proudly present our brand new www.ionicon.com:

Launch of new ultra-sensitive IONICON PTR-QMS 500 series

A new generation of ultra-sensitive PTR-MS online mass spectrometers for VOC analysis now complements the IONICON PTR-QMS series

We  present the new PTR-QMS-500 series to the analytical and laboratory market: highest performance and lowest detection limits (< 1 pptv) for VOCs detection and monitoring based on Proton Transfer Reaction – Mass Spectrometry. The PTR-QMS 500 series is the 4th generation of PTR-MS systems developed and commercialized by IONICON Analytik GmbH, Innsbruck Austria.

The High-Sensitivity PTR-QMS 500 and its sister instrument, the PTR-QMS 500 are the successors of the world’s bestselling PTR-QMS instrument series, the IONICON High-Sensitivity PTR-MS and Standard PTR-MS. This is the new flagship quadrupole-based PTR-MS series where created a new generation of instruments providing the highest sensitivity available in the PTR-MS market but also incorporating several new features and improvements we developed in response to the needs and feedback of our customers.
