For IONICON innovation is our most valuable asset that is being cultivated in all our activities. When we initiated the development of the LCU, Lukas Fischer had just started as a Diploma student in the company. “At the beginning it looked like a challenging project but we had no idea how many innovative steps were necessary to make the LCU the product it is today.”, says Jens Herbig, CTO of IONICON. The challenges were a perfect match for Lukas’ innovative approach. The development of the active Liquid Flow Controller is only one example.

HPZAG: new zero-air generator for LCU

With a new add-on, IONICON’s LCU has become an advanced, all-in-one calibration device for trace gas analyzers.

High Pressure Zero Air GeneratorWe at IONICON believe that trace gas calibration is an essential part to support our claim to sell highest accuracy trace gas analyzers. Thus, we have invested in developing trace calibration systems for many years. With the now released high-pressure 0-air generator add-on, IONICON’s LCU has become an advanced, all-in-one calibration device for trace gas analyzers.

Live demonstrations at Pittcon 2013 – a huge interest in IONICON PTR-MS

Visitors were curious to test their breath in real-time and get some insight on the air they inhale at the show floor

Pittcon 2013 took place in Philadelphia for the very first time and attracted  more than 18,000 attendees, 1,011 exhibiting companies from 28 countries and of course also us. We at IONICON showcased our most recent products such as the Liquid Calibration Unit (LCU), the IONIMED BET-med breath sampling inlet, and a full range of  Trace Gas Analyzers based on PTR-MS and SRI-MS technology.

We feel that a live demonstration of our PTR-MS instruments is the best way to show their outstanding capabilities. Many visitors were attracted by the chance of doing real-time breath analysis and experienced the benefits of a quantitative and fast response, having a PTR-QMS 300 instrument connected to a special BET-med breath sampling inlet.
