Food-grade CO2 analysis: new PTR-TOF 1000 ultra application

Real-time Quantification of Impurities in Food-Grade CO2 with PTR-MS

The modern food and beverage industry is not imaginable without food-grade carbon (CO2) dioxide. Its many uses include carbonation of beverages, and as packaging and cooling gas.

Pittcon 2017 poster: Real-time Quantification of Impurities in Food-Grade CO2 with PTR-MS.

In this study we investigate volatile organic impurities emerging from a food-grade certified (European standard E 290) carbon dioxide cylinder using a PTR-TOF 1000 ultra.

The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra is a compact PTR-TOFMS equipped with the ION-BOOSTER funnel technology. Its high sensitivity make the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra a perfect tool for applications where complex matrices have to be rapidly analyzed. One such example application is quality assurance in the food and flavor industry.

Pittcon week 2017: Real-Time Air Analysis with PTR-MS

An exciting program around IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology

Lukas Märk and Todd Rogers explaining the unique benefits of PTR-MS

Pittcon 2017 attracted thousands of scientists and industry decision makers who discovered the latest trends in laboratory instruments, one of which being the new PTR-TOF 4000.

We showcased our new real-time trace VOC analyzer at our booth and attracted the crowds. Our team was supported by our US distributor Trace VOC.

“The Air We Breathe In & Out at Pittcon”, presented by Jens Herbig

We also hosted a Pittcon expo live demo that was filled to the very last seat available. At “The Air We Breathe In & Out at Pittcon” attendees could get their breath analyzed in real-time or have a look at the VOC composition in the expo hall. They also learned about air composition and VOCs in general as well as how to analyze them. (more…)

Join us for Pittcon 2017 and PTR-TOF 4000 live demos

Visit our booth # 1622, lecture & posters in Chicago, March 6-9.

After New Orleans and Atlanta, Pittcon is back to Chicago. The “windy city” is a welcome stop on the conference schedule and will be host of the event at the beginning of March, aiming to attract thousands of scientists from all over the world.

Automated VOC detection with “AME” monitoring software at PTR-TOF 4000

This year we will demonstrate our new PTR-TOF 4000 and an advanced software user-interface that makes ultra-sensitive real-time trace gas analysis as easy as surfing the web on your tablet. Come to our booth # 1622 and experience a live demo, with hands-on and the analysis of show-floor air, your breath or other samples that you bring.

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?

For the first time we combine high-sensitivity with a high mass resolving power in a small and lightweight PTR-TOFMS.

The PTR-TOF 4000 features our new hexapole ION-GUIDE technology and a novel high-resolution TOF. (more…)

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.
