CHARON PTR-TOF and new technologies for increased PTR-TOF performance

Our team was able to meet many of you at the ASMS meeting and our science presentations. Those of you who didn’t make it to the conference or our posters, are now able to pull a copy from our website.

See what’s coming up and get inspired from our innovations for trace organic detection.

ASMS 2017 poster: CHARON PTR-TOFMS for online aerosol monitoring

CHARON PTR-ToF-MS: a new method for real-time measurement and molecular-level characterization of submicron particulate organic matter

Soon this powerful add-on will become available as an upgrade exclusively for selected IONICON PTR-TOF instruments. Expect nothing less than a revolution of existing methods for on-line and real-time characterization of organic particulate matter: measure aerosols directly with your IONICON PTR-TOFMS! (more…)

IONICON innovations showcased at the 65th annual ASMS meeting 2017

Real-time analysis of aerosols with CHARON PTR-TOFMS and modular X2 technologies for PTR-TOF performance enhancement

At the beginning of June it’ll be time to gather for the 65th annual ASMS conference on mass spectrometry and allied topics. IONICON R&D scientists will be there to present our most recent innovations and allow sneak-peeks on upcoming products.

Among the most important technologies is our modular “ION-BOOSTER” ion funnel in combination with our new hexapole ION-GUIDE. This “X2” set-up yields an incredible performance and allows the user to boost the IONICON PTR-TOF’s performance with push-button simplicity. Based on these achievements, the new high-resolution PTR-TOF 6000 X2 has just recently been launched as our new flagship PTR-TOF instrument for ultimate performance.


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!

60th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics

IONICON innovations are presented at ASMS this week – download our posters here!

If you are visiting this year’s ASMS annual meeting in Vancouver, you will be able to learn about pioneering developments we kept ourselves busy with, the last couple of months.

If you, like myself, don’t have the chance to attend the conference this year, I am sure you are having the same feeling – we are missing a great event in a wonderful city. The only relief  I can offer is posting our scientific contributions here.

Come and join us for the poster presentations on Wednesday or download information about our recent innovative achievements below:

WP32 – Instrumentation: New Concepts
Slots: 698 and 699, Wednesday, Poster 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)

Have a safe trip, enjoy ASMS or, like myself, have a good time in office!

Detection of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) with IONICON PTR-MS

Application case study and article in press: Isocyanates and Polychlorinated Biphenyls real-time detection using PTR-MS

Isocyanates are highly reactive species widely used in industry. They can cause irritation of the eyes, trigger asthma, etc. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were widely used in electrical equipment like capacitors and transformers in the last century and are still present in the environment today. PCBs are known to cause cancer and to affect the immune, reproductive, nervous and endocrine systems.

Therefore, there is a need for a simple, rapid and reliable analytical method for the detection of traces of isocyanates and of PCBs. IONICON PTR-MS technology seems to be an ideal method for rapid screening for TICs which we demonstrated in a recently published article:


Pittcon 2012 review: a great show for IONICON

At Pittcon 2012 we were able to increase attendance at our booth and posters. Now we are looking forward to Pittcon 2013 in Philadelphia!

From March 11 to 15 Orlando, FL was once again hosting Pittcon with its more than 15,000 attendees populating Orlando’s International Drive, Orange County Convention Center and of course the show floor where we had our IONICON booth.

We participated in the Conference with numerous scientific contributions such as posters, but also in networking sessions highlighting the scientific character of Pittcon Conference and Exposition. This year we increased our booth space in order to more conveniently demonstrate PTR-MS to interested attendees (e.g. performing live breath-testing or analysis of ambient air). Moreover a dedicated meeting area was provided for comfortably discussing advantages of our real-time direct injection mass spectrometry systems in specific application areas.


New IONICON event website for Pittcon 2012

Find all information and details of our participation at Pittcon on a single page

Pittcon® is less than two months away and we’re in the middle of our preparations for the most important laboratory science US show. Looking at the success we had last year in Atlanta at Pittcon, we decided to double our exhibit space and this year we will present you more innovations than ever in a larger booth.

Be sure to visit us at booth # 3703 where you can get in touch with our experts and experience the IONICON PTR-QMS 300, N.A.S.E., the new IONIMED BET sampler and much more as individual live demonstrations. We also have scientific contributions such as posters and talks in special sessions.

You can now find more detailed information about our Pittcon program on our new dedicated event Website: schedule and appointment with us, visit our poster presentations, talks and our booth. Bookmark the site and enjoy exclusive downloads after the show such as reprints of our scientific poster presentations and other useful material.
