Benefits for High-Resolution IONICON PTR-TOF for Food & Flavor Science

Analysis of Complex Flavors in Real-Time with Ultra-Low Detection Limits

For many years PTR-MS instruments are considered a gold-standard in many applications when it gets to the quantitative online analysis of very low concentrated VOCs without sample preparation. Among the early adopters of this unique technology that was commercialized by our company back in 1998, were researchers interested in aroma release monitoring and the direct analysis of flavors in real-time while consumers were enjoying the products. This lead to an early breakthrough of PTR-MS in food & flavor science.

Application note: Analysis of Complex Flavors with PTR-TOF 6000 X2

Now more and more PTR-MS instruments based on time-of-flight mass spectrometers are used by our customers who benefit from the high-resolution and sensitivity as well as a real sub-pptv detection limit that e.g. our current flagship model PTR-TOF 6000 X2 offers.

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.

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.
