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.

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…)

hands-on PTR-MS 2017 for IMPACT ESR students

A week of training and experts’ lectures at “the home of PTR-MS”

IMPACT “hands-on” PTR-MS training

Our team prepared intensively for a week of training that we proudly hosted at IONICON a couple of days ago. We conceived lectures and workshops, prepared documentation and polished up our PTR-TOFMS instruments for Early-Stage-Researchers (ESRs) from the Horizon 2020 ITN project “IMPACT”. The ESRs were visiting us for an intensive training on PTR-MS, since it is one of the leading SCIMS (soft chemical-ionisation mass-spectrometry) technologies and we are the market leader in this field.

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?

PTR-TOF in the spotlight at IABR Breath Summit 2016

IONICON’s PTR-TOFMS technology has become the leading method for real-time breath gas analysis.

The International Association for Breath Research (IABR) held its annual summit conference at the renowned ETH Zürich in Switzerland. Between September 14 – 16, 2016, the latest scientific results in breath research were presented. In 12 talks researchers featured PTR-MS as their tool of choice for real-time breath gas analysis.

The popularity of PTR-MS, and especially PTR-TOF, reflects the various advantages these instruments offer for breath gas research. The Time-of-Flight (TOF) system analyses the complete ionized spectrum in a fraction of a second with a resolution sufficient to resolve isobaric compounds. The high sensitivity allows the detection of ppt-concentrations from a single exhalation. (more…)
