Monitoring exhaust gas from combustion engines, emitting a large number of different compounds and with rapidly changing concentrations due to variations in operating conditions, necessitates an instrument that measures in real-time and with high sensitivity – an IONICON PTR-TOFMS.
The ultra-fast analysis capabilities of IONICON PTR-TOF instruments are essential for eddy covariance flux measurements, allowing to study deposition and emission rates of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs).
IONICON PTR-MS systems are well established tools in environmental research. Their fast response-times and ultra-low detection limits help researchers all over the planet to better understand the world we live in.
Aroma real-time quantification with PTR-MS. Rapid screening for complex aroma systems. Rich chemical fingerprints due to soft ionization. Real-time sampling: high throughput. Ideal for chemometric data-mining methods.
Room-air VOC detection and monitoring. Measurement of most common VOCs causing smells or health effects. Real-time monitoring of emissions related to the Sick Building Syndrome. Ozone induced reactions in aircraft cabins.
On-line Monitoring of Bioprocesses. PTR-MS systems can be used to gather highly relevant process related information in biopharmaceutical fermentations from analyzing volatile metabolites in the fermenters off-gas.
Illicit substances real-time detection with IONICON PTR-MS. PTR-MS combines all features that are needed for analyzing dangerous and illicit substances like explosives, chemical warfare agents (CWA), toxic industrial chemicals (TIC) and drugs.
