IONICON Analytik, an Austrian-based trace gas analysis specialist, has celebrated an historic milestone after selling its 300th instrument based on its proprietary combination of proton transfer reaction and mass spectrometer (PTR-MS) technology.
PTR-MS enables real-time monitoring of hundreds of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as acetone, methanol, ethanol and xylene. The technology minimises fragmentation, eliminates sample preparation and is highly sensitive.
The 300th PTR-MS device, a PTR-TOF 1000 system analyser, was shipped last month and will be used to analyse chemical pollutants in industrial areas.
IONICON’s CEO Lukas Märk enthused, “Our striving for innovation and excellence is common to all products and services we have delivered through the last 18 years – from the first to the 300th instrument. We will continue to surprise our customers with products that are ahead of its time, for top-notch research and hassle-free routine VOC analysis.”
