Ionicon Launches the new PTR-QMS 500 series
Ionicon is presenting the new PTR-QMS-500 series to the analytical and laboratory market: highest performance and lowest detection limits (< 1 pptv) for VOCs detection and monitoring based on Proton Transfer Reaction - Mass Spectrometry. The PTR-QMS 500 series is the 4th generation of PTR-MS systems.
The High-Sensitivity PTR-QMS 500 and its sister instrument are the successor of the PTR-MS instrument series, the High-Sensitivity PTR-MS and Standard PTR-MS.
Within this new series the size and weight of the instruments is reduced, but nevertheless improved maintainability. A touchscreen display is now common to all instruments, a new heating chamber layout (easier access to ion source and space for extensions) is implemented and new control electronics (fully software controlled) as well as more interfaces (I/Os) are available. Most outstanding however is the new Ionicon Ultra-Pure ion source that delivers a precursor ion intensity that was never seen before and therefore the High-Sensitivity PTR-QMS 500 continuously quantifies VOCs in lowest possible concentrations touching even the ppqv-regime.
