Quantitatively detects organic sub-Ám particulate matter as well as particulate ammonium and nitrate at single digit ng/m│ mass concentration levels in real-time.

CHARON PTR-TOFMS is an on-line analytical technique that characterizes the molecular composition of sub-Ám organic particles on a chemical composition level at a one-minute time-resolution. The CHARON particle inlet consists of a honeycomb activated charcoal denuder that efficiently adsorbs organic gases and transmits particles, a high-pressure aerodynamic lens system that collimates and extracts sub-Ám particles, and a thermo-desorber that evaporates non-refractory organic particulate matter at moderate temperatures of 100-160░C and reduced pressures of a few mbar. 

These organics are subsequently analyzed as gas-phase analytes with one of IONICONĺs high-resolution PTR-TOFMS instruments. By coupling the CHARON inlet to a PTR-TOFMS, the VOC inlet remains fully operational. An automated valve system allows for scheduled switching between gas- and particle-phase measurements as well as zeroing of the particle inlet.


Compact IONICON High-Performance PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer

Premium performance PTR-TOFMS
Detection limit: < 1 pptv
Sensitivity: > 1000 cps/ppbv
Mass Resolution: > 6000


Compact IONICON High-Resolution PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer

Our smallest and lightest high-resolution PTR-TOFMS.

Detection limit: < 5 pptv
Sensitivity: > 200 cps/ppbv
Mass Resolution: > 4000

The new PTR-TOF 4000 is a compact, ultra-sensitive & high-resolution IONICON PTR-TOF real-time trace VOC analyzer.

It is our first high-resolution PTR-TOFMS built into the same small and lightweight layout known from our successful PTR-TOF 1000 series.


Compact IONICON ultra-sensitive PTR-TOF-MS- Trace VOC Analyzer

The smallest, lightest and most affordable PTR-TOFMS now is ultra-sensitive.
Sensitivity: > 400 cps/ppbv
Resolution: > 1500
LoD: < 5 pptv

The PTR-TOF 1000 ultra is the new benchmark for a robust and compact real-time volatile organic compounds (VOC) analyzer. Based on the successful PTR-TOF 1000 platform, the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra offers all benefits of an affordable, small and light PTR-TOFMS instrument, but in combination with an outstanding sensitivity, previously only available from top-of-the-market instruments.


Compact IONICON PTR-TOF-MS - Trace VOC Analyzer

The smallest, lightest and most affordable time of flight based PTR-MS.
Sensitivity: > 40 cps/ppbv (Benzene)
Resolution: > 1500
LoD: < 10 pptv

The instrument demonstrated its reliability and robustness but also its remarkable technical abilities and speed during various international campaigns (e.g. NASA's DISCOVER-AQ) and is ideally suited for analysis of VOCs at a very high time resolution. It comes with a fully integrated IONICON data acquisition and data treatment software suite.
