Ionicon Analytik have introduced the next generation of their high-end proton transfer reaction-mass spectrometry (PTR-MS) instruments for real-time VOC monitoring.
Mass spectrometry PTR-MS
There are many reasons for quantifying VOCs in air, from investigating pollution to diagnosis of diseases in humans. PTR-MS has many advantages for this, not least in speed and ability to provide an online analysis. It is a relatively young technique, but has a range of applications from botany and medicine through to industrial process monitoring, security screening, environmental analysis and food science.
