Join RJ Lee Group and IONICON on March 10th and 11th for a free 2-day workshop that will focus LOGO-IONICON_NLon the latest Proton Transfer Reaction - Mass Spectrometer technologies, techniques, and applications for air, breath, and gas monitoring of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). We’ve assembled the leaders in air and gas analysis to present their research as well as conduct hands-on demonstrations. This workshop will:

  • Present the latest PTR technologies including the new Time-Of-Flight 1000 series,

  • Share the latest work on breath analysis, explosives detection, atmospheric science, and environmental monitoring and agricultural applications,

  • Provide a forum for lively open discussions on technical and logistical application issues, funding opportunities, collaborations, and fundamental scientific issues in this field.

Application Case Studies

  • PTR-MS Time-of-Flight (TOF) for detection of explosive compounds, designer drugs, and breath analysis
  • Interfacing with other techniques, e.g., GC-MS, HPLC,
  • Mobile platforms for field applications
  • Monitoring Pesticide Drift of MITC from agricultural fields
  • Air Monitoring of Hanford Nuclear Tanks
  • Monitoring for TCE at the ASU Sun Devil’s Experimental House in Utah
  • Visualization of data for effective presentation and customer needs
  • Software development, interfacing and future needs
  • And more! Download the complete agenda.

Hands-on Demonstrations

Bring your air or volatile solid and liquid samples to the workshop and we’ll evaluate various parameters to determine the effectiveness of PTR-MS for your requirements. We will be using the high sensitivity Q500 system.
