Ionicon have introduced new and improved hardware components for the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra, which will increase the instrument’s sensitivity significantly. Moreover, the PTR-TOF 1000 series now also features a higher mass resolution of >2000. The Ion-Booster has been revised and new PTR-TOF 1000 ultra instruments have 3× higher sensitivity of around 1500–3000 cps/ppbv as the new standard configuration.
The new X2 option is a combination of the Ion-Booster and the hexapole Ion-Guide. It increases the instrument’s sensitivity to 10,000–20,000 cps/ppbv. Existing customers will be able to upgrade.
