TofThe LINV has recently acquired a PTR-TOF MS, a new instrument that can analyze volatile organic compounds with a mass resolution of up to 7.000 m/Dm, separate molecules isobaric and record masses up to 500 Da in less than one second.

This highly sensitive instrument has a resolution of about 20 pptv for one minute integration on a field of VOC with molecular weights ranging between 0 and 7000. Therefore the system can identify the full spectrum of volatile compounds emitted in a complex system.

The PTR-TOF is the most sensitive and complete electronic nose on the market, which is essential for each study /technology covering VOCs and their interactions.
