Compact Ultra-Sensitive VOC Analyzer: PTR-TOF 1000 Ultra

Compact and extremely sensitive, the PTR-TOF 1000 Ultra is a VOC analyzer.

  • Sensitivity: > 2000 cps/ppbv
  • Resolution: > 1500
  • LoD: < 5 pptv


Compared to the PTR-TOF 1000, there is 10× more sensitivity because of the innovative ION-BOOSTER funnel technology.

The new industry standard for a reliable and portable real-time volatile organic compound (VOC) analyzer is the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra. Built on the popular PTR-TOF 1000 platform, it provides all the advantages of a PTR-TOFMS instrument that is small, light, and reasonably priced, along with exceptional sensitivity.

With the PTR-TOF 1000 ultra, users can explore the world of time-of-flight-based PTR-MS instruments.
