Our Founder & CEO dr. Maurice Janssen presented a lecture on MS-PECD at the First International Conference on Soft Chemical Ionisation Mass Spectrometry and Applications to Trace Gas Analysis. The conference was chaired by Prof. Chris Mayhew (University of Innsbruck / Birmingham) and Prof. Karl Unterkofler (FH Voralberg Dornbirn).

The need for quantitative and rapid detection of chemical compounds in complex environments and at ultralow concentrations provides significant challenges to analytical chemistry for applications in many areas. Soft chemical ionisation mass spectrometric techniques can be used to address some of these challenges, and hence are key technologies for many analytical applications, ranging from atmospheric chemistry through to homeland security.

The aim of this conference was to provide a forum for discussions on research, instrumentation and applications of soft chemical ionisation mass spectrometric (SCIMS) techniques, with a particular focus on the technologies of PTR-MS, IMS, IMS/MS and SIFT-MS, covering many of areas of applications, but with an emphasis on fundamental research and development, atmospheric chemistry, homeland security, and the environmental, food and health sciences.
