Jens Herbig (IONICON Analytik)


IONICON Analytik is the market leader for highly sensitive real-time trace gas analyzers (PTR-MS) with many potential applications. The company was founded in 1998 as a spin-off of the University of Innsbruck with the sale of the first system, built by scientists for scientists. We have constantly improved the system’s performance for cutting edge scientific research (Lab) and its usability and robustness for automated industrial applications (Fab).

We will discuss the challenges and milestones on our journey towards new research applications and markets for routine analysis e.g. the semiconductor manufacturing or a recently developed COVID-19 breath test using PTR-MS.
