(MONROEVILLE, Pa., June 24, 2013) RJ Lee Group, Inc. materials characterization laboratory and industrial forensics consulting firm today announced that it has become the exclusive U.S. distribution partner for IONICON Analytik GmbH’s Trace Gas Analysis products including the Proton Transfer Reaction – Mass Spectrometer (PTR-MS) trace gas analyzer. This highly sensitive analyzer allows real-time monitoring of trace gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at the parts per trillion levels. Though the unit has been sold in the U.S. for several years, RJ Lee Group will be the first domestic distributor providing sales, service, training and application support.
RJ Lee Group has been providing analytical services both in the laboratory and in the field for over 30 years, and since 2012, the company has used its own PTR-MS system, installed in a mobile laboratory, to sample a variety of organic compounds at locations around the country. RJ Lee Group will distribute the instrument as well as offer analysis services, training, consultation, and application development support to owners and prospective users.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with RJ Lee Group,” stated Lukas Märk, CEO of IONICON Analytik GmbH. “The U.S. represents one of our largest installed user groups, and with this partnership, some of the world’s leading trace gas analysis experts at RJ Lee Group are joining our team. I am looking forward to supporting and growing our user community and developing new application areas for our technology with RJ Lee Group.”
IONICON Analytik GmbH was founded in 1998 and is the world’s leading producer of trace gas analysis solutions. Since that time, the company has produced a number of ultra-sensitive, high resolution mass spectrometers. Its devices have been used in applications ranging from atmospheric chemistry, environmental research, and trace gas analysis to food and flavor science testing, industrial VOC monitoring, and illicit substances detection.
