The mobile instrumentation "PTR-MS" allows the measurement of the exchange of volatile organic compounds (VOC) between the different compartments of the ecosystem (soil, plant, fauna, micro-organisms, air).
The platform is equipped with a proton transfer mass spectrometer (PTRQiTOF Ionicon®) that detects and quantifies VOCs in real time in the air. It is equipped for VOC measurements at different scales from dm² to plot. Measurements can be made in the laboratory in a dynamic chamber or on site (chamber, profile in the cover and flow tower).
