We report on the latest instrumental developments, namely i) the improvement of the detection limit that now allows for measuring trace gas compounds in a concentration range from several ppmv down to the ppqv (parts-per-quadrillion) region with a typical response time well below 100ms and, in case a TOF mass analyzer is used, a mass resolution better than 5.000 m/Δm and ii) the possibility to switch between H3O+, NO+ and O2+ as reagent ions. We show, that the sensitivities obtained with NO+ and O2+ are comparable or even better to the outstanding sensitivity of the established PTR-MS instruments and therefore well above those from e.g. SIFT-MS instruments. To demonstrate the advantages of the new setup we e.g. measured acetone and propanal (isomeric molecules at nominal mass 58amu) utilizing NO+ as the precursor ion. We see the isomeric compounds on different nominal masses and can identify them unambiguously. Furthermore, by using O2+ precursor ions we are able to ionize molecules that cannot be measured via hydronium proton transfer reaction.
