Water Quality Monitoring

Delicious refreshing pure water is what drinking water companies want to hear from consumers. Ever changing legislation governs and protects water quality and LECO TOFMS instruments enable laboratories to accurately identify pharmaceuticals, home and personal care (HPC) products, pesticides and residues that can enter the water supply. LECO mass spectrometry technologies mean multi-residue methods (MRMs) and screening strategies are possible for routine and high sample throughput operation with a reliability and robustness that give every operator the confidence to plan ahead. Using logical work flows inside the ChromaTOF software, speed of analysis and report generation has never been easier.


Air Quality and Pollution

You can’t see it, touch it or eat it, but sometimes you can really smell it. Bad air that is. Air quality is vital to a healthy environment and future yet presents an enormous analytical challenge due to its ever changing complexity. From sick building syndrome to pollution of our atmosphere by combustion engines and the like, analytical chemists need to maximise VOC & semi-VOC detection in each public micro-climate or environment. LECO GCxGC with FID, µ-ECD, SCD and NPD detector solutions outperform all other technologies by using world leading GCxGC peak modulation and software technologies. Flexibility and ease of use increase analyte detectability and quantification strategies. Upgrade or combine with LECO Time of Flight mass spectrometers (TOFMS) for a truly powerful and comprehensive analytical solution.


Environmental Forensics

Environmental Forensics addresses the analytical challenges faced by events such as Exxon Valdez oil spill and the Deepwater Horizon oil spills to Analysis of Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids Used in Gas Wells world over. Chromatographic optimization is the key to successful GCxGC which is the technique needed to tackle these analytical issues. LECO’s GCxGC-TOFMS solutions unravel analytical complexity with ease by using innovative and world leading GCxGC peak modulation technologies. LECO delivers the mass spectrometry hardware and deconvolution software tools needed in a seamless single software platform instrument solution (ChromaTOF with TSD®). The LECO technologists and application experts will teach your laboratory and share the wealth of in-house knowledge developed over many years of working side-by-side experts in the field.


Dioxins & POPs

Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), halogenated PAHs, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), Dioxin-like PCBs and Dioxins are ubiquitous in our environment. Compliance with legislation means specific mass spectral performance is required and LECO Pegasus 4D GCxGC-TOFMS and Pegasus GC-HRT enable the comprehensive routine analysis of such samples. Optimising from TOFMS’s wide dynamic concentration range and full-range mass spectral benefits means single ion monitoring in order to achieve resolution and accuracy is a thing of the past. LECO offers the ability to perform broad based screening of multiple classes of POPs, PAHs, PCBs and more using flexible un-compromising mass spectral technologies.
