We take away the stress and frustration your laboratory experiences when faced with the increasing demands of doing more with less.

The one thing all laboratories need to be successful is results they feel confident in. Since 1936, millions of samples worldwide have been analyzed using LECO instruments for elemental analysis, thermal analysis, metallography, and mass spectrometry. Our comprehensive solutions for improving productivity include working with you to find the right equipment for the type of analysis you are doing — and providing you with the training, application support, and service you need to keep your lab running at its best.

Soils TOC: Analysing Acid-Treated Samples is Now Easy as ABC

February 19, 2024

As the concern for global warming has increased over the years, ways to sequester carbon has been top-of-mind for many scientists and researchers. Capturing atmospheric carbon in the form of carbon dioxide, converting it, and storing it in soil would not only help the overall environment, but it could help farmers grow better crops as well.

GC×GC Data Handling: ChromaTOF® Tile

June 9, 2023

While time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOFMS) was first proposed in 1946, the technology simply didn't exist to allow for fast enough processing speeds to make it widely viable until 1995, when the Fast Chromatographic Detector was debuted at Pittcon. This group went on to join LECO and create the world's first commercial GC-TOFMS, the PEGASUS®, in 1997. Ever since then, technological capabilities have exploded. One-dimensional GC-TOFMS and multi-dimensional GCxGC-TOFMS are powerful and provide rich and highly informative data. If you have a number of samples to study, the volume of data produced might seem overwhelming. However, LECO's data analysis add-ons for ChromaTOF brand software, ChromaTOF Tile and ChromaTOF Sync, have once again pushed GC-TOFMS capabilities beyond what was previously feasible.
