"I have been using a GC-TOFMS Pegasus BT since January 2018 for Metabolomics projects. I have mainly analysed murine tissues extracts, and, I'm very happy about its robustness and high sensitivity."

"I use a LECO mass spectrometer for plant metabolomics ; it is an efficient machine with a very low detection limit and the Chromatof deconvolution algorithm allows to find hundreds of compounds in complex extracts."

"I have been working with LECO instruments for approx. ten years. I worked with the PEGASUS® 4D, TruTOF, GC-HRT and, for few days in Berlin, with the Pegasus BT and BT 4D – I really enjoyed that. There are several reasons why I like working with the devices and why I would not consider using other GC-MS insturments.

  • LECO instruments are reliable and robust with well working peak find and mass spectral deconvolution algorithms.
  • In principle, LECO instruments are allowing both target and non target analysis which can be performed in one run, with nice sensitivity.
  • Data processing is easy and everything is done in one SW – no need to use complicated combinations of SWs.
  • LECO has an excellent customers support"

"Following years of service from the old LECO PEGASUS® 4D TOF GC-MS, we upgraded to a new LECO Pegasus BT4D TOF GC-MS. The decision was made due to the exceptional separating power afforded by thecryogenic modulation and the durability of the LECO StayClean® sourcetechnology which has been carried into the updated system. The combination of the two open up a wide variety of analyses to us whichenable use of this instrument in many aspects of our research."

Dr. Katie Read, Coordinator of the Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory (CVAO)

National Centre for AtmosphericScience (NCAS), University of York

"We send instruments into the harshest of environments and run very demandingsamples on them. Bearing this in mind, our decision to upgrade the GC-MS at our remote Cape-Verde site to the new LECO PEGASUS® BT was driven by the promise of the StayClean® source. This minimizes down time and eliminates operations which are difficult to carry out when working with remote systems. The increased sensitivity of theinstrument enables us to take smaller sample volumes which again assists with easing the burden placedon the analytical machine. Finally! the upgrade from quadrupole to time of flight mass spec will enable us to keep historical datasets which can be interrogated for any compounds which prove interesting in the future."

Dr. Mara Knapp, Laboratory Business Development Manager

Department of Civil Engineering University of Strathclyde

"In 2013, I became responsible for overseeing the department’s analytical suitewhich included a LECO PEGASUS® 4D GC×GC TOF MS as our flagshipinstrument. I had no experience in gas chromatography and found even a standard GCMS daunting. Over the past years, I received extensive support from LECO. Especially withsupport from LECO UK the instrument is still running strong a decade after purchase. I anticipate it will go for another decade and then some."

"I believe this technology and methodology will profoundly change water analysis realising major benefi ts for both laboratories and their customers."
