"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."

"Even with an increase in the number of analysis per day, turn around times – over the years – could be maintained or even reduced. This was achieved without decreasing of the measurement accuracy and repair-related or maintenance-related shutdowns.

In Germany we have a saying that perfectly fits for LECO: The first car sells the sales, the second one the service. By the way, at LECO you get everything out of one hand. The quality of the consumables is the same as for the analyzers themselves.

"Never change a running system". The statement is true, but to have a ‘running system’ over the years requires a lot of efforts. LECO not only stands for the sale of equipment but is also always helpful in the continued operation of old equipment.

Simply speaking, the LECO analyzers are "workhorses" with a very long service life. The devices require only a relatively low own maintenance and the consumption of consumables are within normal limits."

"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"

"Our main instruments for 'fuel analysis' are LECO calorimeters AC500 & AC600, LECO TruSpec CHNS together with LECO CHNS628 and Thermogravimetric analyzers LECO TGA601 & TGA701. It could take us as little as 2 minutes per analysis and with the TGA we can simply load samples and continue working on other tasks! LECO understands the importance of our work and provides highly reliable services to keep these instruments in order. Thanks to remote consultation with LECO Service department they are never too far from us when we need help. Simply a great technology partner to have!"

"We at SGS MOSH/MOAH group are using the GC × GC-TOFMS from LECO to separate the highly complex fractions of MOSH/MOAH contaminates in food. When you want to identify special patterns of contamination species amongst other analytics (e. g carotenoids) you need a high separation power in combination with a fast screening MS. This is provided by the LECO TOF. Actually we have a new project together with LECO and another company to quantify MOSH/MOAH fractions. The complexity of the instrumentation is high, but with the support of the application team from LECO we reach our goals."

"Initially we had some fears about whether the option of the time of flight detector would be the best for our laboratory, since we have no other system of this kind installed. However, at the end of 6 months of operation with the GC-TOFMS system, it was widely recognized internally that we made the right choice. An easy-to-operate system with high sensitivity, reproducibility and severalanalysis options for a large universe of analytes, and in the most varied matrices increases the versatility of laboratory operation as well as the possibility of responding to the most demanding customer requests."
