"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."

"Our virtual metabolomics research center has six GC-MS instruments, and the LECO PEGASUS® 4D is the crown jewel of our science park. The results of GC-MS profiling performed using GC×GC technologies has madea strong impression on users and has seriously improved the quality of ourpublications. The fast-scanning capabilities of the TOF-analyzer effectively augment the dataobtained on the ordinary quadrupole, especially when working with the most complexmatrices which are most often the subject of metabolomics analysis. The reliability of the device is especially deserving of praise. The equipment can withstand a very demanding load with constant, round-the-clock operation."

"With the Pegasus BT 4D performing untargeted analysis today is very easy, thanks to the high sensitivity of the instrument, we are able to mine and analyze any type of sample! A combination of very good sensitivity, quality to price ratio and high flexibility make the Pegasus BT 4D system perfect for analysis of every sample"

"Pegasus BT is the perfect choice for identifying well-known metabolites at low concentration level in our sample, and also discovering new compounds. The most surprising advantage of the BT system is the ion source robustness! We usually work with dirty and complex samples, but we have never observed drop of sensitivity during our analyses.This reduces the time and cost of our analyses!"

"We use the LECO Pegasus BT instrument for the quantification of small polar metabolites. We developed a hybrid method where we quantitate 51 metabolites with standard curves and screen for any other small polar metabolites in a wide range of biological samples. This assay has a great dynamic range thanks to the sensitivity of the BT. The StayClean® ion source allows us to run hundreds of samples in a batch and be confi dent that the ion source will remain clean even with dirty samples such as plasma."
