"The Ultimate Untargeted Technique" – LECO in colaboration with the Analytical Scientist

The rise of omics has been a hot topic in our group for the past few years – in part because our own expertise aligns somewhat with the needs of these fields. Metabolomics is then particularly challenging for the separation science community, demanding the application of high-end iterations of various techniques, including LC, GC, MS, and NMR. In fact, when it comes to metabolomics, most analytical tools have a “seat at the technique table” – after all, multimodality is the only way to make sense of such high sample complexity.

“Breath Biomarkers of Infection” in the Analytical Scientist

From cancer to diabetes to the recent rise of COVID-19, we will all likely come face-to-face with a threat to our health. Contemporary medicine has ever-improving tools to identify and combat diseases, but there are gaps – in speed, in invasiveness, in coverage, in access, and in accuracy. Can we do better? And how can we ensure that new approaches provide the same level of diagnostic potential as those currently in service?

Jane Hill, Associate Professor of Engineering, and Billy Boyle, CEO of Owlstone Medical, explain how their research in the area of breath analysis is opening new diagnostic doors.

"Determination of Pesticides in Tomato Products by GC×GC-TOFMS" – LECO in colaboration with Separation Science

Find out how the use of Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GC×GC) with Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF-MS) demonstrates excellent matrix-analyte and analyte-analyte separation quality of a high number of target pesticides, at high sensitivity.

The LECO Pegasus BT 4D was used to develop a robust and straightforward quantification workflow adhering to SANTE requirements.

1st North American virtual GC×GC Symposium & Workshop

A free virtual seminar sponsored by LECO Corporation
14 – 18 September 2020

Who will benefit? Any supervisor or chemist working in the analytical lab looking to get more information from GC-MS technology, struggling with complex samples, or seeking advantages beyond the same old GC-MS performance. If you have a GC-MS analytical challenge, you’ll want to see what you’ve been missing! You will learn from key opinion leaders in the field of GC and GC×GC technology as to how these solutions can seamlessly fit into your workflow and benefit your laboratory.

"Evaluating Oxidized Base Oils by Flow Modulated GC×GC-TOFMS" by Paul Harvath

At LECO’S GC×GC Workshop & Symposium (filmed at the LECO European Application and Training Centre, Berlin, Germany) Paul Harvath gave a talk entitled "Evaluation of Oxidized Base Oils by Flow Modulated Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography – Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry". In his talk he gave an insight about the history and future of engine oils for cars, and how the lubricants changed over the times.

Cannabis Questions? More Answers in one Injection

As laws and regulations change, cannabis and all it’s related chemical compounds of interest are showing up in a wide variety of consumer products. LECO instruments, that combine powerful Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF-MS) and Comprehensive Two Dimensional Gas Chromatography (GC×GC) technologies, can make your analyses more efficient. Find out here, how to save time and money by quantifying and identifying both the terpene and cannabinoids in just one injection. The same injection can even reveal the presence of pesticides and more!

How can we do this? Using GC×GC drastically increases analyte separation, which together with high quality full mass range spectra obtained by TOF-MS, enables powerful deconvolution analyte finding using ChromaTOF.
