Our latest online presentations for MOSH / MOAH Analysis are now available as an On-Demand session. With these fundamentals you will learn all the ins and outs on the LC–GC coupling, GC×GC and Time-of-Flight MS to be able to determine MOSH and MOAH in food products.
From raw foods to final consumer-ready products, LECO instruments analyse the quality of and nutritional value of dairy products, meats, cereals, poultry, beer, and wine.
Did you catch our recent article on Food Navigator? Nitrogen content in food materials is necessary to measure when determining the total protein content. This measurement of nitrogen content can be performed using a classical wet chemistry method, but this tends to be a slow and tedious process. The combustion-based Dumas method has gained popularity in recent years as it significantly increases laboratory productivity. Yet when the sample has a low level of nitrogen it can be challenging to analyse. Examples of these hard-to-analyse samples include dry corn starch, NDIN filter bags, nutritional drinks, and beer. How can the combustion method be optimised to accommodate these lower-level nitrogen samples?
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.
The recent eSeminar series on SepScience.com covering LECO’s solutions for Food and Environmental Analysis is now available as an on-demand version. The talks feature topics around the challenging field of FOOD analysis as well as the ENVIRONMENTAL analysis of the thousands of chemicals present in our air, land and water supplies.
How efficient is your workflow when it comes to food samples? Are you sure you're seeing everything your sample has to offer? Learn how LECO has been expanding what is possible when it comes to food safety analyses with this free series of webinars.

An accurate determination of moisture content in milk products provides important information related to the food quality and safety (texture, taste, microbial stability). Moisture is also a key variable used to calculate a product’s purity, yield, and /or resulting constituent analysis on a dry basis.
The TGM800 provides the user with flexible method settings, automation, and hardware capabilities that maximises moisture determination efficiency, productivity, and analytical performance. This is accomplished while offering the ability to meet the primary loss-on-drying method requirements for sample.
Please join us for two upcoming eSeminars on SepScience.com. We present how state of the art LECO GC-TOF-MS and GC×GC-TOF-MS technologies can dramatically enhance your applications for Food Analysis (9th June) and Environmental (11th June).

Today, 20th May, is UN World Honey Bee Day. The honey bee is an important pollinator species that contributes an estimated $15 billion a year to the US economy through crop pollination and £690 million to the UK economy. Honey bees are also important wild pollinators, and play a key role in maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services in many ecosystems.
Our new eBook summarises a large part of LECO’s application work in the field of food testing. In addition to the Application Compendium, the eBook includes an introduction to GC×GC- and TOFMS-technology, followed by an overview of the different hardware and software solutions that were used for the food testing applications. A bibliography with additional references can be found in the appendix.
The eBook is downloadable at SeparationScience now.

Ralf Löscher speaks about the latest technologies, as well as many years experience LECO has in the field of TOFMS instrumentation. The special focus of this interview refers to the food industry and the special benefits LECO offers to this market.
“In the field of chromatographic separation science technology, LECO offers GC coupled to time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (MS). This includes one-dimensional as well as two-dimensional chromatography (GC×GC), which increases chromatographic resolution and sensitivity. In addition, our latest technology is competitively priced in relation to triple quadrupole alternatives. Furthermore, GC-TOF-MS technology is basically unbeatable for the analysis of residues in complex matrices such as teas, spices, oily products, but also baby food.“
