Introducing the Pegasus® GC-HRT 4D
Product News Mar 10, 2015
LECO is pleased to announce the launch of Pegasus GC-HRT 4D, which combines the industry standard for comprehensive GCxGC with the highest performance time-of-flight mass spectrometer on the market. This latest innovation in comprehensive GCMS provides scientists with the unprecedented ability to investigate complex samples and identify unknown analytes with the ultimate confidence.
“This product has been eagerly anticipated in the marketplace, as we have fantastic new capabilities and our collaborators are very pleased with the results they are obtaining,” says Lorne Fell, Separation Science Product Manager. “We have built upon our years of GCxGC experience to deliver an appropriate balance of familiar and innovative new features. As we gain traction in our key markets—metabolomics, petroleum, and environmental—we predict this machine will empower our customers to truly discover what other analytes are in their samples instead of playing a guessing game.”
These advances in technology are paired with LECO’s ChromaTOF-HRT® brand software with High Resolution Deconvolution™ (HRD™), which is tailored to get the most out of high resolution data using NIST and Accurate Mass Libraries. Work flows enabled by features such as pseudo-molecular ions via Chemical Ionization, leveraging retention time matching, isotope patterns, and mass accuracy of deconvoluted fragments—all lead to confident identification of unknown species. With mass accuracies of 1 ppm and peak capacity potential at least two times greater than any currently available on the marketplace, the Pegasus GC-HRT 4D is the solution to winning the fight against coelution and comprehensively characterizing even the most complex samples.
