Available models

Pegasus BT GC-TOFMS

Quantitation

GC Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

Today's laboratories are being asked for more everyday—more samples run, more data acquired, more chemical information processed, and more results achieved—all in less time, for less money. The Pegasus BT allows you to achieve all of the data you need from a single sample run, while powerful yet user-friendly ChromaTOF® software processes your data and removes the guesswork involved with analyte identification, quantitation, and reporting. The Pegasus BT give users more uptime, improved chemical data, and an increase in overall productivity and efficiency.

Features

  • A sleek, benchtop design saves valuable space in the laboratory.
  • Industry-leading sensitivity helps you find and quantify an unlimited number of analytes, while working with proprietary deconvolution algorithms to yield clean, high-quality spectra.
  • Complete historical record of mass spectral components for each sample is retained for future data mining.
  • The tried-and-tested reliability and durability of our Pegasus brand in a convenient benchtop unit.

Pegasus BT 4D GCxGC-TOFMS

Identification, Quantitation

GCxGC Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

The Pegasus BT 4D offers enhanced sensitivity by coupling our benchtop Pegasus BT with a high performance GCxGC modulation system. This combination gives the Pegasus BT 4D the ability to interrogate challenging samples where the best sensitivity is needed. Unique and powerful software and hardware features simplify quantitation, while also dramatically making GCxGC easy-to-use and understand.

Our traditional thermal modulation system provides the highest sensitivity available on the market for those analyzing the most complex samples. 

Our new FLUX™ flow modulation system is an excellent option for those looking for added capability over one dimensional GC.

Features

  • ChromaTOF®, LECO's exclusive software designed for advance chromatography, works seamlessly with the new Pegasus BT 4D to automatically process user data and remove the guesswork involved with analyte identification and quantification. Features such as NonTarget Deconvolution®, Target Analyte Find, library searches, and an easy-to-configure interface, all come together to give users a better GCxGC experience.
  • Do you know what's missing in your sample? The Pegasus BT 4D makes is easy to perform a Non-Targeted analysis for complex samples.
  • Clearly identify analytes in your sample with the unmatched sensitivity of the GCxGC modulation process.
  • Our open-style StayClean® EI source virtually eliminates downtime associated with source cleaning, which means more time running samples and less time cleaning your source

Pegasus GC-HRT+

Identification

High Resolution GC-TOFMS

Now with even more sensitivity than ever before, the Pegasus GC-HRT+ is the perfect tool for meeting the challenges of today’s highly complex analytical demands. This high performance mass spectrometer features industry leading mass accuracy, full mass range acquisition with exceptional speed, isotopic abundance, and mass resolution, all available within 1 injection.

Folded Flight Path® (FFP®) technology and a novel data acquisition system enable resolution of 50,000 FWHM, mass accuracies less than 1 ppm, and acquisition rates up to 200 spectra/second—all with the goal to facilitate rich analyte finding and high-confidence analyte identification.

Features

  • Mass accuracies of 1 ppm and peak capacity potential at least two times greater than any mass spectrometer currently available on the marketplace
  • Encoded Frequent Pushing® (EFP®) contributes to a significant increase in sensitivity, expanded dynamic range, wide mass range, and much more.
  • Folded Flight Path (FFP) technology provides high resolution, enhanced sensitivity, and higher orders of TOF focusing
  • KADAS®, our patented ion statistics-based data acquisition system, dramatically reduces noise, ensures mass accuracy, and reduces file size.
  • What else is in your sample? In cases where ambiguity exists, Ultra High Resolution mode combined with HRD will pull apart highly isobaric ions (mass differences ~ 0.02 amu). 
  • Available with either Electron Ionization (EI) source for comparison with classic library spectra, or Chemical Ionization (CI) source for preservation of the molecular ion.

Pegasus GC-HRT+ 4D

Identification

High Resolution GC×GC-TOFMS

The Pegasus GC-HRT+ 4D combines the highest performance GCxGC and TOFMS tools on the market with High Resolution Deconvolution® (HRD®). Ideal for the most complex samples, users are able to find more analytes than ever before and confidently identify unknown components. ChromaTOF® brand software, designed specifically for HRT+ instrumentation and GCxGC support, adds advanced qualitative and quantitative capabilities to an all-in-one user-friendly data system.

Features

  • Clearly identify analytes in your sample with the unmatched sensitivity of the GC×GC modulation process.
  • Mass accuracies of 1 ppm and peak capacity potential at least two times greater than any mass spectrometer currently available on the marketplace
  • Encoded Frequent Pushing® (EFP®) contributes to a significant increase in sensitivity, expanded dynamic range, wide mass range, and much more.
