GCC 2022 - LECO Corporation Mobile Lab
LECO's technologies for separation science resolve complex samples and pioneer high-sample throughput using GC-TOFMS GCxGC-FID and GCxGC-TOFMS. A unique combination of easy-to-use software and advanced instrumentation provide an innovative solution for today's most demanding petroleum applications. Our Pegasus BT instruments provide users with all the information they could ever need from a single sample run, and our flow modulators provide another option for routine GCxGC analysis. This year, we are introducing a new innovation in GCxGC that will satisfy total cost of ownership, ease of use, and safety while maintaining excellent performance. Stop by and discuss how it can fit into your petroleum analysis lab!
