PEGASUS® GC-HRT+

High Resolution Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

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.

LECO’s own Folded Flight Path® (FFP®) technology and novel data acquisition system enables 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

TESTIMONIALS

That‘s what our users say:

Helmholtz Zentrum München (HMGU) Department “Comprehensive Molecular Analytics“, GERMANY

„This combination of ultrahigh chromatographic separation with high mass resolution might be still unique for a commercial
available end user system.“

Prof. Ralf Zimmermann

Food Chemistry Institute Cologne, Italy

“Pegasus BT is the perfect choice for identifying well-known metabolites at low concentration level in our sample, and also discovering new compounds. The most surprising advantage of the BT system is the ion source robustness! We usually work with dirty and complex samples, but we have never observed drop of sensitivity during our analyses.This reduces the time and cost of our analyses!”

Prof. Antonio Randazzon

Università degli Studi del Piemonte Orientale, Italy

„With the Pegasus BT 4D performing untargeted analysis today is very easy, thanks to the high sensitivity of the instrument, we are able to mine and analyze any type of sample! A combination of very good sensitivity, quality to price ratio and high flexibility make the Pegasus BT 4D system perfect for analysis of every sample”

Dott. Marcello Manfredi

Czech Academy of Science, Tschechische Republik

“Compared to GC equipped with a single column, the Pegasus 4D enabled me to separate unbelievable number of analytes! Tens of thousands of separated peaks in one run was not an exception. But where the separation was not perfect, ChromaTOF software and its deconvolution algorithm did the job. Such excellent ‘separating power’ helped me discover new types of plant PCB metabolites.“

Ing. Jan Rezek, Ph. D.

TURKU Metabolomics Facility, Finland

“We use the LECO Pegasus BT instrument for the quantification of small polar metabolites. We developed a hybrid method where we quantitate 51 metabolites with standard curves and screen for any other small polar metabolites in a wide range of biological samples. This assay has a great dynamic range thanks to the sensitivity of the BT. The StayClean® ion source allows us to run hundreds of samples in a batch and be confi dent that the ion source will remain clean even with dirty samples such as plasma.“

Alex Dickens

SGS Institut Fresenius GmbH Berlin, Germany

“We at SGS MOSH/MOAH group are using the GC × GC-TOFMS from LECO to separate the highly complex fractions of MOSH/MOAH contaminates in food. When you want to identify special patterns of contamination species amongst other analytics (e. g carotenoids) you need a high separation power in combination with a fast screening MS. This is provided by the LECO TOF. Actually we have a new project together with LECO and another company to quantify MOSH/MOAH fractions. The complexity of the instrumentation is high, but with the support of the application team from LECO we reach our goals.”

Silvia Aguiló Losa

ALS Enviromental, UK

“I believe this technology and methodology will profoundly change water analysis realising major benefi ts for both laboratories and their customers.“
