Take Your GC-MS Analysis One Step Further

What if you could take your GC-MS analysis one step further by easily adding a second dimension of separation? Our new FLUX™ GCxGC flow modulator uses a diverting flow technique (rather than industry-standard thermal modulation), eliminating the need for costly cryogens, and making GCxGC more cost-effective and routine to the everyday analyst.

Of Fireworks and Tourism: GCxGC-HRMS Analysis of Summer Impacts on Lake Michigan Water Quality

Fireworks are a staple of America’s Independence Day celebrations. It is estimated that 16,000 fireworks displays are held in the United States each year and American consumers will spend more than $1 billion in firework sales to mark the holiday! Beyond a big bang and bright lights, how do these fireworks affect the environmental world around them? LECO’s world headquarters are located in Saint Joseph, Michigan, a beach town on Lake Michigan where fireworks are a prominent backdrop to the 4th of July celebration. Last summer, our applications lab thought it would be a worthwhile and interesting experiment to test the water surrounding the firework launch spot to explore if there were any short-term environmental impacts. The influx of tourists to the Lake Michigan beaches during the holiday is sure to contribute chemicals from personal care products (sunscreen and insect repellent) to the water as well. Evaluating these potential contaminants surrounding the July 4th holiday was the objective of this study.
