Software for Separation Science


What is ChromaTOF?

LECO’s ChromaTOF® brand software is an industry standard mass spectrometer data system for acquiring, processing, and reporting data. Uniquely designed to meet the needs of today’s laboratory professionals in the food/flavor/fragrance, metabolomics, environmental, and petrochemical industries, ChromaTOF offers seamless control of both the instrument and accessories, as well as an intuitive interface with highly integrated data processing. ChromaTOF is the first mass spectrometry data system to fully accommodate multidimensional chromatographic data (GCxGC), transforming your analysis.

  • Identify and quantify components with both targeted and non-targeted analysis all from one injection
  • Our non-targeted approach is based on industry leading deconvolution algorithms
    • Deconvolution algorithms operate on a 3-dimensional data cube where features are extracted in each dimension simultaneously, leading to accurate identification of coeluting species with the removal of continuous background ions
    • The process is fully automated so that you only review the end result, no manual manipulation is necessary
  • Targeted quantitation approach matches all industry standards for quantifying your analytes
    • Target Analyte Find (TAF) allows users to quantify peaks at the lowest limits of detectability
    • Absolute concentration of analytes based on calibration curve
    • Relative quantitation based on a reference or another analytes curve
    • Quantitation from a single channel detector, Flame Ionization Detection (FID)
  • All data and processing results are fully reportable and exportable (standard formats)


What Sets ChromaTOF Apart?

  • Data processing is automatically saved within file system, no extra steps are needed and you can always come back to where you left off
    • Data file system stores and manages meta- and instrument data for you
  • All standard features are contained within one software package, even optional items are built –in and can be activated when needed
  • Easy-to-use, efficient, and robust
  • Frequently updated for continuous maintenance and feature development.
