Pegasus® 4D GCxGC-TOFMS

Comprehensive Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography with Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometer

GCxGC, combined with the Pegasus HT TOFMS, changes the dynamic when analyzing complex samples. No longer limited to two analytical dimensions, the Pegasus 4D GCxGC-TOFMS system provides you with four dimensions of analytical resolution for a more complete sample analysis. With LECO GCxGC, you are able to detect hundreds-to-thousands more compounds than previously seen using conventional one dimensional GC.

Powerful, easy-to-use Windows®-based ChromaTOF® software simplifies component identification—providing a significant increase in efficiency and productivity.

Watch Dr. Frank Dorman of Penn State University discuss why the Pegasus 4D GCxGC-TOFMS is his lab’s preferred instrument for environmental forensics in his 2014 ASMS presentation Analysis of Drilling and Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids Used in Gas Wells with Two-Dimensional GC-TOFMS.


  • Integrated control of all GC, modulator, TOFMS, and autosampler system components
  • Comprehensive quantitative analysis of target analytes
  • Qualitative analysis with Automated Peak Find and True Signal Deconvolution® algorithms


Two-Dimensional Gas Chromatography

The dual stage-quadjet modulator and secondary oven are mounted inside the primary GC oven. Control of the autosampler, GC, LECO's GCxGC Thermal Modulator, and the Pegasus TOFMS is fully integrated within a single computer using LECO's ChromaTOF software. Dual Stage Modulator

ChromaTOF® Software

Developed exclusively by its own team of software engineers, LECO’s ChromaTOF software is uniquely designed to meet the needs of today’s laboratory professionals in the food/flavor/fragrance, metabolomics, environmental, and petrochemical industries. ChromaTOF employs advanced True Signal Deconvolution® and Automated Peak Find algorithms, Compare and Classification functions, and a host of other easy-to-use features to extract and process the necessary data that is obtained through the use.
