LEAP Shell Scheduling Software Overview

LEAP Shell 3™ scheduling software provides a unified approach to the sample centric process of analyzing samples in a multi-vendor environment. Pump, autosampler, sample prep workstation, balance for weighing and mass spec, plus many smaller peripherals, can be timed and controlled consistently and easily from one sample list.

LEAP Shell goes beyond the capability of generic data system drivers.

LEAP Shell offers true "Look ahead" or "Inject ahead" operations on the PAL autosampler in conjunction with other vendors hardware and software

LEAP Shell 3™ synchronizes multi-vendor system components including but not limited to:

  • Mettler Balance
  • Analyst™
  • All CTC PALs
  • Chorus Nano Pump
  • 4x Ultra Pump

LEAP Shell Overview

  • Simplification of Sample Handling; a single, highly customizable Sample entry table maximizes user efficiency by presenting only the entry fields necessary for the application.
  • Multi component control software without Data Acquisition
  • Simplest configuration is LEAP Shell and PAL
  • Includes a utility for setting up import and export of Sample Lists from pre-saved templates.
  • Extremely powerful editors for synchronizing the operation of all configured devices. Includes conditional logic using signal and data inputs.
  • Powerful Programmability with Cycle Editor; Create custom cycles to use as a part of a Shell method
  • Login Security; Layered access to suit the security needs of the user’s lab with four access levels
  • Can create and run custom cycles without the need for further add-ons or licenses.
  • Can prepare samples ahead of time while previous acquisition is in progress, saves time. Shell program calculates when to get the next sample
  • Because of this Looking Ahead feature, we can perform staggered injections significantly increasing throughput where there is a front &/or back cut.
  • Provides an integration solution for some devices which are not currently supported by Analyst e.g. Rheos & Eksigent pumps.
  • Control devices other than the PAL – synchronize these devices.
  • The PAL actions can be changed within a method, based on external feedback be it signals or data provided to the LEAP Shell at run-time.
  • Sample List columns can be customized – no limit to the type of data that the user can include.
  • Sample List Columns can be different for each Shell method in the same list
  • Option to view complex Sample Lists sorted by Method or by device.
  • Data reported by external devices (e.g. balance or barcode reader) can be displayed in the Sample List columns.
  • Sample Lists can be exported in many formats (e.g. elimited text, Excel, HTML,XML)
  • Cabling is greatly simplified, all synchronization is via RS232 – no device to device connections required.
  • Control for Twin PAL using the same Sample List
  • PAL Cycles cannot be “tampered with” – protected.

LEAP Technologies provides fully automated sample processing workstation instrumentation solutions based on the LEAP CTC PAL X, Y, Z syringe only autosampler robot. This extremely flexible, precise, and adaptable liquid handling robotic platform is available in a variety of lengths and options depending on the requirements of your sample preparation and injections for your UHPLC, LC or GC chromatography. LEAP also offers process control systems and stand alone workstations. LEAP is an open, neutral resource for technical support of existing PAL. Keep your PAL in peak working order LEAP offers full support and service for the PAL platform with over 11 years of history with the PAL. LEAP can also write custom macros, cycles, and scheduling software for your specific applications. We're proud that LEAP is known as a productivity improver for laboratories including government labs in agencies such as FDA, USDA, EPA, FBI, Armed Forces, Homeland Security and others function more efficiently. Robotic sample prep equipment works well in government labs and challenges lab technicians to keep feeding those more samples. Analytical equipment such as chromatographs and mass spectrometers are expensive devices and also expensive to maintain. LEAP can help to keep them running and analyze samples around the clock. LEAP has most of its laboratory automation robots under GSAcontract and is eager to service and maintain everything it sells to keep your expensive lab equipment running around the clock. CTC Analytics Combi PAL and HTS PAL for Front-End Automation for LC and GC applications. LEAP offers customized on-site training. LEAP Is continuing to develop FAQ, Solutions, Tips & Techniques,a Learning Center with the LEAP Wiki for the benefit of all PAL Platform Robotic users. We will continue exceeding customer expectations for quality, cost effective and efficient results using the most current technology and expertise in our industry. Our aim is to be the ultimate knowledge base on everything related to the PAL. LEAP is known as the autosamplerguys being in business over twenty years. LEAP has extensive multi-vendor experience with integrating the PAL. HTX, HTS, HTC, HTX-xt, HTS-xt, HTC-xt, LC-Mini, Combi PAL,COMBI-xt PAL, and GC PAL models. We have the Quality, Training, Parts availability, Infrastructure, and Experience.LEAP is sometimes referred to as an Application Automation House who is continually adding new products and solutions to its Lab Automation line.

Please contact LEAP Technologies on how we can help you get maximized throughput with flexible pipetting automation solutions whether it is our standard applications or customized to your needs. The Combi-xt PAL autosampler is able to perform liquid and headspace analysis. Headspace options include Solid Phase Micro-extraction (SPME) and ITEX-2 as alternative to purge and trap. The HTS-xt PAL autosampler dramatically increases sample throughput by offering automated sample prep, Peltier cooled and heated sample storage using the cooled stack, Peltier cooled and heated sample storage using the cooled stack and low carryover due to the self-cleaning DLW (Dynamic Load and Wash) module and L-Mark syringes, peltier cooled valves and columns. LEAP provides automation that fits your needs and reduces errors, increases sample capacity, increases efficiency, reduces cost by supplying long term productivity improvements with user friendly software and flexible hardware. LEAP performs just in time or on time sample prep and inject. LEAP offers full support of integrated and non-integrated PAL software with both sales and support for Cruise Control, Cycle Composer and Cycle Composer Macro Editor, Agilent ChemStation CTC Control, Mass Hunter and EZChrom CTC integration, Xcalibur, Waters Masslynx or Analyst CTC Control software, Thermo (Finnegan) XCalibur, LEAP Shell, and Chronos software. The PAL is more than just an autosampler, it is a high-quality and efficient laboratory robot platform that can be customized by LEAP Technologies to meet your specific needs.
