LEAP Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1989 as an autosampler company serving the GC and GC–MS markets. Since then, LEAP has expanded into front-end sample handling for all areas of chromatography and mass spectroscopy, including LC/MS/MS and MALDI-MS as well as robotics for proteomics and fiber optic UV technology for tablet dissolution. LEAP strives to find total solutions for analytical lab automation. One of the major components in LEAP's approach to automation solutions is with the PAL X,Y,Z robot.LEAP Technologies All Things PAL™ Simplify with One Call, One Source, One Purchase Order!

The LEAP Story
LEAP is experienced in providing automation solutions for any process that gathers, treats and delivers samples to an analytical process. Liquid Handling is in most cases involved but we are not limited to that. We can also move,weigh and image objects. Liquid handling includes spraying and printing besides the usual measuring, pipetting, injecting, mixing , heating or sampling of a variety of liquids. We have the ability to design, engineer, deliver and support simple but unique or complex but simple to use systems. The LEAP Shell software lets us create solution-specific sample lists and shell methods that synchronize all instruments involved. LEAP Shell is used for LC/LCMS and stand-alone workstations. LEAP uses Chronos Mastersoftwarefor GC and GC-MS integrations. Currently, Chronos integrates with Thermo Electron Xcalibur 1.4 and 2.0 GC & Agilent GC and MSD ChemStation. Further data system packages are begin integrated with Chronos so check with LEAP to see if yours is.
We can provide complete locked-down systems to Value Added Resellers (VARs). Combinations of instruments that we can supply are robotic sampling devices and LC pumps as front-end to LC-MS systems. Single and dual channel LC to one MS that save cycle time and therefore increase throughput are becoming standard Frontend Automation Bundles (FABs). LEAP has available a proven SDK for PAL integration into your data system software.
One of LEAP's fundamental business philosophies is to build strong client relationships by knowing our customers and responding to their specific needs with superior personal service whether you have one PAL or are VAR of LEAP's.

Examples of Special Solutions
Examples of some customized applications we have provided. We call them "LEAP Specials". They are custom made to suit your exact needs. Let us show you how automation can make your life in the laboratory easier, more efficient, and more rewarding. Turn Your CTC Autosampler into a LEAP WorkStation. The CTC PAL is a great autosampler but LEAP can improve upon it with one or more of our automated solutions. You dont have to know how - you just have to know LEAP. LEAP is experienced in providing automation solutions for any process that gathers, treats and delivers samples to an analytical process.

Liquid handling includes spraying and printing besides the usual measuring, pipetting, injecting, mixing, heating or sampling of a variety of liquids. We have the ability to design, engineer, deliver and support simple but unique or complex but simple to use systems. We have various software packages to choose from including all major data systems. Our own LEAP Shell scheduling software let’s us create solution specific sample lists and Shell methods that synchronizes all instruments involved. We also can use Chronos Mastersoftware, Cycle Composer software, Cycle Editor and ICC-CE depending on your needs.

LEAP's PAL Parts
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 autosampler 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.
