The Pegasus BT provides full m/z range data and sensitivity which make it ideal for screening target analytes and/or general unknowns. The better than nominal mass information generated by the Pegasus BT allowed for further distinction of the target analyte from a matrix interference at the very lowest concentrations.

This study demonstrates the Pegasus BT’s ability to detect and quantify 2,4,6-trichloroanisole at parts-per-trillion levels within a wine matrix. HS-SPME was used for sample preparation and analysis was performed with LECO’s BT GC-TOFMS system. The detection and quantification of TCA at levels well below the typical sensory threshold are demonstrated.
