As an innovation driver, LCTech sets the qualitative and functional standard in the automation of important phases of sample preparation, making laboratory work easier, safer and more economical.

For Persistent Difficulties

Contamination of Food and Feed

Approximately 25% of global food production is destroyed due to mycotoxin contamination. The analytical detection of toxins in food and feed is therefore of great importance for the health of the world's population and for economic efficiency.

Analytica 2024
LCTech at Analytica 2024

The analytica 2024 was once again a great experience and a pleasure to meet many familiar and new faces live.

The personal exchange was very lively and very varied thanks to the cooperation with our partners from the Skalar Group.

We had the opportunity to explain our exhibited systems, such as the FREESTYLE ThermELUTE™ and the DEXTech Heat, briefly and concisely but also in detail to numerous interested parties.

Conclusion: The analytica is a MUST event that also brings pleasure and success.

Bulgaria embraces the benefits of the FREESTYLE SPE

The "Forensic Research Institute of the Bulgarian Ministry of Interior" significantly speeds up the processing of drug tests. The key to this success is LCTech's bidirectional FREESTYLE SPE, which automatically processes driver samples and plays an essential role in making Bulgarian road traffic safer! 

The substantial reduction in preparation time allows for considerably faster court proceedings, as reported by Bulgaria's Prime Minister Nikolaj Denkow, Deputy Prime Minister Mariya Gabriel and Interior Minister Kalin Stoyanov on the country's news channels. The politicians see this as an crucial step in the fight against drug-related traffic accidents and for more justice, especially for traumatized survivors of traffic victims.

Application note "Extraction of PFAS from Soil Using EluCLEAN® PFAS SPE Columns"

This AppNote shows a new single SPE cartridge solution with a polymeric sorbent optimized for PFAS enrichment. The EluCLEAN® PFAS - WAX/GCB SPE column can equivalently replace the dispersing clean-up step and the WAX SPE cartridge used in US EPA 1633 (4th draft). This innovative method saves valuable time and costs.
