LEAP Technologies, Inc. was founded in 1989 by three liquid handling automation veterans. Applying liquid handling to chromatography and mass spectroscopy for a variety of labs was the focus. LEAP started as a one-product company representing a fledgling Swiss company, CTC Analytics. GC applications in environmental labs were the main market. LEAP's expertise was integrating its GC autosampler and the headspace sampler into GC and GC–MS systems. Flexibility and portability were the key to selling these very reliable samplers. A second product line was launched that served tablet dissolution applications in pharmaceutical companies. LEAP applied that know-how and launched the Opt-Diss, a unique fiber optic UV system adaptable to all waterbath testers.

LEAP has grown with the successful introduction of CTC's PAL product line, which is well known in big pharma as well as in food, forensic, petrochem, among others industries, and for customizing these front-end automation instruments and developing software. Recently, LEAP added analyzers for the polymer market. For the future, we believe that customization with specific software solutions will be increasingly important, and that personalized attention to our customers should continue to be the focus.

LCGC North America has been instrumental in building awareness of our company in the North American markets, and continues to be instrumental with new product releases and ads as LEAP introduces new applications, instruments, and accessories. We also use the subscriber list to evaluate potential market-specific and geographic sales opportunities.
