In 1989 LEAP Technologies was formed in Carrboro, NC in order to
serve automation needs in the analytical laboratory (Chromatography and
Mass Spectrometry related). LEAP delivers the automation advantage to
R&D, pharmaceutica, polymer, food processing, forensic, and academic
LEAP adds value with higher efficiency, error reduction and tighter
specifications for your analytical results are the value that we add.
Wherever there is a repetitive process for sample collection, sample
preparation or delivery to analytical instrument - automation will
reduce or eliminate many possible error sources.
LEAP’s automation solutions let you walk away, during a busy day or
when you are asleep at night. Only highly reliable robotic equipment is
worth considering. LEAP has become the automation application house of
choice that even the large analytical instrument companies refer their
customers to. The name LEAP stands for Laboratory Environmental Analytical and Pharmaceutical. LEAP also signifies jumping ahead with technical innovation, which we love to do every opportunity we get.
LEAP has always found a way to integrate with the larger instrument companies (see partner’s page) and had to look for emerging techniques (see e.g. Proteomics)
in the laboratory to add value to its business. We often uncover with
our customers together where shortcomings in their sample prep process
go undiscovered for historic or other reasons. We analyze the process
and customize a new solution.
The biggest challenges for most of our customers is precise, fast and
reliable sample prep before loading a sample onto an analyzer or
LEAP’s name is synonymous with great support (see support offerings), flexible and innovative ideas (see Customized Solutions).
With today’s digital communication and fast proliferation of new
analytical techniques LEAP offers its products and services world wide
(world wide support network) through a carefully selected network of
smaller companies that share the same spirit.
