Applications and Data Examples

MALDI Imaging

Add AP-MALDI to your LC-MS instrument and perform Mass Spec Imaging ( MSI) at a fraction of the cost of a dedicated MALDI Mass Spectrometer. The MassTech AP-MALDI source can be added to Thermo, Agilent, AB-Sciex LC-MS instruments to give you MALDI imaging capability. Using optical fibres to transmit the laser beam directly onto the sample mounted on an X-Y stage, any sample mounted on theplate holder can be 'scanned'. The resulting data can be visual represented in various proprietary and public domain packages.

Tissue Imaging

The data to the left was produced using an AP-MALDI / Orbitrap MS imaging experiment performed by Dr. Gilles Frache, Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology / Materials research and Technology (MRT). The mouse brain was obtained through the courtesy of Dr. M. Buttini, Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine". The tissue was imaged using a 250 micron fibre at an instrument resolution of 60,000 and the whole aquisition took under 90 minutes
