Megapixel Tissue Imaging at High-Speed: Evaluation of a MALDI-TOF Prototype
29 July 2015

MALDI Imaging (Mass Spectrometry Imaging, MSI) is a spatially resolved, label-free analytical technique for direct analysis of biological samples. Acquisition speed and sample throughput are usually a limiting factor in MSI experiments, in particular in clinical research. This scientific poster, presented at ASMS 2015, presents initial data from a production prototype of a next generation MALDI-TOF instruments, enabling acquisition speeds of up to 50 pixel (spectra) per second at pixel sizes of 10 μm and smaller.
