Application Note: Automated MALDI Target Spotting for Proteomics Research on the MICROLAB® STAR
22 July 2015

This application note describes a reliable, walk-away automated method for producing high quality protein spots for MALDI-TOF analysis using the MICROLAB® STAR Proteomics Workstation. Fast, automated protein characterization is critical for large-scale proteomic research, and target identification is often performed by MALDI-TOF. Automated MALDI targeting with disposable tops can present a challenge due to the imprecise positioning of disposable times.
