An automated MALDI matrix deposition system offering speed, reproducibility, and the smallest available crystals for sub-micron resolution mass spectrometry imaging.
Solvent-free matrix deposition via sublimation offers several advantages over typical spraying methods. It can often improve image resolution, as no solvent is ever introduced to the surface sample to induce analyte delocalization.
HTX AN-50 – MALDI MSI of Fingerprints
Matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) allows for the generation of molecular maps from a variety of materials. While MALDI MSI has thus far been most heavily utilized in the fields of pharmacology, analytical chemistry, and “omics” level studies, this technology offers tremendous opportunities in the field of forensic science as well.
