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.
- Validated protocols are available for DHB, CHCA, SA, DAN, 9-AA, and Norhamane.
- Custom Vacuum Chamber – The HTX Sublimator features a rectangular vacuum chamber that achieve sublimation conditions extremely quickly to maximise efficiency for imaging MS sample preparation.
- Timer Controlled Sublimation Step – Electronic controls and pre-defined matrix deposition protocols ensure sample-to-sample reproducibility and optimum matrix surface quality.
