Infrared Laser Ablation Microsampling for Mass Spectrometry Imaging (CHE-1709526) is a $0.35M award to Louisiana State University and Baylor University from the National Science Foundation Division of Chemistry to support the development of new techniques for biological imaging. Thank you NSF for 20+ years of support.
The Continuum Minilite 532 nm laser arrived February 25. This was funded by a LIFT2 grant.
F. Donnarumma, F. Cao, & K. K. Murray, J. Am. Soc. Mass Spectrom. (2015) DOI: 10.1007/s13361-015-1249-0 We have developed a laser ablation sampling technique for matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) analyses of in-situ digested tissue proteins. Infrared laser ablation was used to remove biomolecules from tissue sections for […]
