High Resolution Laser Mass Spectrometry Bioimaging

K. K. Murray, , C. A. Seneviratne, and S. Ghorai, “High Resolution Laser Mass Spectrometry Bioimaging” Methods 104 (2016) 118–126; doi:10.1016/j.ymeth.2016.03.002 Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) was introduced more than five decades ago with secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and a decade later with laser desorption/ionization (LDI) mass spectrometry (MS). Large biomolecule imaging by matrix-assisted laser […]

Laser Ablation with Vacuum Capture for MALDI Mass Spectrometry of Tissue

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 […]
