MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry


Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) analysis offers quick collection of simple M+1 mass spectra. A large range of samples can be analyzed with varying types of sample preparation and plating. 

An added capability of this system is mass spec imaging. Two-dimensional images can be compiled based on mass spectral information from each individual laser shot rastered across a surface.
