Our MALDI-MSI services provide high-resolution mass spec spatially resolved data from tissue samples. MALDI-MSI is a widely used imaging workflow offering a large body of validated protocols.

Tissue sections are mounted on standard MALDI plates and prepared using our proprietary UltraPure MALDI Matrices. We offer more than 10 different matrix chemistries for a variety of specific applications. Samples are analyzed using a Bruker ultrafleXtreme™ TOF/TOF mass spectrometer. Standard data reports contain up to five contour plots of desired m/z of interest, as well as an average MS fingerprint of the entire sample. Further contour plots and MS/MS confirmation can also be performed



  • Direct mapping onto optical image of tissue section
