Mass spectrometry imaging allows precise mapping of molecular species within tissue sections from animal models or patients.
The platform offers imaging experiments by MALDI (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization) mass spectrometry on frozen or fixed tissues for the analysis of proteins, peptides, lipids and metabolites. For this, we have the equipment necessary for the realization of tissue sections (cryomicrotome, microtome), the processing of the slides according to the analyzes sought, the acquisition of data by mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF-TOF) as well as for the statistical processing. data.
In addition to carrying out these experiments, the platform provides users who so wish with the appropriate equipment for carrying out studies in imaging by mass spectrometry and training in the key.
