Imaging Mass Spectrometry Mini-Symposium

  • Overview
  • Venue
Date(s): March 1, 2018
Time: 12:30pm - 5:05pm
Location: New York, NY
Language: English

Imaging Mass Spectrometry (IMS) allows high resolution spatial localization of metabolites, proteins, lipids, and drugs within tissue sections in situ, to assess metabolic changes at the cellular level. Recent breakthroughs including the coupling of different imaging and ionization techniques coupled with orthogonal technologies such as ion mobility has led to extra levels of sensitivity and resolution, leading to practical uses of IMS in the clinic, pathology, food, and other areas. This mini-symposium will feature speakers working in all areas of IMS, and show how their work has impacted their respective fields.
