Mass Spectrometry Imaging for Biomedical Research

Combined imaging techniques yield comprehensive results

Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging combines several analytical techniques in a single platform to probe wide spectrum of spatially distributed molecular ions to understand cellular function and physiology or to monitor the distribution of drug compounds throughout a tissue or organism.

By integrating DESI, MALDI, and ion mobility mass spectrometry techniques with a single informatics solution, Waters Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging systems provide detailed molecular information that exceeds any single imaging technique currently available.

  • Discover, identify, and measure the spatial distribution of target or endogenous molecules
  • Effectively study a wide range of large and small molecules
  • Perform Imaging studies without the need for labeled probes
  • Extract the maximum level of information from a single sample
  • Obtain definitive molecular distribution of key compounds

Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging capabilities allow visualization of wider range of molecular ions and provide key insights into the underlying mechanisms of cancer, cardiovascular and neuro-degenerative diseases. In other studies, Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging can be used to identify different tissue types, differentiate diseased and normal tissue, and identify the boundary of healthy and diseased tissue based on their molecular composition.
