Description

The MALDI MS Imaging Tool (MMSIT) is a custom designed software for automated imaging of samples on a Applied Biosystems Voyager instrument. Key features of the software are:

  • Comprehensive sample database (MS Access) which is easy to interface with other applications
  • Implements seamless with the existing software from Applied Biosystems.
  • Scan range may be manually entered or the coordinates may be directly transferred from the Voyager Control
  • Control of SymBiot for electrospraying of matrix
  • Ultra-fast image acquisition by using DP-211 digitizer and NanoLase Nd:YAG laser in combination with fast data retrieval, averaging and storage routines
  • Mass spectra of image points are displayed in the Data Explorer
  • MS images are calculated using an optimized baseline correction routine
  • Scan information and image data is written into the reference mass spectrum file (.dat) created by Voyager Control – all the information is kept in one file
  • Easy export of MS images supporting drag-and-drop operation
