The aim of this course is to present modern methods of Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) for the analysis of complex tissue sections. These techniques like MALDI (Matric assisted laser desorption and ionization) Imaging or Desorption ionization electrospray imaging (DESI) are especially used for the analysis of tumor tissues. The potential as well as the limitations of these label-free spectrometric techniques towards a more differentiated medical diagnosis will be discussed.
Why (MALDI) imaging?
