Mass Spectrometry at the IND

The IND houses multiple mass spectrometers (MS) that research staff use for a variety of studies. These include the following:
  • Bruker SolariX ESI/MALDI-7T FT-ICR MS: Used for screening of drug distribution in different pathologies using MALDI-Imaging and for identifying small molecules and peptides using MALDI-MS.
