Analysis of lipids from crude lung tissue extracts by desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and pattern recognition.

Abstract

A method is described using desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) mass spectrometry (MS) to obtain phospholipid mass spectral profiles from crude lung tissue extracts. The measured DESI mass spectral lipid fingerprints were then analyzed by unsupervised learning principal components analysis (PCA). This combined approach was used to differentiate the… (More)
