Targeted mass spectrometry imaging: specific targeting mass spectrometry imaging technologies from history to perspective.

Since its introduction during the last decade, MALDI mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is now a routine technique in biology. Nevertheless, a missing link exists in MALDI MSI. Lipids, peptides/proteins, metabolites and drugs can easily be mapped using MALDI-MSI, but this technique has not yet been used to map the transcriptome, which includes microRNA, siRNA… CONTINUE READING
