Three-dimensional (3D) imaging of molecular distributions offers insight into the correlation between biochemical processes and the spatial organization of a biological tissue. Simultaneous identification of diverse molecules is a virtue of mass spectrometry (MS) that in combination with ambient ion sources enables the atmospheric pressure investigation of… CONTINUE READING
