The new MALDI-solariX combines the extreme analyti- cal performance of the solariX FTMS (resolving power > 1,000,000 at m/z 400 at 7.0 tesla field strength) with a robust and highly sensitive MALDI source to provide an unrivalled platform for high performance molecular ima- ging of small molecules (e.g. drug, metabolites, lipids) in tissue. © Business Wire
announces a novel MALDI molecular imaging system based on the extreme performance of the solariX FTMS. The new MALDI-solariX combines the extreme analytical performance of the solariX FTMS (resolving power > 1,000,000 at m/z 400 at 7.0 tesla field strength) with a robust and highly sensitive MALDI source to provide an unrivalled platform for high performance molecular imaging of small mole- cules (e.g. drug, metabolites, lipids) in tissue. The new solariX MALDI source is based on a dual ion funnel design that includes the combination of MAL- DI and ESI. This unique source is capable of immedi- ate and effortless switching between the two ioniza- tion methods. The combination of MALDI with the solariX FTMS addresses a need in the pharmaceutical industry and in academic research institutions for a high performance imaging solution targeted spe- cifically to the tissue distribution of small molecule drugs and metabolites, endogenous metabolic spatial profiling, and lipid imaging. http://www.bdal.com/solarix
