The iMLayer matrix vapor deposition system is sample pretreatment (application of matrix) in order to perform MALDI-MS imaging using an analysis system such as the iMScope imaging mass microscope or the MALDI-7090. With the iMLayer, the deposition method has been adopted as a pretreatment method to achieve high spatial resolution. By using this method, fine matrix crystal can be produced. Also, thanks to automated control, the coating thickness is reproducibly controlled as users configure.
- Creation of finer matrix crystal grains via the deposition method
- Improved reproducibility of matrix coatings via automatic coating thickness control
- Simple touch panel operation
