Matrix assisted laser desorption/ ionisation- time of flight facility

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization is a soft ionization technique used in mass spectrometry, allowing the analysis of biomolecules (biopolymers such as DNA, proteins, peptides and sugars) and large organic molecules (such as polymers and other macromolecules). It is used for the study of protein/peptide characterization, polymer analysis, glycan analysis, nucleic acids & small molecule analysis.
