Versatile Protein Identification Using AP-MALDI Ion Trap Mass Spectrometry (PDF)

April 29, 2004

New developments in matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) technology enable decoupling of the ionization source from the time-of-flight mass analyzer for operation at atmospheric pressure (AP-MALDI). This technique also can be integrated with other types of mass analyzers, such as the ion trap.
