Rainer Cramer, "Advances in MALDI and Laser-Induced Soft Ionization Mass Spectrometry"
English | ISBN: 331904818X | 2015 | 276 pages | PDF | 9 MB
This book covers the state-of-the-art of modern MALDI (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization) and its applications. New applications and improvements in the MALDI field such as biotyping, clinical diagnosis, forensic imaging, and ESI-like ion production are covered in detail. Additional topics include MS imaging, biotyping/speciation and large-scale, high-speed MS sample profiling, new methods based on MALDI or MALDI-like sample preparations, and the advantages of ESI to MALDI MS analysis. This is an ideal book for graduate students and researchers in the field of bioanalytical sciences.
This book also:
Showcases new techniques and applications in MALDI MS
Demonstrates how MALDI is preferable to ESI (electrospray ionization)
Illustrates the pros and cons associated with biomarker discovery studies in clinical proteomics and the various application areas, such as cancer proteomics
