MALDI Guided SpatialOMx®

MALDI Guided SpatialOMx

Reveal tumor cell subpopulations in greater molecular detail

Whether you are probing the cellular proteome, lipidome or metabolome, MALDI Imaging provides a literal map of molecular expression in the specimen that can be compared to reveal regional changes. Often, knowing where molecular expression changes can be just as important as knowing if expression changes. This can be especially true if certain compounds are highly spatially concentrated or if molecules co-distribute in specific compartments, vital information that is lost when examining only homogenized samples. MALDI Guided SpatialOMx® for untargeted discovery offers the most complete molecular range with contextualized spatial information providing important clues into intercellular communications networks that are integral to cancer growth.
