MALDI consumables for added convenience and productivity in MALDI Imaging

Taking MALDI Imaging capabilities to the next level by simplifying lab workflows. Use Bruker’s MALDI consumables for the best MALDI Imaging experience.

MALDI consumables to make Imaging workflows easy for everyone

Maybe you’ve heard of Mass Spectrometry Imaging but have been scared off by thoughts that something so groundbreaking can’t be easy to implement in the lab? From Bruker - the leading developer of cutting edge MALDI Imaging technology – come consumables and accessories designed to complement each other and demonstrate how simple it can all be while ensuring highest preparation quality.

fleXmatrix - the quality needed for high resolution imaging while keeping your instrument cleaner for longer.

fleXmatrix kits for lipid, peptide and protein imaging enable easy and convenient preparation of matrix solutions. Coming in convenient-portions and able to quickly and completely dissolve, fleXmatrix simplifies and speeds up sample preparation. The extra purity of fleXmatrix kits removes potential sources of contamination, keeping your Bruker MALDI Imaging instrument in optimal working condition.

Increase productivity, simplify and streamline processes by using IntelliSlides

Unlike other MALDI Imaging slides, IntelliSlides are pre-inscribed with a unique bar code and tracking number, and have registration marks on the conductive surface to indicate where to place your tissue sample, helping to streamline and simplify lab processes. With specialized software, IntelliSlides allow convenient automation of workflows on the Bruker’s timsTOF fleX and rapifleX platforms. From the sample preparation process, to image registration, sources of inefficiency are eliminated with IntelliSlides.

In addition, you’ll get Bruker’s experienced technical support team for application help, as well as protocols for superior performance. Bruker’s MALDI consumables slot in easily to our established workflows. We consider it our purpose to provide our users with smooth, rapid and convenient workflows, supporting you in your research and enable optimized results in the best possible way.

fleXmatrix™ - MALDI matrix designed especially for high resolution imaging

From the MALDI market leader comes fleXmatrix, for the analysis of lipids, peptides and proteins. Specially prepared extra pure matrix to enable another level in MALDI Imaging experiments.

Quality MALDI matrix to keep your systems cleaner and increase uptime

By being extra pure and coming pre-portioned, fleXmatrix removes potential sources of contamination, simplifying laboratory workflows and keeping your instrument in optimal working conditions for longer periods of time.

Exactly what you need for SpatialOMx workflows

In SpatialOMx, MALDI Imaging is used to identify and specify regions of interest for X-Omics analyses by mapping molecule distributions across tissue sections. fleXmatrix kits enable easy and convenient preparation of MALDI matrix solutions for measurement of lipids, glycans, peptides or proteins with MALDI Imaging.

Features and Benefits of fleXmatrix

  • Extra pure to avoid potential sources of sample or instrument contamination
  • Fulfills all requirements for reliable MALDI ionization
  • Portioned for easy preparation
  • Rapidly dissolving; complete mixing possible with short sonication times
  • Perfectly suited for use with IntelliSlides™
  • Qualified for all of Bruker’s MALDI-Imaging platforms
  • Easily removed from tissue samples after MALDI measurement for e.g. histological staining

IntelliSlides™ - Maximize information content per pixel with intelligence

Specifically designed to simplify MALDI Imaging workflows, IntelliSlides are the optimal tool for mapping molecules across your samples.  Your effortless time-to-result has never been faster.

Simplify MALDI Imaging experiments

IntelliSlides are the ideal sample target for MALDI Imaging. Potential sources of inefficiency are removed by having permanent inscriptions on the conductive surface. These inscriptions streamline the User experience by aiding sample tracking and indicating where to place the tissue sample. Always correctly labelled, always oriented properly, IntelliSlides simplify the way to your results.

Perfect for SpatialOMx

In SpatialOMx workflows on the timsTOF fleX, MALDI Imaging is used to map molecule distributions across tissue sections, thereby identifying regions of interest and focusing X-Omics analyses to specific cell populations. With IntelliSlides and specialized software, the image registration process on the timsTOF fleX is automated at the touch of a button. Quickly aligning the target sample with the timsTOF fleX laser optics, the workflow set up is brought down to three minutes with IntelliSlides, allowing you to more rapidly and accurately match the chemical information to every pixel.

Compatible with histology

IntelliSlides have the same dimensions of standard microscopy slides and are compatible with common histology stains and procedures, such as hematoxylin and eosin. With the permanent inscriptions, there’s no more concern that registration marks (also known as ‘teach marks’) will dissolve in histology solvents, allowing for easier co-registration of post-measurement stained tissues with the corresponding MALDI dataset.

Features and Benefits of IntelliSlides 

  • Fulfills all requirements for reliable MALDI ionization
  • All inscriptions on conductive slide surface
  • Permanent registration marks (teach marks) indicate where to place the sample and are used for alignment within MALDI instrument
  • Unique serial number and barcode to simplify sample tracking
  • Automated image acquisition set up with fleXimaging 5.1 and above
  • Compatible with histology and microscopy techniques
  • IntelliSlides are a single-use consumable to avoid potential sources of contamination
