Development of Matrix Compounds to be Used for Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization (MALDI)
Dr. Bach's lab focuses on the development of an ideal combination of matrix compounds to be used for Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization (MALDI) time-of-flight mass spectrometry that will result in ionizing a broad range of compounds from a sample so that the resulting mass spectrum will be representative of what compounds are in the materials being studied. This will have direct applications to developing accurate molecular profiles of tissues and nanomaterials.
