Mass Spectral Imaging
Our work and advances in ToF-SIMS imaging and data processing has prompted significant interest among biomedical academic as well as the clinical research community. Utilizing the newer cluster ion sources allows us to get 3-D images of cells and tissues as well. We continue to further advancement in this area with the addition of new instrumentation as well as improved data processing. Newer advancements have involved image registration to correlate image data acquired on different techniques and statistical analysis of multiple data.
