MALDI and Imaging SIG

The imaging and MALDI special interest group was formed in 2007 to cater for the explosion of interest in the use of mass spectrometry based imaging techniques for the study of surfaces.

As part of EU COST Action BM1104 Mass Spectrometry Imaging: New Tools for Healthcare Research a minimum reporting requirements for ms imaging experiments document is being formulated.  This would form the basis of the recommendations given to journal editors/referees as to whether the quality of data reporting in a MS imaging paper is adequate (before acceptance for publication).  The document is applicable to all ionisation techniques.

Feedback on the document is being collected via COST representatives and the discussion forum on the MALDI-MSI website.

If you are working in any form of ms imaging please have a read and give your feedback either direct or if you wish via
Professor Malcolm Clench ( or
Dr Josephine Bunch ( the other UK representative in the COST Action.

The group is intended to be a forum for all ms based imaging technologies not solely MALDI. The first activity organized by the group was a plenary lecture by Prof Richard Caprioli and a session at the 2007 BMSS Conference in Edinburgh that saw presentations on MALDI, DESI and DART based systems and applications. It is intended to develop the group by further sessions at annual conferences and one day meetings
