Desorption and Ionization Mass Spectrometry in Research Laboratories

The past decade has brought exponential growth in the number of mass spectrometry (MS) ionization techniques based on desorption and ionization (DI) processes. Here, the three key applications for DI are discussed: rapid, in situ screening; direct analysis of extracted samples or of planar chromatography spots; and scanning samples along x and y axes.
