For MALDI Imaging, CCI will provide advanced expertise for study design, feasibility and sample collection as well as for correlative imaging with other bioimaging techniques including immunohistochemistry and histology.
The staff at CCI will provide the whole IMS service from sample preparation to data acquisition and initial data analysis. Following an initial project meeting, the user can decide whether to start with a pilot project to further establish feasibility and hypothesis generation for a fixed price or proceed with a more large-scale study at costs/sample.
For each experiment, the user will provide fresh frozen specimen that can be processed for imaging of metabolites, lipids, endogenous peptides and small proteins.
In addition, to MALDI IMS, CCI will assist in planning and performing complementary microscopy experiments from the same or adjacent tissue sections.
Further, CCI will provide expertise for appropriate image analysis and statistical methods to investigate the generated imaging data.
NOTE: This full service is subject to feasibility as well as availability of our resources, and the pricing needs to be negotiated based on sample size and types of requested analyses. For more information please see MALDI-IMS prices and/or contact us.
