desi desi

DESI QiT MS

DESI imaging station in Fenandez Lab. Motion is controled by a computer controled (x,y) stage. This setup is coupled to a Quadrupolar Ion Trap, specifically the LCQ Deca XP Plus.

JEOL AccuTOF Mass Spectrometer

DESI DMS-TOF MS

DESI imaging station in Fenandez Lab. Motion is controled by a computer controled (x,y) stage. This setup is coupled to an AccuTOF mass spectrometer modified to accomodate a DMS filtering cell (not shown).

Multispectral imaging technologies capture spatial as well as spectral information from a sample. For example, quantum dots target specific biomarkers and emit different fluorescent spectra; or, mass spectrometry reveals different molecular distributions within a sample. OmniSpect untangles the contributions from different sources within a sample by leveraging their known spectral profiles or inferring them directly from the data.
