About MALDI-TOF MS (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry) Mass Spectrometry (MS) is a technique used to screen simultaneously a multitude of molecules and determine the identity of microbes by exciting them with laser and analysing their protein pattern by analysing their individual mass-to-charge ratio.
They include ion-chromatogram extraction for mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) analysis of the expected metabolites, isotope cluster analysis if the metabolites are expected to display unique isotopic patterns and comparative analysis against control samples.
Electrospray: An ionization strategy used to create a gas phase; charged analytes that can be separated based on their mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) and detected by mass spectrometry.
Ionized proteins are accelerated in an electrical field and their mass-to-charge ratio measured.
