Mass Spectrometry Imaging, Laser Capture Microdissection, and LC-MS/MS of the Same Tissue Section

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is able to simultaneously record the distributions of hundreds of molecules directly from tissue. Rapid direct tissue analysis is essential for MSI in order to maintain spatial localization and acceptable measurement times. The absence of an explicit analyte separation/purification step means MSI lacks the depth of coverage of LC-MS/MS. In this work, we demonstrate how atmospheric pressure MALDI-MSI enables the same tissue section to be first analyzed by MSI, to identify regions of interest that exhibit distinct molecular signatures, followed by localized proteomics analysis using laser capture microdissection isolation and LC-MS/MS.
