MALDI Imaging Joint Facility

  • COVID-19 Update: Current Status - Last Updated April 19, 2021

    We are currently in Phase 3 of our ramp up plan, which means that core research facilities may begin allowing non-ASRC users on a limited basis, with up to 50% building occupancy allowed.

    Please review our policies for increasing on-site research activity following NYS PAUSE and check back regularly for status updates.

MALDI facility

The MALDI-TOF MS Imaging Joint Facility of the Structural Biology Initiative and Neuroscience Initiative at the ASRC at The Graduate Center, CUNY houses four core instruments: 1) Bruker Autoflex Speed TOF, 2) HTX M5 Matrix Sprayer, 3) Leica Aperio CS2 slide scanner, and 4) SCiLS MALDI Imaging Analysis workstation.

As the first core facility with MALDI-TOF MS imaging capacity in the New York metropolitan area, we are proud to provide MALDI Imaging services to research scientists including tissue preparation, matrix coating, MALDI-MS profiling, and imaging/data analysis. MALDI-MS Imaging is a powerful tool for label-free in situ profiling of proteins, lipids, metabolites and small molecules. Both research institutions and industrial enterprises are welcome to utilize our facility.

To learn more about the instruments, services, training and experimental design, please contact co-director Rinat Abzalimov at (212.413.3236) or co-director Ye He at (212.413.3182) for further information.
