Laser Ablation ICP-MS – University of Copenhagen

Microscope-assisted mass spectrometry

  • Maps multi-elemental compositions directly from solid surfaces at concentrations lower than 1 µg g-1 DM.
  • In scanning mode the system can perform multi-elemental bioimaging of soft tissue (e.g. plant and animal tissue) with a lateral resolution down to 1-2 µm.
  • The first system installed in Europe.
