A technology that can obtain high-resolution, micrometer-sized images for mass spectrometric analysis without sample preparation has been developed. DGIST Research Fellow Jae Young Kim and Chair-professor Dae Won Moon's team succeeded in developing the precise analysis and micrometer-sized imaging of bio samples using a small and inexpensive laser.

DGIST announced that Research Fellow Jae Young Kim in the Department of Robotics Engineering and Chair-professor Dae Won Moon's team developed a technology that can analyze experiment samples without any preparation processing. Due to its ability to obtain high-resolution mass spectrometric images without an experimental environment using a 'continuous wave laser,' the technology is expected to be applied widely in medicine and medical diagnosis fields.

Advance - Preparations - Mass - Imaging - Samples

Many advance preparations are needed for the mass spectrometric imaging of biometric samples using 'specimen,' which involves thinly cutting sample prior to analysis. The specimen must be prepared artificially since it cannot be analyzed accurately at normal room temperature or atmospheric pressure. To develop a convenient analysis technology and ease this burden, Research Fellow Kim began his research.

The research team installed a lens carrying...
