MALDI-TOF system

MALDI-TOF system

Matrix-assisted laser desorption-ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometer system. A system used to determine the molecular weight of biopolymers, ranging from 100s to 300,000 daltons at picomolar to femtomolar levels.

The MALDI-TOF system’s development was made possible by advances in detectors, fast digitisation circuitry, microprocessors, pulsed lasers and vacuum crystallisation.
