UC Berkeley researchers and others developed a new experimental setup for spatially resolved ambient infrared laser ablation mass spectrometry (AIR LAB-MS) that uses an infrared microscope with an infinity-corrected reflective objective and a continuous flow solvent probe coupled to a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer is described.
The transfer efficiency is significantly higher than the values reported for similar techniques.
