High-Powered Imaging Techniques on SYNAPT G2-Si Mass Spectrometer Advance Proteomics, Metabolomics, Cell Biology, and Research Pathology and Histology


Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) today introduced a new full spectrum molecular imaging system for advanced molecular imaging of tissue samples. Based on the Waters® SYNAPT® G2-Si mass spectrometer, the system is the first ever to allow scientists to access enhanced matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) and desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) with ion mobility separation (IMS) in a single mass spectrometry platform.

The imaging capabilities of this new system enable research laboratories to pinpoint with greater specificity the distribution of large and small molecules within tissue samples. Information derived from imaging experiments can greatly benefit cancer, cardiovascular and neuro-degenerative research by measuring the distribution of molecules in cells and tissues. MS imaging also allows researchers to identify different tissue types based on their molecular composition.

“By combining MALDI with DESI and ion mobility on the same instrument, Waters brings molecular imaging into a new realm,” said Dr. Jeff Mazzeo, Sr. Director, Health Sciences, Waters Division. “We are committed to giving cell biologists, biochemists, clinical researchers and analytical scientists the tools they need to obtain a maximum amount of information to advance their research into human health. The new full spectrum molecular imaging system combines and optimizes Waters' mass spectrometry technologies to deliver a level of detail and molecular information beyond that of any individual imaging technique."

Waters will commence shipments of its full spectrum molecular imaging system in the third quarter of 2015.


About Imaging Mass Spectrometry for Biomedical Science and Clinical Research

The push for more information to unravel the molecular complexities of biological samples is the driving force behind innovation in mass spectrometry imaging for higher spatial and molecular resolution. Mass spectrometry imaging technology, with its ability to discriminate between thousands of different molecular ions simultaneously, can now play a central role by combining traditional tissue analysis with definitive molecular analysis in a number of basic and clinical research settings.

MS imaging is capable of measuring a broad spectrum of endogenous (originating from within) and exogenous (originating from outside) analytes in tissues whether these are proteins, peptides, drugs and their metabolites or lipids. With the “molecular signature” obtained by MS imaging, researchers are better informed regarding the basic, yet complicated, biological pathways which make up cell and tissue functions and drug effects. MS imaging is significantly altering the disease research landscape by providing new insights into the understanding of the mechanisms of cancer, cardiovascular disease and neuro-degenerative diseases.

By virtue of its ability to determine the distribution of drugs molecules and their metabolites, MS imaging is expected to also have a dramatic impact on drug discovery and development.
