Mass spectrometry imaging
Vrkoslav, Vladimír ; Strnad, Štěpán ; Kučera, L.
The course will focus on MALDI mass spectrometry imaging. Knowledge and procedures of sample preparation, matrix application, measurement, and evaluation of MALDI MSI will be summarized. The first part will be followed by a block dedicated to the practical experience of MALDI MSI of lipids,metabolites, and other analytes on tissue sections and other planar surfaces. We will also explain MSI by other ionization techniques (DESI, DAPPI, LAESI, etc.)
Mass Spectrometry Imaging of Metformin in Tissue Sections

Mass spectrometry imaging is a powerful technique suitable for visualization of the distribution of a wide variety of compounds within tissue sections. The main aim of the study was the development and optimization of a sample preparation procedure allowing determination of the distribution of orally dosed metformin in mice kidney sections. Metformin is the first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The optimization of the sample preparation step before imaging experiments included the selection of a suitable matrix and the optimization of various parameters of MALDI analysis. 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid was identified as the best matrix providing highest sensitivity. A sublimation method was successfully used for the matrix deposition. The highest relative concentration of metformin was found in the inner zone of kidney 30 minutes after the drug administration.
