New Article

Updated: Feb 11, 2021

The Journal of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry has just published our latest article in which we look at zebrafish eyes using imaging mass spectrometry. We analyzed frozen eye cross sections of zebrafish larvae using cryo-ToF-SIMS and we visualized the retinal pigment epithelium with mass peaks that we attribute to leucodopachrome, an intermediate in the biosynthesis of melanin. A first!

A side project dating back to my time as a PhD student at the University of Nottingham ultimately led to a publication in Scientific Reports: Anderson, H.J., Sahoo, J.K., Wells, J. et al. Cell-control

It was a pleasure and a privilege to be a co-author of this excellent review article in Analytical Chemistry titled ‘Multimodal Imaging Based on Vibrational Spectroscopies and Mass Spectrometry Imag
