FlexiMass-DS are cost-effective disposable targets for MALDI analysis developed for Shimadzu Biotech. These plastic, single-use MALDI substrates are manufactured from conductive polymeric material for consistent performance. The high-quality reproducible metalized target surface is manufactured to high tolerances.
The targets are supplied in a 48-well microscope slide format making them suitable for either manual or automated sample spotting. FlexiMass-DS targets are designed for use with the Precision adaptor, which can be loaded with four targets, enabling the analysis of up to 192 samples in a single session.
The FlexiMass-DS is cost effective compared to stainless steel substrates and has no need for cleaning, minimizing sample preparation time, and the elimination of carryover issues from sample to sample. FlexiMass-DS are suitable for most types of MALDI sample and matrices and may be used with the following AXIMA systems – Assurance, Confidence, Performance, Resonance, TOF2, LNR, CFR, CFRplus, QIT.
