Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization
Surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization (SALDI; introduced by Jan Sunner, Edward Dratz, and Yu-Chie Chen in 1995) is an ionization technique used for analyzing biomolecules by mass spectrometry [1,2]. In its first embodiment, it used graphite matrix . At present, laser desorption/ionization methods using other inorganic matrices, such as nanomaterials, are often regarded as SALDI variants. A related method named "ambient SALDI" - which is a combination of conventional SALDI with ambient mass spectrometry incorporating the DART ion source - has also been demonstrated .
