Laser Spray Ionization (LSI) Method for Mass Spectrometry Imaging
Technology Summary: Laser Spray Ionization (LSI) is a novel inlet ionization method for mass spectrometry invented at WSU which can be used to create predominately multiply charged ions from solid samples at atmospheric pressure. Unlike MALDI ionization methods which are typically limited to producing singly charged species for larger molecules, LS...

Next Generation MRI Contrast Imaging Agent
WSU has developed a new class of contrast agents that are effective at ultra-high field strengths (>3 tesla) in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) where current clinical agents severely decline in effectiveness. Our new agents are based on the metal Eu(II) which is novel compared to current agents that are based on Gd(III). The difference between ...

Imaging Tandem Mass Spectrometry: Reduction to Practice
Currently, tandem mass spectrometry is typically performed by selecting a single mass peak in a time of flight or quadrupole mass spectrometer, which is then fragmented through collision, after which the products are mass-selected in a quadrupole or similar secondary mass spectrometer. A Wayne State University researcher has developed an alter...

3D Soundscaping
Researchers at WSU have developed a 3D Soundscaping technology that enables one to take sound measurements to a new level by locating sound sources, visualize their resultant sound pressure fields in 3D space. In traditional sound sensing applications, sound is measured using microphones and sound pressure levels and spectra are measured at survey ...
