Thermo Scientific MALDI Matrices are highly purified, recrystallized reagents packaged in convenient single-use tubes sufficient for analyzing up to 96 samples by matrix assisted laser desorption ionization. This MALDI Matrix Sample Pack contains 8 tubes each of CHCA, SA and DHB reagents.

Features of MALDI Matrices:

• Single-use packaging saves time and reduces waste
• Provide accurate quantity of matrix every time

Matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) matrices produce the cleanest mass spectrometric (MS) spectra when they are recrystallized and prepared daily, which is inconvenient and typically results in significant waste. The unique packaging of purified, recrystallized alpha-cyano-4-hydroxy-cinnamic acid (CHCA), sinapinic acid (SA) and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB) MALDI matrices makes it easy to prepare high-quality MALDI reagents in minutes.

MALDI and electrospray ionization (ESI) are the most common methods to ionize peptides for MS analysis. MALDI is widely used because it is significantly faster than ESI and the ionized molecules are almost exclusively singly charged, making interpretation easier. Also, MALDI is readily automated and highly sensitive. This powerful method for MS peptide analysis is now easier to perform with our single-use, highly pure MALDI matrices that are exceptionally convenient to use.
