Subsequent chemistries can also be performed on the molecules on these surfaces prior to their analysis by mass spectrometry. One such MALDI-based approach has been dubbed SELDI for surface-enhanced laser desorption ionisation. Since the laser or sample surface can be easily repositioned during analysis, most MALDI-based mass spectrometers today make use of a sample stage onto which 100 to several hundred samples are loaded. The plates also resemble the size of a microgel or blot (some 10 cm2) to facilitate the direct transfer of samples (particularly proteins) after their separation by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE).

16). focusing Since the initial kinetic energy of the ions 1/2rnv2equals ze I f , the initial velocity of the ions is dependent on the potential, V, through which they are accelerated. 19. 22. 22) Therefore specific values of V or B allow ions unique in mass-tocharge to pass through the magnetic field along a path to the detector. Variations in either Vor B will cause these same ions to follow a different trajectory and collide with the walls of the flight tube. 16, only ions following the centre trajectory reach the detector at any set of 45 The Mass Spectrometer V and B values.

Several computer algorithms have been developed to perform these calculations automatically and to display the output on a molecular weight scale in what has become known as a deconvoluted mass spectrum. One such algorithm considers the mass of the charge-bearing ions as a variable and constructs a three-dimensional deconvoluted mass spectrum from which the identity of the charge-bearing species can be determined and not assumed. 9 Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Ionisation A related approach that is also capable of ionising polar molecules directly from solution is known as atmospheric pressure chemical ionisation (APCI).
