In the collaboration with Institute of Chemical Technology and Analytics (TU Wien) we ran the project on collecting both elemental and molecular information from the very same slice! The methods employed – µXRF for elemental and MALDI for molecular information. The sample on which we tested the workflow could be easily bought on market – chicken feet (phalanx section was measured). Yummy!

The project is described in the paper “Multimodal imaging of undecalcified tissue sections by MALDI MS and μXRF” published by Analyst.
