HAMAMATSU Photonics K.K.「Ionization-assisting substrates DIUTHAME」microsite

New measurement-assisting tool for all MALDI users

Hamamatsu offers ionization-assisting substrates called DIUTHAME that support ionization in mass spectrometry in place of matrix that is currently used for MALDI (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization) and also eliminate the cumbersome sample pretreatment process. DIUTHAME brings high reproducibility and ease-of-handling to mass spectrometry by serving as a completely new tool that can readily be used by all MALDI mass spectrometer users.


DIUTHAME is an acronym for “Desorption Ionization Using Through Hole Alumina Membrane”


Features - NO matrix required -
