University of Florida researchers use flowprobe in deep brain stimulation studies on Parkinson’s Disease
Liquid-microjunction surface sampling (LMJ-SS) is an ambient ionization technique based on the continuous flow of solvent using an in situ micro-extraction device, in which solvent moves through the probe, drawing in the analytes in preparation for ionization using an electrospray ionization (ESI) source. However, unlike traditional mass spectrometry (MS) techniques it operates under ambient pressure and requires no sample preparation, thereby making it ideal for rapid sampling of thicker tissue sections for electrophysiological and other neuroscientific research studies.
