Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) is one of the two main ionization techniques in biological MS.  Its advantages are easy off-line sample preparation, high tolerance to contaminants and additives, and high speed analysis.  These properties are highly desirable for automated large-scale clinical proteomic analysis.  Thus, MALDI MS has already been used extensively in areas such as biomarker screening and discovery, biotyping of bacteria and other disease microbes, as well as imaging of clinical specimens.

This talk will provide an introduction into MALDI and its potential for clinical analysis, and an overview and future outlook of its application in large-scale automated clinical proteomics.
