New publication: Direct analysis of intact proteins from Escherichia coli colonies by LESA mass spectrometry

Dedicated to Science, Dedicated to You

Researchers in the UK have demonstrated the use of Liquid Extraction Surface Analysis (LESA) on the TriVersa NanoMate for top-down identification of proteins directly from living bacterial colonies grown in Petri dishes, without sample preparation. The method offers “improved sampling precision and could be useful for spatial profiling of bacterial colonies or analysis of contaminated surfaces.”
