The localisation of different compounds in a biological sample can be obtained using spatial imaging techniques.

Biological Tissue Imaging

A further application relevent to the spatial imaging concept outlined here is the chemical imaging of biological tissue samples. This is very relevant in areas such as drug research where, for example, the localisation of an administered drug is of great importance.

With biological tissues the increased speed of analysis offered by the PImMS sensor means that samples suffer less degredation associated with ex vivo analysis. Less degradation means that results are more reliable and that further analysis using different techniques could still be an option afterwards.
