MALDI tissue imaging of tissues has become a promising technique for tracking biomarkers while determining their location and structural characterization. We have now developed specific targeting probes (oligonucleotides, antibodies), named Tag-Mass. This approach is based on probes modified with a photocleavable linker coupled with a tag cleaved and detected using mass spectrometry. Tag-Mass development is the key for a rapid, sensitive, and accurate approach to correlate levels of expression of different mRNA or proteins in diseases.
