HTX Technologies will be sponsoring the AIMS Lab Course again this year.  Please join us for a full week of great speakers, hands-on lab practice and valuable information on implementing a robust imaging mass spectrometry workflow.  Included in the program will be several occasions to see and demo HTX equipment and discuss the latest features available on the HTX TM-Sprayer for trypsin and MALDI matrix sample preparation.

The 6th Annual ADVANCED IMAGING MASS SPECTROMETRY (AIMS.2017) Laboratory Course will be held Tuesday, April 11 - Friday, April 14, 2017 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. The AIMS.2017 Laboratory Course is a unique educational opportunity designed to teach the procedures of MALDI Imaging Mass Spectrometry. The format includes both lectures and hands-on workshops with 3 hours dedicated to on-site demos from instrument vendors. The course will cover the details of sample preparation, matrix application, instrumentation, and image and data processing. In addition, a number of technology highlights will be presented, including high-speed imaging, high-sensitivity imaging, and image fusion.

The course is designed for mid-level to senior investigators who are familiar with MALDI and have a working knowledge of mass spectrometry or histology. This course has a significant number of hands-on workshops scheduled; as a result, we do not have the capacity to introduce the technology to those without the prerequisite experience and training. For attendees that are new to one of these areas, we will provide optional introductory lectures on mass spectrometry and histology on Monday, April 10th, from 4-6 PM.
