Kristen's research on LADI featured in article on mass spectrometry imaging techniques

In an article by Biocompare talking about advancements in mass spectrometry imaging , Dr. Chip Cody of JEOL discusses his excitement about our newly-developed technique, Laser-assisted DART Imaging Mass Spectrometry (LADI-MS). He talks about Kristen's research, in collaboration with Dr. Ed Espinoza from U.S. Fish and Wildlife Forensic Lab, regarding the imaging and mapping of ion spatial distributions in endangered wood species.
