SINGLE PARTICLE ELEMENTAL ANALYSIS – IMAGING MASS CYTOMETER FACILITY

Grant number: LE200100053 | Funding period: 2020 - 2022

Completed

Abstract

This proposal aims to establish an Australian facility for next generation high resolution inductively coupled plasma time-of-flight mass spectrometry (icpTOF-MS), coupled with high speed laser ablation (LA) imaging. The facility, being the first in Australia, will allow for the entire elemental/isotopic make-up of individual particles and cells in suspension, or within a solid sample, to be performed simultaneously. This is particularly significant when materials are rare, or not readily available. Expected outcomes include the generation of new knowledge and training in the industrial, biological, defence and environmental research sectors and the significant enhancement of Australia’s lea..
