|The Tecan Freedom EVO® workstation enables MALDI-spotting for subsequent mass spectrometry analysis, automating steps for desalting and MALDI-spotting.
Peptide samples obtained from 1D- or 2D-gel protein digestion need to be desalted. Eliminating of salt from the sample on the EVO workstation is done by ZipTips (C-18) columns.
Peptides are spotted with a matrix to the MALDI targets. MALDI targets of different dimensions and manufacturers can be used on EVO workstation to allow error-free and fast throughput of spotting.
