The SunDigest brings reproducibility and stability to on-tissue enzyme digestions, which are crucial to Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) of proteins and glycans, and potentially other analytes which can be enzymatically liberated from tissue sections on microscope slides. It may also be useful for the fMSI process, where we feed endogenous enzymes in the tissue with specific substrates.

The SunDigest incubation device provides a fully software controlled and highly reproducible digestion process under standardized conditions.

 

  • Temperatures precisely adjustable between 4 °C and 50 °C
  • On-Tissue digestion process under optimal humidity
  • Preservation of spatial resolution
  • Extremely time saving: High performance digestion at 50 °C
  • Full digestion process control
  • Essential for reproducible results

This instrument is typically used for overnight analysis.
