1 Device to apply a coating on tissue samples for MALDI imaging Holly Liske Laura Piechura Kellen Sheedy Jenna Spaeth Amy Harms, PhD UW Biotechnology Center Brenda Ogle, PhD Department of Biomedical Engineering

2 Presentation Overview Background of MALDI imaging Project motivation Problem statement Design criteria Design matrices Final design Budget evaluation Future work

3 MALDI-MSI

4 Data Acquisition from MALDI-MSI Alanine, neuropeptide in crab brain m/z = Valine, m/z = Alanine Valine Greg Barrett-Wilt, PhD., UW Biotechnology Center

5 Benefits of MALDI-MSI Analysis of entire sample in one reading Previous knowledge of molecular composition is not necessary Allows for investigation of disease formation, progression, and treatment

6 Matrix Application Matrix application is vital for quality image resolution Must contact sample as fine, liquid mist Current procedure involves manual application with airbrush 100µm raster step Greg Barrett-Wilt, PhD., UW Biotechnology Center

7 Problem Statement Sample preparation methods MALDI-MSI are difficult to control Requires accuracy and precision A device to apply a fine, uniform coating of light- absorbing compounds

8 Project Motivation Objective 1: Simplify matrix application, facilitate MALDI Objective 2: Centralize a reliable tool at UW Biotechnology Center Implications for campus-wide, even global, research

9 Design Criteria Spray an even coating of matrix over an 81cm x 123 cm tissue sample Adjustable spray aperture, air pressure and positioning of the plate and sprayer Enclosed in a casing and operable within a fume hood

10 Design Matrix Adjustment Several variables controlled by many independent components Sprayer Method of application Enclosure Orientation Created a component matrix to decide final design

11 Component Matrix VerticalHorizontal Orientation Detached covering Integrated covering Fume hood Enclosure Stationary sprayer, Movable plate Movable sprayer, Stationary plate Method of Application Produce irrigation system Pneumatic sprayer Nebulizer Nozzle- valve with pressure vessel Automatic Spray Gun Sprayer IdeasFeature

12 Criteria for ranking Reliability Adjustability User interaction Cost Maintenance Ease of manufacture Ranking System (1-5), highest = best
