10 Laboratory Set-Up

11 Voyager Sample Plates Hydrophobic surface SURFACE TENSION

12 2,4,6-trihydroxy acetophenone (THAP) -cyano-4-hydroxycinnamic acid 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,5-DHB) Dithranol trans-3-indoleacrylic acid Sinapinic acid (3,5-Dimethoxy- 4-hydroxy cinnamic acid) 2-(4-hydroxyphenylazo)- benzoic acid (HABA) 3-hydroxypicolinic acid (3-HPA) Peptide (0.1-10 pmol/ l) Protein (0.1-10 pmol/ l) Oligonucleotide (10-100 pmol/ l) Polymer (10 -4 M) MALDI-TOF Matrices

13 Matrix Preparation and Crystals -cyano Sinapinic acid DHB 5 mg/ml in 50% ACN 0,1% TFA 10 g/L in 30-50% ACN with 0.1% TFA Super-DHB 10 mg/ml in water or 50% ACN A = 10 mg/ml DHB in 20% ACN B = 10 mg/ml 5- methoxysalicylic acid in 50% ACN Combine A:B (9:1)

14 Thin Layer (Acetone) First matrix in acetone (dry) Then sample (dry) On-plate washing possible after drying Thin Layer (Nitrocellulose) NC and matrix solution (dry) Then sample (dry) TFA on top, blow off with an air supply; repeat Dried Droplet First sample Immediately after, matrix in solvent Sandwich Method First matrix Then sample And matrix again (air dry)

15 Isotopic Resolution

16 Resolution - 1 What benefit is high resolution Improved identification of peptides Indication of potential modification Greater degree of mass accuracy Resolution is defined as : Mass / (peak width at half peak height)

17 Resolution - 2 R=M/ M, where M is the mass to of peak and M is the peak width at half maximum. S= peak separation. NOT RESOLVED S= M FULLY RESOLVED M S=2 M

18 Consequence of High Resolution The Grey lines indicate the isotopic distribution of the peptide. The Red line indicates the centroid mass data for each. Resolution 1000 = 1297.000 (Average Mass) Resolution 3000 = 1296.680 (Monoisotopic Mass) RESULT = Better Mass Accuracy

19 High Resolution - Too much data? Monoisotopic resolution of Insulin C 12 : 5730.61 C 13 2 x C 13 In compounds with more than 100 carbon atoms the height of the 13 C isotope peak exceeds the height of the 12 C peak

23 Principle of Delayed Extraction When ions are accelerated they exhibit a broad energy spread. When forming ions in a weak electric field then applying a high voltage pulse after a time delay, this energy spread can be minimized. A potential gradient is formed in the ionization region by the voltages applied to the sample plate and the variable voltage grid. Ref: W.C.Wiley and I.H.McLaren Rev.Sci.Instrum 1953,26,1150-1157

25 The Reflector

26 Benefits of Using a Reflector Provides higher performance - resolution and mass accuracy ­ Increases separation due to longer flight time ­ Filters out neutral molecules ­ Corrects time dispersion due to initial kinetic energy distribution Capability for PSD experiment

28 What is the reflector? The reflector is an electrical mirror with a voltage potential applied across the sides. The ions are sequentially slowed down through the reflector

29 Velocity Focusing in Reflector Mode Sample plate Ground grid Variable-voltage grid slow fast slow Ions must line up at the beginning of the flight tube Refocusing region - some move farther into reflector, than others Defocusing region This initial focus is refocused by the reflector which can be fine tuned for second order velocity focusing. Slow Fast


31 Accuracy, Precision & Resolution a. Precision. This is a measure of repeatability, i.e. the degree of agreement between individual measurements of a set of measurements, all of the same quantity. b. Accuracy. This is a measure of reliability, and is the difference between the True Value of a measured quantity and the Most Probable Value which has been derived from a series of measures. The True Value is, of course, never known. c. Resolution. This is the smallest interval measurable by an instrument CALIBRATION THEORY Definitions

32 CALIBRATION THEORY None of the darts are close to the true value (bulls eye) : the measurements are not accurate. Also, since the darts are not very close to each other, the set of measurements is not precise either. The measurements are all close to the true value, so they are accurate. Also, the measurements are all close to each other, so they are precise Since all of the measurements are close together, they are precise, but since they are not close to the true value, they are not accurate

33 Accuracy : in ppm (or Da, or %) 100 ppm = 0,01% 10 ppm = 0,001% 1 ppm = 0,0001% Resolution : in FWHM (Full Width at Half Maximum) - No unit = M/ M CALIBRATION THEORY Definitions
