Within the AXIOM platform of Toxalim, Justine Ferey is working on the development of mass spectrometry (MSI) imaging techniques

As part of the CPER 2014-2020, the AXIOM platform acquired a state-of-the-art mass spectrometer, the timsTOF fleX, a true "chemical microscope" which allows the precise spatial localization of a molecular species and offers new opportunities for the exploration of the metabolome through the development of mass spectrometry (MSI) imaging.
Research engineer since October 1, 2020, Justine Ferey's mission is to develop the use of MSI techniques on the AXIOM platform.
More specifically, its missions consist of:

  •     develop the MSI methodology on the AXIOM platform and set up the imaging workflow (sample preparation, data analysis and reprocessing).
  •     raise awareness of the scientific community - initially local - on the possibility of performing MSI analyzes on the platform. This communication mainly involves presentations of the methodology and equipment, as well as discussions with researchers on the relevance and feasibility of this type of analysis for their research projects.
