This project is focused on imaging of elements/metals/proteins in biological tissues by a unique method - laser ablation with inductively coupled plasma and mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) after anticancer drug treatment.
In the last decades increased interest in imaging of these elements/metals/proteins distribution, mainly in pharmaceutical, biomedicine research, or life science with application to specific problem/disease. The effectiveness of treatment concerning e.g. targeted release will be investigated by the determination and imaging of the amount of metals from metal-based drugs and proteins in tumor tissues.
