New instrument releases at this week's meeting reflected proteomics' increased emphasis on throughput and the continuing spread of ion mobility technology.

Major releases were relatively sparse at ASMS as many vendors focused instead on the development of applications and workflows for their existing platforms.

While most firms launched new mass spec systems, the larger focus was on developing and implementing the larger workflows surrounding these instruments.

The conference was relatively light on new mass spec launches, with many vendors focusing instead on more targeted applications of existing technology.

The approach brings together the spatial resolution of optical microscope and the rich molecular information generated by imaging mass spectrometry.
