NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Nine German universities have won a total of €5.8 million ($8.2 million) from the government to buy imaging mass spectrometers for a range of life sciences research applications.

A portion of the funding will go toward the purchase of a new MALDI TOF-TOF MS-MS machine from upstart mass spec firm Virgin Instruments, a company founded by Marvin Vestal, the former president of mass spectrometry platform R&D at Applied Biosystems and developer of the first commercial MALDI-TOF mass spec.
