Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer is a fundamental tool for the identification and analysis of peptides and proteins. MALDI-TOF MS is used to identify proteins by matching a list of experimental peptide masses with the calculated list of all peptide masses of each entry in a database. The sequencing capability of MALDI-TOF/TOF makes protein identifications more specific than those obtained by simple peptide-mass mapping.

The Mass Spectrometry Facility in IMB now offers service for IMB members on sample spotting onto target and peptide or protein analysis. The facility also provides computer termini for peptide mass fingerprinting (PMF) and/or MS/MS ions searching against database.
