Organic matrices are the state-of-the-art ionization mediators in Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry (LDI-MS). Despite improvements in understanding matrix chemistry, interfering matrix-related signals complicate the analysis. Surface-assisted LDI techniques like desorption/ionization on silicon (DIOS) or nanostructure initiator mass spectrometry (NIMS) provide...
