The 3D Orbi-SIMS label free metabolic imager.
Ummm...hey...I'm just going to leave this new Nature Methods paper here.
Yeah -- this is an imaging TOF device connected for a Q Exactive. The authors go through in somewhat painstaking detail what you'd have to do if you wanted to build your own.
And...well...then they go through some real brain tissue and TRACK SPECIFIC NEUROTRANSMITTER concentrations in 3 dimensions through the tissue -- and then track some molecules in a SINGLE HUMAN CELL.
I don't think I could build one even with these instructions, but it's a seriously cool paper.
