Title: Laser vaporization/ionization interface for coupling microscale separation techniques with mass spectrometry

Abstract

The present invention provides a laser-induced vaporization and ionization interface for directly coupling microscale separation processes to a mass spectrometer. Vaporization and ionization of the separated analytes are facilitated by the addition of a light-absorbing component to the separation buffer or solvent. 8 figs.
