  • Title: Novel Mass Spectrometry Technology Development for Biomarker Discovery and Disease Diagnosis
  • Abstract: Recently, we have developed a few novel mass spectrometry technologies which can be used for detecting bioparticles such as antibodies, cells and virus. We expand the mass range by 10 orders of magnitude to reach to 1017 Daltons. These technologies include (1) Cell mass spectrometry (2) Biomolecular ion accelerator, (3) portable biological mass spectrometer and (4) Single large biomolecular ion detector. Cell mass spectrometer extends the mass region to be covered from 1 megadalton to 1016 Da. Biomolecular ion accelerator increases the singly charged molecular ion energy to mega volts region. This is the first biomolecular ion accelerator in the world. Secondary ion conversion was used to achieve single large bio-molecular ion detection. A single ion with mass-to-charge ratio (M/Z) higher than 10,000,000 was successfully detected. With our novel mass spectrometry technologies, we developed new platforms for disease biomarker discovery. They include (1) discovery of lung cancer biomarkers from exhaled air (2) glycoproteomic platform for discovery of pancreatic cancer biomarkers (3) discovery of biomarkers for pancreatic and gastric cancer. More details on the approach and therapeutic applications will be presented in the meeting.
