Loading sample into mass spectrometer in Ronghu Wu lab

A glycoprotein sample culled with the help of the "chemical octopus" developed by Ronghu Wu's lab at Georgia Tech is loaded into a mass spectrometer. The broad array of captured glycoproteins produce identifiable signals, including those from trace glycoprotein species that previously could not be so comprehensively collected and are vital to early cancer detection.
