Haopeng Xiao loads mass spectrometer in Wu lab

Graduate research assistant Haopeng Xiao loads a glycoprotein sample, which was culled with the "chemical octopus" co-developed in Ronghu Wu's lab at Georgia Tech, 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.
