Workflow Using eMSTAT Solution
Identifying Degraded Synthetic Polymers
Polystyrene (heated and unheated) polymers were separated into two groups (heated or unheated) by multivariate analysis (PLS-DA) of the MALDI mass spectrum (Score Plot). A Loading Plot can be used to confirm which peaks (marker peaks) affect the differences between the two groups.
Using marker peaks identified by multivariate analysis to create a discriminant model and discriminate (SVM) between heated and unheated polymers in a polystyrene mass spectrum, obtained separately, resulted in correct discrimination of all polymers. By using eMSTAT Solution in combination with MALDI mass spectrometry, which can easily measure samples with large molecular weight, in addition to synthetic polymers, a wide variety of samples, such as protein, fat, or sugar samples, can be easily differentiated.
