Chemical imaging has emerged as an important field of research in recent years, and the respective methods are used for the spatially resolved analysis of the elemental and molecular composition of biological or pharmaceutical samples. Here, three different techniques for elemental and molecular imaging including µXRF, LA-ICP-MS and LA-APCI-MS are presented with their major principles and applications.
