Effects of Sample Fixation on Specimen Identification in Biodiversity Assemblies Based on Proteomic Data (MALDI-TOF)

Recently, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry has been used to reliably identify taxonomically difficult harpacticoid copepods from sediment samples. In agreement with former studies, a negative impact of short storage periods was stated. Other studies reported inferior mass spectra quality from samples fix...
