MALDISTAR Workshop - Ourcon VII

The announced MALDISTAR workshop has successfully taken place as part of the Ourcon VII conference, held in Saint-Malo, France. The aims of the workshop were to bring together experts in the field and discuss the topics of standardization and reproducibility in MALDI MSI as well as to raise awareness on the need to establish reliable quality checks.

We have introduced the MALDISTAR project and presented its goals and early results. We have set up an interactive polling system to hear from the MSI-Society and get participants' opinions about central topics and challenges facing MALDI MSI. The results of that interactive poll are published below.

We would like to thank all participants, speakers and advisory board members for their input as well as all the side-discussions held afterwards.
