Say hello to the newest addition to the Ley Lab: ScimaX!

This week saw the arrival of our newest addition: a scimaX mass spectrometer! After years of planning (and a pandemic), installation was completed this week by the experts at Bruker. The first of its kind in Germany, scimaX is a ultrahigh-resolution magnetic resonance mass spectrometer that promises to be a game-changer for imaging and metabolomics. As preparations are underway for the maiden voyage, the excitement here is palpable as we brainstorm new ways to take microbiome research to the maX!
