Abstract

The effect of addition of two surfactants to whole cell bacterial protein sample analysis was studied using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI). E.coli bacteria cells grown on regular agar surfaces were utilized. MALDI spectra of E.coli without any surfactant and with n-octyl-β-D- galkactopyranoside was represented. An improvement in the spectral quality over a wide molecular mass range and an enhancement of many mass peaks was observed.
