Nanostructure-initiator mass spectrometry (NIMS) is a highly sensitive, matrix-free technique that is well suited for biofluid analysis and imaging of biological tissues. Here we provide a new technical variation of NIMS to analyze carbohydrates and steroids, molecules that are challenging to detect with traditional mass spectrometric approaches. Analysis of carbohydrates and steroids was accomplished by spray depositing NaCl or AgNO 3 on the NIMS porous silicon surface to provide a uniform

Laser desorption/ionization of the ion-coated NIMS surface allowed for Na + cationization of carbohydrates and Ag + cationization of steroids. The reliability of the approach is quantitatively demonstrated with a calibration curve over the physiological range of glucose and cholesterol concentrations in human serum (1-200 µM). Additionally, we illustrate the sensitivity of the method by showing its ability to detect carbohydrates and steroids down to the 800-amol and 100-fmol levels, respectively. The technique developed is well suited for tissue imaging of biologically significant metabolites such as sucrose and cholesterol. To highlight its applicability, we used cation-enhanced NIMS to image the distribution of sucrose in a Gerbera jamesonii flower stem and the distribution of cholesterol in a mouse brain. The flower stem and brain sections were placed directly on the ion-coated NIMS surface without further preparation and analyzed directly. The overall results reported underscore the potential of NIMS to analyze and image chemically diverse compounds that have been traditionally challenging to observe with mass spectrometry-based techniques. Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is emerging as a powerful technique to probe the distribution of molecules within biological systems. 1-3 The molecular specificity of MSI offers significant advantages over traditional imaging techniques such as fluorescence microscopy, electron microscopy, and radiography. MSI has proven important to understanding tumor pathology, 4 biomarkers, 5,6 drug distribution, 7-9 and changes in the chemical organization of tissues under a variety of therapeutic conditions. 10-12 The applicability of MSI depends largely upon several parameters including sample preparation, method of ionization, sensitivity, resolution, and speed of the analysis. Various MSI strategies have been employed including matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI), 1,13,14 atmospheric pressure-MALDI (AP-MALDI), 15,16 time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS), 2,17,18 desorption electrospray ionization (DESI), 8, 19 and laser ablation
