At Go:IMS we always welcome talks regarding new collaborations as well as suggested research areas where our expertise and knowledge might provide new insights. If you are interested in collaborating with us, please feel free to contact us by sending us an e-mail.

In general, our collaborations follows this process:
1. Submission of Interest Request Form: An academic or industry researches find Go:IMS interesting and would like to investigate collaboration possibilities. This is made by e-mail to one of the key Go:IMS members responsible.
2. Collaborations Committee decision: After an initial contact, the Go:IMS groups will review the case at the internal Collaborations Committee regular meetings, with regards to; capabilities and availability of principal investigators and key resources, the appro-priateness of Imaging MS to solve the proposed problem, funding sources, and other aspects relevant to perform a good collaboration. If the interest is mutual, we will elab-orate collaboration suggestions.
3. Project planing and Outcome Agreement: You and the Go:IMS group will draft a research project plan as well as an Outcome Agreement, in which key activities, cost & time estimates, division of labor & responsibilities, possible publication citations, and other expectations are agreed upon prior to executing collaboration project. In general, the Go:IMS group will become co-authors of the eventual publication.
4. Sample preparation and feasibility study: Unless the collaboration project consists of very standard procedures, the project will start with sample preparations and a feasibility study. Most often, simple sample preparations (paraffin or frozen sections) are enough, but Go:IMS will provide guidance and recommendations depending on project goal.
5. Project execution: The collaboration project is executed and the outcome (including publications) are shared in accordance to Outcome Agreement.

GO:IMS welcome both academic and industry research collaborations. If you request contract services, this can be made if it involves standardized procedures. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Alternatively Go:IMS can provide contract analysis using our different expertise and instrumentation.

Chalmers staff and students can gain access through the the Chemical Imaging Infrastructure

MS-imaging trade-offs and limitations
Depending on the experimental need, the MS-imaging settings will have to be specified accordingly. There are several trade-offs to be aware of. E.g. If a project team wants an image at high spatial resolution, it will take longer time and require larger hard drives for data storage.
