MasSpec Pen

The MasSpec Pen is a handheld device that was developed by an interdisciplinary team from the fields of chemistry, engineering, and medicine.

The device is able to rapidly and accurately detect cancer cells during surgery giving real-time actionable feedback to the surgeon within ten seconds. To do this, the device tip touches a tissue sample, where diagnostic molecules are analyzed using a mass spectrometer. These molecules serve as a fingerprint to distinguish cancerous from normal tissue.
