This site aims to eventually provide a resource covering various applications of laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry (LDI MS). The site is maintained by members of the Venkat Panchagnula group at CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory, Pune India. Currently, this site also serves as our group home page. 

Our research interests are in the broad areas of bioanalysis, metabolomics, pesticide residue and food contaminant analysis, and surface chemistry.

We are also quite enthusiastic in taking our experiences from the lab into the market for societal benefit. Barefeet Analytics is a spin off that was started by the Panchagnula group alumni to address the analytical needs in pesticide and food contaminant analysis.
