Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry has proven useful in life sciences to study biological samples, in particular to detect and localize uranium at very low concentration levels within cells.
Using the IMS 7f-GEO, mapping of major and trace species can be obtained at cell level with a lateral resolution reaching ~0.5 µm, allowing to study the mechanisms of uranium toxicity in cell compartments.
