In this paper we describe a combination of the mass spectrometric techniques MALDI-TOF/TOF and MALDI-FTMS to identify proteins in complex samples using prespotted MALDI target plates. By this procedure accurate FTMS mass measurements and TOF/TOF data are obtained from the same spot. We have found that this combination of techniques leads to more reliable identification of peptides.
