Another example is the MALDI-TOF used in Microbiology.

Essentially you put a touch of a bacterial colony onto a target plate, add some matrix and put it on. It gives you an ID to species level. An example is telling you that an organism is Staphylococcus aureus. It can do something like ~80 samples samples on one target plate so is great for NHS use where mass processing is very handy!
