Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectra of Phlebotomus perniciosus. (a) Fresh specimen from colony. (b) Field specimen stored in 70 % EtOH, −20 °C for 3 years. (c) Field specimen stored in N2 then −80 °C since 1991. (d) Field specimen stored in N2 then −80 °C, since 1989. Note different scale of magnification (10 ×) for the higher mass range (10–20 kDa)
