Institute for Analytical Chemistry, Chemo- and Biosensors
Our institute offers research covering various areas of analytical and bioanalytical chemistry as well as bio- and chemosensor development. In the group of Prof. Bäumner biosensors and microTotal Analysis Systems are developed for the detection of pathogens and toxins often times taking advantage of miniaturized, microfluidic systems. Prof. Matysik focuses on instrumental development with mass spectrometry, electrochemistry and electromigrative methods. Prof. Wegener studies and develops whole-cell biosensors and cell-based bioanalysis. PD Dr. Duerkop develops optical sensors for rapid detection of biogenic amines. Dr. Hirsch offers development and characterization of nanoparticles and 2D nanomaterials for bioanalysis. Dr. Gorris is interested in bioanalysis on the micro- and nanometer scale with femtoliter array and nanoparticle studies.
