7th Workshop on
Field-Flow Fractionation –
Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS)
Nanoparticles in life science
- single particle analysis and imag-ing techniques -
Analytical tools in life sciences
Engineered nanomaterials are subject of intense research since several years - nanoanalytical tools are mainly based on fractionation techniques such as FFF, HDC and CE coupled on-line with ICP-MS. Nowadays imaging techniques gain importance in life-science, e.g. for the application of nanomaterials or the analysis of single-cells.
Thus, the 7th Workshop on Field Flow Fractionation and Mass Spectrometry (FFF-MS) will focus on the applicability of nanoanalytical tools in life-sciences and highlight the narrow ridge between nanomaterial analysis and life-science applications. A special focus will be placed on the emerging technique of particle imaging and single particle/cell ICP-MS either as stand-alone technique or coupled on-line with separation/fractionation systems.
Scope of the Workshop
The Workhsop is a cooperation between the Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ Leipzig, Department Analytic, Germany), the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG, Department G2 - Aquatic Chemistry, Koblenz, Germany) and the University of Koblenz/Landau (Department of Chemistry, Campus Koblenz, Germany), and the University of Vienna (Department of Environmental Geosciences, Vienna, Austria). The Workshop is completely free of charge.
Part I (first day) will start with two survey lectures given by experts in the field. Scientific presentations will complete the morning and afternoon session. Speakers will receive a partial travel subsidy.
Part II (second day) of the workshop will be organized in the format of a tutorial on a field relevant topic offering various opportunities for discussion.
