We are sorry to inform you, that the workshop has to be postponed. 

More information will follow shortly.

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 application of nanomaterials in life science and environmental technology and the applicability of nanoanalytical tools in these fields.

A special focus will be placed on the complementary analysis of nanomaterials in life science application as well as during their synthesis. Special topics are

  • analysis of organic cappings and organic nanomaterials
  • Analysis of interactions between nanomaterial and biological tissue
  • Synthesis and application of nanomaterials in life science and environmental technology.

Scope of the Workshop

Part I (first day) will start with two survey lectures given by experts:

  • Dr. Sophie Marie Briffa from University of Birmingham, UK
  • Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Tremel from Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany

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 given by experts:

  • Prof. Dr. Karsten Mäder
  • Dr. Stijn Van Malderen

Prof. Dr. Karsten Mäder will focus on the topic of drug carrier characterization and their biological fate. Dr. Stijn Van Malderen will give a tutorial on LA-ICP-MS analysis and imaging.
