Dr. Martina Hedrich

Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM)

Martina Hedrich studied chemistry at Freie Universität Berlin (FUB), where she also received her doctorate in inorganic chemistry in the field of X-ray structure analysis. During her postdoc at the Hahn Meitner Institute in Berlin, she dedicated her work to trace analysis in human tissue samples before moving to the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in 1989. At BAM, she specialized in metal analysis and reference material development/certification, holding management positions in nuclear analysis, gas analysis and metrology in chemistry from 1996 onwards. Since 2010 she is Quality Manager of BAM. She chairs the Certification Committee for Reference Materials, lectures on analytical quality assurance at FUB and is an active member of the European TrainMIC program (Training Metrology in Chemistry) as the leader of the German team.

    On the way to the cyber-physical lab

    Laboratories tend to be central hubs for chemical, biotechnological, pharmaceutical or foodstuff production. They play a key role in research and development, chemical analysis, quality assurance, maintenance and process control. more

    The internet of things in the lab and in process

    It is a fact that much of the time spent on analytical laboratory instrumentation these days goes into system maintenance. Digital transformation could give us more time again for creativity and our actual laboratory work – if we shape it the right way. more

    The fingerprint of the diatom

    In today’s laboratories, elemental analysis methods are used for more than just determining total metal content in various sample matrices. They have become an important tool for life science research in environmental science, medicine and biology. more
