Marcus von der Au, born in 1990, graduated from the University of Hamburg in 2016 in chemistry with a master's thesis in the department Marine Bioanalytical Chemistry of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht. Since 2016, he has been working towards his doctoral degree in inorganic analytics under the supervision of Dr. Meermann at the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG) and is currently a visiting scientist at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin, Germany.
His work focuses on the analysis of elemental content in single organisms using single-cell-ICP-TOF-MS and ETV-ICP-MS as well as of non-metals by means of HR-CS GF AAS and ICP-MS/MS.
- Elemental content determination using microwave-assisted digestion and subsequent measurement by means of ICP-OES/MS
Method development in this field
- Single-cell-ICP-TOF-MS (single-cell inductively coupled plasma time-of-flight mass spectrometry)
- ETV-ICP-MS (electrothermal vaporization inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry)
- HR-CS GF AAS (high-resolution continuum source graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry)
