About us

Since 2003, the working group has been chaired by Prof. Dr Martin Kreyenschmidt together with Prof. Dr Klaus Schlitter (since 2004). With M. Sc. Dipl.Ing. Stephanie Hanning and M. Sc. Dipl.Ing. Karin Schulte, two scientific staff members are employed who already worked in the IA laboratory under the founder Prof. Janßen. Our laboratories are traditionally designed for a comprehensive range of applications. We have many years of know-how in the field of elemental analysis, molecular spectroscopy, chromatography, mass spectrometry and plastics analysis.

Our devices are used for the education of students as well as for research and development. Our motto is: "find out what's inside!"

Laboratory equipment

In addition to classical spectroscopic equipment such as photometers and infrared spectrometers, our equipment pool primarily includes high-end spectrometers. We cover the full family of X-ray fluorescence and atomic spectrometers with the systems for inductively coupled plasma analysis (ICP-OES + ICP-MS), as well as the atomic absorption spectrometers (flame and graphite tube). We also work with two laser ablation systems with 193 and 213 nm, respectively, which are coupled to the ICP devices.

The instrumental methods of chromatography are also almost completely represented here. In gas chromatography (GC) we cover mass selective detectors (MS) as well as flame ionisation (FID) and thermal conductivity detectors (WLD). In addition, we have a wide variety of output methods available, such as cold feed, headspace, thermodesorption and pyrolysis. For high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) we have UVVis, diode array, fluorescence, refractive index as well as mass spectrometers as detectors.
