Florian Meier
Group Leader Research

Florian Meier holds a PhD in Analytical Chemistry earned from University of Ulm, Germany in 2013 and joined Postnova Analytics in 2014 as Group Leader Research.

In this position, he gained vast experience in the application of various Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) techniques and related detection systems such as for example Multi-Angle Light Scattering, Dynamic Light Scattering or Inductively-Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry.

As a passionate researcher in an industrial environment, his research focuses on the characterization of samples in the nano- and micrometer size range (e.g. engineered nanomaterials, micro- and nanoplastics, environmental colloids, proteins, polymers, viruses, nano-enabled pharmaceuticals and many more), thereby exploiting and continuously pushing the limits of multi-detector FFF. In this respect, he was and is involved in several collaborative national and international research projects

Being a designated member of the “Arbeitsausschuss Nanotechnologien” of the German Institute for Standardization (DIN), he enjoys bringing in his FFF-expertise as an appointed expert for the ISO/TC 229 “Nanotechnologies”.
