Dr. Rudolf Schneider‘s and Nahla Abdel Shafi‘s laboratory investigations rely on a proven test system using antibodies, i.e. immunoassays.

The advantage of immunoassays is that you need much less equipment than in the previous, elaborate methods.
Less equipment also means that one can take swift action and carry out measurements on site, especially in the case of an emergency. For this, the technology must be light and easy to transport.
Dr. Rudolf Schneider’s and Nahla Abdelshafi’s work aims to develop measurement stations close to each other to ensure comprehensive tests.
Dr. Rudolf Schneider is supervising ten Ph.D. students who are researching into environmental analytics here in Adlershof.
