PD Dr. Michael Seidel





PD Dr. Seidel studied biotechnology at the University of Stuttgart. He obtained his doctorate at the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry (Prof. G. Gauglitz), University of Tuebingen in 2003. Following a period as a R & D project leader at Miltenyi Biotec GmbH, he moved 2005 to the Chair of Analytical Chemistry at Technical University of Munich as a group leader. In 2014 he received his habilitation in Analytical Chemistry and was appointed as lecturer at TUM (German “PD”). Currently, he is heading the group of Bioanalytics and Microanalytical Systems at the Chair of Analytical Chemistry and Water Chemistry at TUM.


His research interests are within bioanalytical methods for environmental and food analytical chemistry. His expertise is in rapid detection methods, chemiluminescence microarrays, surface chemistry, selective concentration methods for bioanalytics, detection of pathogens, toxins, and micropollutants, molecular biological methods, and immunoassays.
