Institut für Biophysik Institut für Biophysik

The MOLECULAR BIOSENSING GROUP of Assoc. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Andreas Ebner is interested to explore and investigate molecular recognition processes, which play a pivotal role in biology, physiology and medicine. For this three different key techniques are used: Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), Quartz Crystal Microbalance (QCM), and Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR)
