Department of Technical Physics, Faculty of Science, Forestry and Technology


Microplastic research is focused on the following topics:

  • Quantitative and qualitative measurements of microplastics from environmental and food samples
    • Development of analytical methods
    • Microplastic load to aquatic environments via storm waters
  • Migration of microplastics from plastic food packages
  • Health effects of microplastics, especially for human gut microbiota

We have versatile and high-quality analytical instruments: imaging infrared microscope (Agilent Cary 670/620), Raman microscope (Thermo DXR2xi) and infrared spectrometer (Thermo Nicolet iS50). Moreover, we have access to light microscopy, electron microscopy and chemical analysis, such as chromatography mass spectrometry.

We have gained experience about microplastic analyses since 2016, and the method development is still active. Our aim is to validate methods further, in other words measure, what we can measure.
