MARTE is a DGA Reference Group (E43_20R) within which researchers from the University of Zaragoza and the Miguel Servet University Hospital collaborate. Our group belongs to the Aragon Institute of Engineering Research (i3a)

The group develops new analytical methodology that allows direct elemental or isotopic analysis of solid samples and complex matrices, developing applications in the areas of clinical research (minimally invasive analysis) and in the characterization of nanoparticles.

The techniques that are mainly used are high resolution atomic/molecular absorption with continuous source (HR CS GF AAS or MAS), inductively coupled plasma with detection by mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and laser ablation (LA/LIBS).
