Videos explaining the PLANTMETALS COST Action to the general public, suitable for introducing the Action to potential new members and stakeholders. Two versions are available by download from the following links:
1) A 3min "talking head" video that explains in an easy way why trace metals are both, required and toxic, for plants and humans. It t is aimed at YouTube and social media. It is currently available at our YouTube channel and you can download the original full-resolution mp4 file HERE for your own re-distribution (allowed freely WITHOUT editing!)
2) 7min video with shots from our labs, from synchrotrons and outside locations, explaining the importance, methods and output of our research. It is currently available at our YouTube channel and you can download the original full-resolution mp4 file HERE for your own re-distribution (allowed freely WITHOUT editing!)

Advice to better direct researchers to the proper metallomics facilities and methods

The following table shows people within this Action whom you may contact for getting advice on access to metallomics facilities within our network or to which members of our network have close contact.

Person, with link to personal or COST website for contact details
Description of the facility or methods on which this person can give advice
Hendrik Küpper
- X-ray spectroscopy: In-house µXRF (2D), µXRF and µXAS tomography and bulk XAS at European synchrotron faclilities (DESY, Diamond, ESRF)

Matthias Wiggenhauser
Contact for metal isotope applications including tracer techniques for radioisotopes (e.g., 109Cd, 65Zn) and enriched stable isotopes (e.g., 111Cd, 67Zn) to trace metal sources in plants and soil-fertilizer-plant systems using multicollector ICP-MS.
