About Plas­mi­on

As an agi­le sca­le­up in the dy­na­mic growth mar­ket for sen­sor tech­no­lo­gy, we ac­com­pa­ny cor­po­ra­te cus­to­mers from the la­bo­ra­to­ry and in­dus­tri­al mar­ket world­wi­de. Our pa­ten­ted and in­no­va­ti­ve tech­no­lo­gy is ba­sed on one of the most powerful che­mi­cal ana­ly­sis me­thods and en­ables the ana­ly­sis of al­most any odor – wi­thin se­conds (e.g., real-time me­a­su­re­ment of more than 300 aro­ma com­pounds in cof­fee).

With a ta­len­ted team, we of­fer cus­to­mi­zed sta­te-of-the-art hard­ware and soft­ware so­lu­ti­ons to our in­ter­na­tio­nal cus­to­mers from a wide ran­ge of in­dus­tries.

Dr. Jan-Chris­toph Wolf, CTO

Jan holds a master’s de­gree in che­mis­try from the Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty of Mu­nich. He spe­cia­li­zed in or­ga­nic and ana­ly­ti­cal che­mis­try and took a doc­to­ral de­gree (Ph.D.) at the De­part­ment of Ana­ly­ti­cal Che­mis­try hea­ded by Pro­fes­sor Rein­hard Niess­ner. Du­ring this time he gai­ned ex­ten­si­ve know­ledge in ae­ro­sol che­mis­try, in­stru­ment / me­thod de­ve­lo­p­ment, and the area of​clas­si­cal ana­ly­sis, par­ti­cu­lar­ly in mass spec­tro­me­try. Bes­i­des, he in­de­pendent­ly con­duc­ted com­mis­sio­ned ana­ly­ses for va­rious in­dus­tri­al part­ners. Af­ter gra­dua­ti­on, Jan con­duc­ted a post­doc­to­ral re­se­arch at ETH Zu­rich (Switz­er­land) with Pro­fes­sor Re­na­to Zen­o­bi and be­ca­me a lea­ding ex­pert in the field of new io­niza­ti­on me­thods for mass spec­tro­me­try, so-cal­led „am­bi­ent“ io­niza­ti­on.

Dr. Tho­mas Wolf, CEO

Tho­mas holds a di­plo­ma in busi­ness ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­on from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Augs­burg. He spe­cia­li­zed in fi­nan­ce and in­for­ma­ti­on ma­nage­ment and took a doc­to­ral de­gree (Ph.D) at the De­part­ment of In­for­ma­ti­on Sys­tems and Sus­tainable IT Ma­nage­ment hea­ded by Pro­fes­sor Gil­bert Fri­d­gen at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bay­reuth. Du­ring this time he work­ed for the Fraun­ho­fer FIT con­duc­ting se­ve­ral pro­jects with dif­fe­rent busi­ness part­ners like Me­ta­fi­nanz or Deut­sche Bank. Af­ter gra­dua­ti­on he work­ed se­ve­ral ye­ars for McK­in­sey & Com­pa­ny lea­ding en­ga­ge­ments in va­rious in­dus­tries like ad­van­ced in­dus­tries, au­to­mo­ti­ve & as­sem­bly, or glo­bal en­er­gy and ma­te­ri­als.​

    In 2018, it fi­nal­ly hap­pen­ed: Plasmion’s Go-to-mar­ket ba­cked by VCs and Busi­ness An­gels with sec­tor ex­pe­ri­ence.

    Plas­mi­on has been award­ed with dif­fe­rent pri­zes, among­st others the Ache­ma Grün­der­preis, the most re­now­ned pri­ce of the so­cie­ty for che­mi­cal en­gi­nee­ring and bio­tech­no­lo­gy.

    Af­ter hit­ting the Ger­man mar­ket in 2018 with their SICRIT® ion source and re­spec­ti­ve add-on pro­ducts, Plas­mi­on part­ne­red with se­ve­ral sa­les and ser­vice part­ners to con­quer new count­ries in Eu­ro­pe and Asia.

    Plas­mi­on has also been na­med as one of the Red Her­ring Top 100 Eu­ro­pe, one of Hel­lo Tomorrow’s Deep Tech Pio­neers, and was award­ed with the Fu­ture En­gi­nee­ring Award at Uni­ver­si­ty In­no­va­ti­on Chall­enge by Han­dels­blatt and Goe­the Uni­ver­si­ty.

    Du­ring the glo­bal pan­de­mic, Plas­mi­on con­tin­ued to ex­tend its sa­les and ser­vice net­work with se­ve­ral part­ners all over the world, to in­crease the glo­bal pre­sence and build up re­si­li­ence for the ye­ars to come.

    Bes­i­des, Plas­mi­on has been award­ed with the In­ter­na­tio­nal Food-Tech award in sil­ver by the Ger­man Agri­cul­tu­ral So­cie­ty and na­med fi­na­list at the Wi­ley Ana­ly­ti­cal Sci­ence Award.

    Af­ter be­ing able to suc­cessful­ly es­tab­lish and grow with the busi­ness in Eu­ro­pe and Asia, Plas­mi­on fi­nal­ly hit the United Sta­tes of Ame­ri­ca, the home turf of most of the big mass spec­tro­me­try ven­dors.

    Bes­i­des, Plas­mi­on came up with its Ha­Voc pro­duct line, a sen­so­ry sys­tem ba­sed on mass spec­tro­me­try for in­dus­tri­al real-time mo­ni­to­ring of VOCs. This in­no­va­ti­on right away has been re­ward­ed with rank #4 at the Ana­ly­ti­cal Sci­en­tist In­no­va­ti­on Award 2022.

    In the first half of 2023, Plas­mi­on of­fi­ci­al­ly an­noun­ced a Co-Mar­ke­­ting agree­ment with Agi­lent Tech­no­lo­gies, one of the big­gest MS ven­dors. Bes­i­des, Plas­mi­on com­ple­men­ted its pro­duct port­fo­lio for lab ap­pli­ca­ti­ons with the long-awai­­ted LC-Mo­­du­­le, which en­ables the cou­pling of li­quid chro­ma­to­gra­phy with the SICRIT® gas-pha­­se tech­ni­que.
