Fabrice MONTEAU was born on January 21, 1963 in Limoges, France. He studied Physical & Analytical Chemistry at Limoges University. In 1987, he started his career by developing mass spectrometry methodologies in a French departmental laboratory. In 1990, he joined the team of Professor F. André at the National Veterinary School of Nantes as an engineer.
Since 1990, he has been responsible for the maintenance and use of all analytical instruments within LABERCA. He had the opportunity to work on a wide range of mass spectrometers, which contributed to his strong experience in this field and that of sample preparation techniques dedicated to residues and contaminants. Moreover, between 1995 and 2001, he was in charge of metrology, network and data processing computers. During that same period, he was appointed Head of the Growth Promoters Unit of the French Reference Laboratory until February 2003. His role consisted in developing, helping and controlling a network of laboratories involved in the French control of growth promoters in meat production and communicating with LABERCA’s customers.
In November 2000, he was appointed research engineer. Recently, he has been in charge of a new activity in LABERCA concerning development and research on Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in food to study their impact on health safety. He is involved in giving hands-on sessions for students in the Department of Biology and Pharmacology of the National Veterinary School, and more generally he gives training courses on mass spectrometry techniques.
