In 1907 he was appointed director of the Berlin Munincipal Testing Office. Much of Proskauer's research dealt with disinfections and water hygiene issues. With physician Daniel Wilhelm Otto Voges, he developed the "Voges-Proskauer test", a chemical reaction used in testing for the production of acetoin by various bacteria. With Richard Pfeiffer, he edited the "Encyklopädie der Hygiene" (2 volumes, 1902–05). (en)
