Jan Engels

// born 1989, studied bio engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Aachen

// After acquiring his Bachelor's degree, Prof. Reinhard Renneberg suggested him for the fast-track programme of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) for a directly subsequent PhD in chemistry. He was accepted

// His interest is in nano particles for evidencing various reagents and their direct ­application

// At the moment, his research is ­targeted at FDA nano crystals for various ­immune assays

// Furthermore, his scientific ­interest has led to his activity in founding a start-up company spun off from the research group of Prof. Renneberg

Nano Crystals for mega Fluorescence Amplification

SuperNova in the test tube - von Prof Dr Reinhard Renneberg, Jan Engels, Dr Hans-Georg Eisenwiener

We tell the exciting story of how mega ­fluorescence amplification was ­invented. ­
First, there was the question: How can ­previous biochemical evidence reactions ­be ­amplified million-fold to detect the bio­­chemical “needles in a haystack” (substances ­at very low concentrations) in a multicomponent system like a blood sample?
