Wenqiu Liu, PhD

Wenqiu trained as a synthetic organic chemist, and has a Ph.D. and a M.S. in Organic Chemistry from Clarkson University, Potsdam, NY. Her main research interests are in the areas of conjugation chemistry, process chemistry, biosensors and nanotechnology. Currently her research focuses on design and synthesis of nanoparticles with functionality for applications in immunology and molecular biology areas; development of conjugation protocols to label proteins and nucleic acids; as well as development of different detection techniques. She has involved in the development and release of our new products such as Ni-NTA-Nanogold, FluoroNanogold and GoldEnhance. She synthesized gold particle attached nucleotides and other small organic precursors. She is currently investigating a new detection technique involving enzyme-catalyzed metal deposition. By involving and managing our production, Wenqiu is familiar with our processes, products and quality management system. It is her goal to continue to provide quality products and bring new products to market.
