Jürgen J. Schmied, PhD


Jürgen Schmied studied Biophysics at the University of Bayreuth and graduated in 2010. During his PhD thesis he worked on DNA origami based fluorescence standards which allow to test the spatial resolution of super-resolution microscopes such as STED or GSDIM. After finishing his thesis he founded a company (GATTAquant GmbH) which commercializes DNA origami based standards for any type of fluorescence microscope but also for TEM and AFM.

  • From 2004–2010: Studies Physics (Biophysics), University Bayreuth, Germany
