Hakan Berk Aydin is a candidate for a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Izmir Institute of Technology.


He is currently conducting research in BioSens & BioApps research group’s laboratory to assay development in nucleic acid tests, fabrication of paper-based point of care tools, specific bioApp design, polymer synthesis, and surface chemistry.


He has created an Android App called “BioRGB”. BioRGB uses for colorimetric detection, and it has been utilized screening of HBV and Dengue Fever. Our algorithm and methodology speed the determination of infectious disease at off-field conditions.


Aydin has received the 3rd prize in The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK)’s 2242-Software Contest with the application “BioRGB”.


BioRGB has had a huge impact on national news agencies, with most national TV news and newspapers mentioned it.


Aydin has been a member of the Prof. Ashutosh Chilkoti's Chilkoti Lab for 6 months (Feb ’18 – Aug ’18) as a Visiting Research Scholar at Duke University.


He mostly focused on Point of Care Tests and mastering many techniques, including SI-ATRP (Surface-Initiated Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization) and immunoassay fabrication, to name a few.
