  • Govindasamy, K; Potgieter, S; Land, K; Muzenda, E (2014-11)
    Paper based sensors have found application in the clinical, environmental, and veterinary monitoring sectors. Popular examples of paper sensors include lateral flow tests (LFTs) and paper based microfluidic devices. The ...
  • Land, K; Mbanjwa, M; Hugo, S; Chen, J; Govindasamy, K (CSIR, 2010-09-01)
    Microfluidics is an important emerging research platform in South Africa. It deals with the control and manipulation of very small quantities of fluids (typically microlitre and smaller) inside micro-channels. Microfluidic-based ...
  • Govindasamy, K; Potgieter, S; Land, K; Muzenda, E (International Association Of Engineers, 2012-07)
    This paper describes an inexpensive method of fabricating paper based microfluidic devices, a new point of care technology. The method uses a solid ink printer, chromatography paper and a heating source. The printer deposits ...
  • Land, K; Mbanjwa, MB; Govindasamy, K; Korvink, JG (American Institute of Physics, 2011-09)
    A method to easily manufacture and assemble a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based microfluidic device is described. The method uses low cost materials and reusable laser cut polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) parts. In addition, ...
  • Govindasamy, K; Potgieter, S; Kumar, S; Land, K; Muzenda, E (2012-09)
    Microfluidics has found widespread application in the fields of molecular biology, DNA analysis and most recently, point of care diagnostics. We present a paper based microfluidic device for rapid, in-the-field detection ...
