Detection of doxycycline hyclate and oxymetazoline hydrochloride in pharmaceutical preparations via spectrophotometry and microfluidic paper-based analytical device (µPADs)

Abdulsattar, J. O., Hadi, H., Richardson, S., Iles, A., & Pamme, N. (2020). Detection of doxycycline hyclate and oxymetazoline hydrochloride in pharmaceutical preparations via spectrophotometry and microfluidic paper-based analytical device (┬ÁPADs).

Research interests

I'm interested in the development of sensor often focusing on rapid and frequent sensing to better understand chemical concentrations in dynamic environments. In particular this involves developed of paper based sensors that enable frequent measurements where needed, that could be undertaken by citizen scientists.
