Meet The SA Entrepreneurs Who Created New Covid-19 Testing Kits

Meet Daniel Ndima and Dineo Lioma - two local entrepreneurs who have come up with a new way to test for the coronavirus.

According to Tech Financials, the pair are Allan Gray Orbis Foundation Fellows and heads of CapeBio, a biotechnology company based in Centurion, Gauteng.

Testing is important in the fight against the coronavirus and Ndima and Lioma stepped up to create a new, more effective way to test South Africans.

They developed the qPCR kit - which has been dubbed a "breakthrough" in testing for Covid-19. The tests take only 65 minutes to determine whether or not a person has been infected with Covid-19.

Their product will not only help speed up the testing process, but it will also reduce South Africa's reliance on foreign imports.

Ndima said:
“One of our major challenges is our reliance on imported tests. Most countries are currently experiencing issues with supply and demand, which their respective governments are controlling with newly introduced trade regulations. This has caused delays in the delivery of imported testing kits and protective gear, and may impact on the delivery of vaccines once they have passed clinical trials.”
