The microscope and mobile phone can detect the presence of a targeted DNA sequence, letting doctors know exactly which form of cancer, bacteria or virus they are dealing with. The small, 3D printed...

Uppsala University researchers have helped develop a 3D-printed microscope for mobile phone cameras, which enables cheap DNA sequence detection. This could be used by doctors to diagnose a number of different diseases including cancers and tuberculosis, as well as identifying antibiotic resistance present in a bacteria sample!
