University of California researchers have developed a lens-free imaging technique small enough to fit in a mobile phone, which can be a boon in developing countries where healthcare is non-existent.

The study outlines improvements in a technique known as Lucas, or 'lensless ultra-wide-field cell monitoring array,' platform based on shadow imaging, reports IANS.

Lucas technique demonstrated a method for quickly and accurately counting targeted cell types in a homogenous cell solution. Removing lens from the imaging process allows Lucas to be scaled down for integration into a cellphone.

Samples could be loaded into a specially equipped phone using a disposable microfluidic chip.

University of California, Los Angeles researchers have further refined Lucas technique to be able to classify a significantly larger sample volumeup to 5 ml, up from a tenth of one mlrepresenting a major step toward portable medical diagnostic applications.

The research team, led by Aydogan Ozca ...more
