Paper Abstract

There’s a constant need for improvement of optical bio/chemosensoristic devices on key aspects such as portability, cheapness, integration and simplification of experimental protocol. Moreover, new requirements are rapidly gaining ground: connectivity for real time remote access and big data analysis, needs for easy design approaches of customized components, suitability in resource-poor settings or educational context. According to this scenario, the combination of consumer electronics, open-source 3D printing and microcontrollers running on free software are opening completely new possibilities to develop powerful, low-cost and highly customizable research tools for students, scientists, engineers, and lab personnel
