Proceedings Paper

Mobile phone microscopy for clinical and public health use in low-resource settings (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Isaac Bogoch

Paper Abstract

Mobile phone microscopy has the ability to transform clinical and public health care in low-resource settings. This session will explore innovative approaches to mobile phone microscopy, and then discuss how mobile microscopy can be integrated into low-resource settings. We will examine creative microscopy solutions to tackle diagnostic challenges, and evaluate current pitfalls to implementation and scale of mobile phone microscopy. The session will also focus on field implementation of microscopes, and how to best engineer and design devices for use in low-resource settings.
