CellScope Could Offer Low-Cost, Portable Options for Disease Diagnosis

CellScope in actionWhat started as a basic college class assignment spawned an invention that could help bring the benefits of modern microscopy to the developing world. Student researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, and their professor have developed a camera-phone microscope that is powerful enough to diagnose diseases such as malaria and tuberculosis.
