Inexpensive device lets a smartphone perform medical diagnoses

Ordinarily, for the spectral analysis of peoples' blood, urine or saliva samples, lab-based machines costing thousands of dollars are required. Needless to say, such equipment isn't always available to clinicians in developing nations, or to patients monitoring their own health at home. Now, however, scientists from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created a US$550 3D-printed device that works with an ordinary smartphone to do the same tests with just as much accuracy...
