Illinois researchers to develop smartphone diagnostics lit for infectious diseases

(University of Illinois College of Engineering) Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are developing a lab-on-a-smartphone system that will enable healthcare professionals to detect disease at the point of care. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, the 4-year grant will enable the team to develop a handheld instrument that can detect and report the presence of pathogens in less than 30 minutes using a single drop of blood - all with a smartphone clip-on instrument that costs less than $10.
