Welcome

One of the most basic—yet powerful—tools in all of science and medicine is the microscope. At the Fletcher Lab at the University of California, Berkeley, we have designed equipment to turn the camera of a standard cell phone into a diagnostic-quality microscope with a magnification of 5x-60x. Cell-phone microscopy enables visualization of samples, followed by capture, organization, and transmission of images critical for diagnosis. This technology is applicable in a wide range of applications beyond diagnostic medicine.
