Mobile microscopy for the examination of blood samples

Juliane Pfeil, Marcus Frohme, Katja Schulze

Abstract


The analysis of blood is one of the best possibilities to diagnose and control diseases and deficiency symptoms. Common blood tests that are performed in medical laboratories are time-consuming and work-intensive. In under-developed areas, there is often also a lack of specialised staff and facilities. The development of a mobile microscopic system that contains an automated image analysis and that can be used via a smartphone, could represent a valuable help to improve the diagnostic care, especially in those areas. it aims to enable a very fast, cheap, location- and knowledge-independent application for many use cases.


Keywords
