Title: Point-of-Care and AgBio Diagnostics by Connected Smartphone Sensors

Abstract: Recent advances in optical sensing and molecular technologies have considerably broadened the scope of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics from simple dipstick tests to more integrated devices that can perform sample preparation, assay reaction, signal quantification and data processing, all in one platform. Smartphone-based imaging and sensing devices are among the next-generation biosensors that have shown great potential to transform the diagnostic field. The constant improvement of the performance of the image sensors and reduction of the price of the smartphone devices have placed a transformative microscopy and sensing tool in billions of users' hands.
