< $10 microscopes for cell phones


This product was created by Aydogan Ozcan, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at UCLA, with assistance from members of the Ozcan Research Group. They have won so many prizes and have received so much press - it's all listed here:)

The product's underlying technology has a long name - "L"ensless, "U"ltra wide-field, "C"ell monitoring "A"rray platform based on "S"hadow imaging. You can also call it by its acronym - LUCAS:)

I love that it can be used to test water samples, as well as blood samples. Affordable water quality testing method, anyone? :)
