Biomarker Imaging with Mobile Phones

We built a low-cost and open source 405 nm imaging device to capture red fluorescence signatures associated with the oral biomarker porphyrin, demonstrating comparable performance to an expensive commercially available device.  We also provide a miniaturized mobile-adaptable version of the device. A step-by-step guide for device assembly and the associated computer vision algorithm are shared on the project website to facilitate open-source access to imaging technologies.
