Now, a smartphone-based microscope developed by researchers at the California NanoSystems Institute at UCLA and at Sweden’s Stockholm University and Uppsala University could make the mutation testing accessible to health care workers even in remote locations, without the need for large, expensive lab equipment. The device can image and analyze specific DNA sequences and genetic mutations in tumor cells and tissue samples without having to first extract DNA from them.
