Low-cost in vivo microscopy technologies
Innovative medical imaging technologies often face challenges in wide clinical adoption due to the high device cost. We have developed the world’s first Smartphone-based Confocal Microscope that can examine microscopic details of human skin in vivo. We continue to develop low-cost in vivo microscopy devices for various clinical applications in low-resource settings, ranging from local clinics in low-income countries to underserved communities in developed countries.

Smartphone-based ex vivo tissue microscopy
We are developing smartphone based ex vivo tissue microscopy technologies that can examine the freshly excised tissues at the point of care. The smartphone epifluorescence microscopy can reveal biomarkers relevant to various human diseases.
