Malaria Diagnosis Using a Mobile Phone Polarized Microscope

  title={Malaria Diagnosis Using a Mobile Phone Polarized Microscope},
  author={Casey W. Pirnstill and Gerard L. Cot{\'e}},
  booktitle={Scientific reports},
Malaria remains a major global health burden, and new methods for low-cost, high-sensitivity, diagnosis are essential, particularly in remote areas with low-resource around the world. In this paper, a cost effective, optical cell-phone based transmission polarized light microscope system is presented for imaging the malaria pigment known as hemozoin. It can be difficult to determine the presence of the pigment from background and other artifacts, even for skilled microscopy technicians. The… CONTINUE READING
