Abstract

We demonstrate a field portable waterborne pathogen detection platform capable of analyzing large volume (e.g., ∼10 ml) water samples in less than one hour, including sample preparation steps. This smartphone based platform consists of a flow through assay cassette and a fluorescence microscope that is integrated onto the camera module of the smartphone. This pathogen detection platform enables rapid imaging and quantification of fluorescently labeled Giardia lamblia cysts captured on filter membranes within disposable cassettes.
