DailyTech – Bioengineers Create Mini-Microscope

This minuscule microscope could fit comfortably in your pocket — or on a computer chip

The new microscope, which is planned to be used for field “systems on a chip” to test blood samples for malaria or check water supplies for giardia and other pathogens, was developed by engineers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech).  They predict the finished product will cost approximately $10 a unit, making it very affordable in the world of custom electronics.
