A team from University of California, Davis has given a iPhone surprisingly capable chemical detection and imaging powers thus transforming it into a microscope . The main advantage of this is that it is simple to use and less expensive plus it adds spectroscopy to its list of abilities .
iPhones with such added senses can be especially useful to medical professionals in developing nations where access to quality laboratory equipment can be sketchy at best. This creation will help doctors and other medical professionals in rural areas . You just have to focus the lens on the area to be observed and then gets it images and send to specialists to analyze thus saving time and money .
To enhance the iPhone’s value in the field , the team of the university is now working on iPhone spectrometer . This modest tool reliably expands the light into specific spectra of colors which scientists can match with individual compounds.
