Wearable Microscope Can Measure Fluorescent Dyes Through Skin

A team of researchers at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and collaborators has developed a mobile microscope that can detect and monitor fluorescent biomarkers inside the skin with a high level of sensitivity. The device, which is small and light enough for a person to wear, could be an important tool in tracking various biochemical reactions for medical diagnostics and therapy, including continuous patient monitoring at home or at point-of-care settings.
