New Approaches for Improved TB Detection

Postdoctoral researcher Dali Sun, of the Biodesign Virginia G. Piper Center for Personalized Diagnostics poses for a portrait while holding the slide where samples are loaded to test for TB in his lab while holding his mobile adaptation of a dark-field microscope at the ASU Biodesign Institute on Monday afternoon October 9th, 2017. Dark-field microscopes can cost over $60,000 USD and Sun aimed to make a mobile phone adaptation of the microscope that could be used in developing areas where access to a traditional desktop darkfield microscope might not be possible.
