    Highlights - Laboratory-on-a-Smartphone by Masaru MITSUSHIO
    “ In the last decade, the performance of smartphones, including the camera device, has rapidly been improving. Each smartphone has a high-speed processing unit, a mass storage, a full color display, a wireless connection device, and a highly sensitive camera in its small enclosure. Also, homemade software can be installed and function on the operating system. There have also been attempts to use smartphones as a part of an analytical instrument, and such a system is called Laboratory-on-a-Smartphone (LoS). ”…
