Hand-held synchronous scan spectrometer for in situ detection of pathogens and mineral deficiency in blood
MetadataShow full item record
A hand-held synchronous scan spectrometer for in situ analysis of bacteria, viruses, and fungi includes a housing that contains a light source, a first monochromator positioned to receive light from the light source and operable to direct a wavelength of the light from the light source towards a sample, a second monochromator positioned to receive fluoresced light from the sample and light from first monochromator, and a detector disposed within the housing and positioned to receive light output from the second monochromator. The hand-held synchronous scan spectrometer can include a display that is integrated into the housing or can utilize a display of a removable display device (e.g., a cell phone, PDA, tablet, and the like).
