Abstract: The rapid expansion of mobile phones and other mobile technologies is set to transform biosensing landscape. In particular the widespread availability of smartphone technology and the capabilities they offer in terms of computation, communication, networking, and imaging will allow a more extensive deployment of lab-on-a-chip and related sensing technologies. Furthermore, the combination of mobile technologies with low-cost sensing concepts such as paper microfluidics could make life-changing health and environmental testing technologies available to many millions more people both in the developed and developing worlds. We demonstrate how a mobile phone may be exploited for “instrument free” ECL detection by using the camera to detect luminescence; or for voltammetric analysis by using the microphone connection to follow electrolysis current. In combination with simple paper based sensors these platforms will enable analytical measurements to be made at close to zero cost.
