FEASIBILITY STUDY ON BLOOD CELL COUNTING USING MOBILE PHONE-BASED PORTABLE MICROSCOPE

Waliullah A S M.

Abstract
Objectives: To check the feasibility of using the mobile phone-based microscope for blood cell counting from human blood histological sample. Methodology: A feasibility study was performed by imaging blood histology samples with one novel type of microscope “Foldscope” and image compared with a conventional microscope in the laboratory facility. The image acquired from both modalities were processed further and compared and analyzed. Results: Mobile phone-based microscope acquired images were observed and compared with a conventional microscope and found the blood cell counting feasibility and morphology analysis of the blood histology sample were significantly similar as of conventional light microscope images. Conclusion: By comparing the image from both microscopes, it could be stated that this method is feasible for human blood histopathological sample investigations like blood cell counting and morphology analysis especially in the low resource area or in case of any emergency situations.

Key words: Mobile phone-based microscope;Blood cell count;Microscope
