Abstract
A portable microscope/microendoscope will be presented in this article. The system was specially designed for Smartphones and taking into account its simplicity, will be able to bring this technology to almost every doctor’s office. It is worth mentioning its flexibility of use, that allows several modes since all the components are interchangeable (the illumination LED, the lens, the optic filters, etc) resulting in different applications, from medical applications until other areas (for example, the inspection of non-accessible pieces of plane engines). In addition, the system has a double platform, working as a conventional microscope or as a fiberoptic microendoscope. In situ and cell smear interrogation of oral mucosa, using a proflavine as dye will be presented. The price of the system does not exceed US$ 350, plus the price of the fiber bundle (around US$ 500) turning it onto a high resolution affordable system.
