              • Nanotech tool could make disease diagnosis with smartphones feasible
              • Device offers alternative to conventional microscopes and tissue-staining
              • New tool could make at-home disease detection plausible 

              A nanotech imaging device, tiny enough to fit on a smartphone camera lens, has the potential to make the diagnosis of certain diseases accessible and affordable for people in rural and remote regions, say Australian scientists who developed it.
