1 / Microscopy

We designed extremely cost-effective microscopy technology that is attachable to a phone camera in order to magnify samples and adequately examine microcontaminants in our water. 

2 / Image Recognition

With the magnified sample, PhoneScope then uses image recognition technology and machine learning to instantly determine if and what type of microcontaminants are in the water.

3 / Citizen Science

With the PhoneScope, citizens will have the power to test and examine their water for microcontaminants. This data is then mapped to better track contamination and enable rapid response.

The PhoneScope In Action

Identify Microcontaminants in your Water Instantly.
