Online Tools

Here you'll find online tools and resources that have been produced by, or are relevant to, the Centre for Nanoscale Biophotonics.

Smartphone Microscope

CNBP researchers have developed a 3D printable  'clip-on' that can turn any smartphone into a fully functional microscope. Read more from the science paper and downoad the relevant 3D printable files here. Notes relating to the 3D printing process are also available.

Smartphone Biosensing

Smartphones can be reconfigured as portable bioanalytical devices. Read more about 'Medically Relevant Assays with a Simple Smartphone and Tablet Based Fluorescence Detection System'. CNBP's biosensing application is also available for download.


The Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics links Australia's key nanophotonics groups and builds on Global Collaborations with a focus on doing the science required to advance biology.
