Test your food for aflatoxins on your smartphone

Hi everyone,

As my last entry for FoodSmartphone project, I am going to share with you a Video showing our developed assay for aflatoxin testing on your smartphone. Aflatoxins are dangerous food contaminants, associated with development of liver cancer. Therefore, it is crucial to test your food for aflatoxins. The food safety testing system requires sampling, transferring the samples to an equipped laboratory. So testing is expensive and time-consuming. In this Video, you will learn how you could do aflatoxin testing using your smartphone. This test is a portable,  cheap, and disposable way to screen your food for aflatoxins contamination on-site.

We will publish more videos of FoodSmartphone devices by other ESRs in the coming weeks. So check out our blog for more videos.

Best,

Safiye
