This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


Here, we integrate 3D-printing technology with low-cost open source electronics to develop a portable diagnostic platform suitable for a wide variety of diagnostic and sensing assays. We demonstrate two different clinical applications in the diagnosis of Clostridium difficile infection and malaria.
