To test the bacteria, 10 LED lights were installed in the mobile camera with 3D ring. Researchers say, the bacteria emit special waves, so it is not caught by ordinary mobile cameras. But their waves are detected by black LED light. It is proved that bacteria are present.

Bacteria are more visible on the skin
Researcher Dr. Qinghua says, when the LED light is lit, a special type of molecule (porphyrin) released from the bacteria gives a red glowing signal. It is captured by the smartphone’s camera.

When skin wounds do not heal, the porphyrin molecule can be mostly seen on the skin because many bacteria are present, says Dr. Qinghua.
