Digital assays are quickly becoming a gold standard method for accurately quantifying biomarkers, but systems to perform these assays still require complex, expensive equipment and highly trained users limiting their adoption in resource limited settings. In this paper, we describe the development of a simple digital assay reader that would expand access of digital assays to multiple settings.
