Main trends in development of analytical instrumentation involve design a measuring instruments, which are able to provide the largest possible amount of analytical information about analyzed material, but simultaneously also simplification and scaling-down analytical instruments towards a possible use directly by users without specialized training. Both those development trends are associated with another important tendency, which is the elimination of direct human effort in carrying out different operations in chemical analytical procedures by design of measuring systems, which are mechanized, robotized, or even completely automated involving various contributions of artificial intelligence. One of elements used also for further instrumental progress, is in recent decade the application of mobile phones in further modification of analytical devices for remote and personal use. The potential utility value of a concept to equip mobile-phones in chemical sensors can be considered as a very efficient way for improving the access to a personal analytical devices for instance in bioanalytical applications, smartphone-based biosensors, and integration of microfluidic devices and smartphones.
