Short summary
We describe a low-cost instrument to characterize fluorescence and spectral properties of single particles collected onto a substrate. The instrument combines relatively old astronomy concepts with a new platform applied especially toward the analysis of bioaerosols. We discuss a laboratory-based instrument as well as an iPhone-enabled device that could encourage collaborations with citizen scientists for expanded data collection and at a cost orders of magnitude less than existing instruments.
