The Dino-Lite DermaScope® is an easy to use digital microscope that can make high quality closeup images and video of skin. These images go much further than the digital camera with macro lens that is common for this application. This is why many professionals are now using the Dino-Lite DermaScope®.

The DermaScope can be positioned on the skin – either with a water or oil lubricant – to look at and make a picture of a nevus or lesion. The magnification achieved with the DermaScope will show the practioner what the naked eye cannot see and help him to make the right diagnosis. The patient can view the result on the computer screen at the same time.

The Dino-Lite DermaScope is connected to and powered by the USB port of the computer, so there are no batteries to replace or charge. The DermaScope also features its own 8 LED's which makes an external light source superfluous and the DermaScope a very versatile instrument.

The DermaScope is not only use by dermatologists to assist in their diagnosis, but also by general practitioners. They use the DermaScope as part of a teledermatology setup, one of the applications in the fast growing practice of telemedicine. The doctor can send the clinical and dermatological photo's to a dermatologist together with the patient history and questions. The dermatologist can give his judgment and advice at a distance and the patient only actually visits the dermatologist if he thinks the question is suspicious.

All versions of the Dino-Lite DermaScope are also applicable in veterinary applications which further underline the versatility of the Dino-Lite. The DermaScope is quite sturdy and will function under most circumstances. The polarization filter that is available on all models will help to reduce the reflections of shiny skin which will improve the quality of the images. The DermaScope comes standard with software for Windows and MacOS that opens up all functionality of the digital microscope.

The Dino-Lite DermaScope is available in a 5 megapixel model with sturdy metal housing, but also in a 1,3 megapixel version with durable composite housing. The DermaScope is suitable for intensive daily use. Obviously the DermaScope complies with the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC, modified 2007/47/EC.
