Dino-Lite DermaScope ®

With the Dino-Lite DermaScope® a new generation of compact and affordable dermatoscopes has seen the light. These handy, easy-to-use USB digital microscopes can be quickly deployed and used to create sharp and clear photos and videos of a wide variety of skin problems without pain or long waiting times for the patient.

All Dino-Lite DermaScopes have a built-in adjustable polarizer that reduces the gloss effects of the skin. This allows better imaging of the skin layers, lesions and nevi. The DermaScope supports the use of water or oil, but this is not always necessary.

The Dino-Lite DermaScopes are available with different levels of magnification, the best-selling models have two different levels of magnification (about 20x to about 45x) without the need to change the distance to the skin. If the extra cap is used, it is also possible to take an image with a larger surface area with a magnification of approximately 10x.


Ideal for quick scan or screening
Due to these properties, the DermaScopes® are particularly suitable for rapid, detailed images of the skin, that can be stored, edited, or analysed. This allows the doctor or dermatologist to work more efficiently and makes the DermaScopes ideal for quick scans, screening or pre-screening of potential patients.

Because of the speed of operation, simplicity in use and digital storage and sharing of images the Dino-Lite dermatoscopes are commonly used tools for teledermatology, a rapidly growing form of service which contributes to the necessary efficiency improvements in healthcare.

The Dino-Lite DermaScopes are available in four versions:

medl4dw      The DermaScope Polarizer (MEDL4DW) with a 1.3 megapixel camera, this dermascope is often used by eg GPs or practice nurses and is suitable for dermatological photography in general practice.

medl7dw   The DermaScope Polarizer HR (MELD7DW) features a high-resolution 5-megapixel camera and a sleek metal housing and is used by all who have higher demands on the equipment.



  Finally, there are two DermaScopes with a higher magnification (10-70x and 200x), a 1.3 megapixel model (MEDL4DM) and a 5 megapixel version (MEDL7DM). These models are often used for specific dermatological applications or analyzing skin biopsies.


The Dino-Lite DermaScopes are definitely not just for medical professionals such as general practitioners or dermatologists, the ease of use and affordability also make the DermaScope a great tool for skin therapists or aesthetic professions. Obviously all DermaScopes are certified as medical devices under directive 93/42/EEC, modified 2007/47/EC.
