Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope

VivaScope 3000

Due to its low weight (only 0.7 kg) and compact design, the latest generation handheld VivaScope 3000 is especially flexible when it comes to challenging imaging locations.

The portable confocal laser-scanning microscope simplifies in vivo examinations of uneven skin areas especially in the face. It delivers stable, undistorted and clear images e.g. of the nose, the ears and other difficult to access regions.

The VivaScope 3000 is highly suitable for investigating large skin areas affected by actinic keratosis or lentigo maligna. Since the examination reveals the tissue in cellular resolution, the spread of lentigo maligna can be determined very precisely. Pre-surgical mapping of lentigo maligna using the VivaScope 3000 not only significantly optimises treatment but also improves patient care management.

The handheld VivaScope 3000 is available as stand-alone device or as add-on to the VivaScope 1500.
