The handheld VivaScope® 3000 delivers images of living tissues in cellular resolution and real time. Due to its low weight (0,7kg) and compact design, the handheld device is especially well-suited for everyday use. The confocal laser scanning microscope simplifies examining difficult to access skin regions.
VivaScope® 3000: Handheld confocal laser scanning microscope for in vivo use
The VivaScope 3000 delivers black and white images of living tissue in cellular resolution and real time. Due to its low weight and compact design, the handheld VivaScope 3000 is especially flexible when it comes to daily routine tasks. The portable confocal laser scanning microscope simplifies examining difficult to access skin regions such as the nose or behind the knee and delivers in vivo stable, undistorted, clear images. The VivaScope 3000 facilitates scanning large skin areas as with actinic keratosis, for example, since it works without being fixated with the tissue ring.
As with the VivaScope 1500, an in vivo, non-invasive view is possible into the epidermis and the dermis all the way down to the upper stratum reticulare. Cellular microstructures of skin can thereby be depicted cell by cell in horizontal "optical cross-sections" (approx. 5.0 µm section thickness).
The handheld device is a practical supplement for the VivaScope 1500. The VivaScope 3000 was specifically designed for use in everyday routine applications in clinics and physicians' offices. It is easy to use and saves time. A special setup or environment is not required for its use.
