The development and widespread use of the dermatoscope has strongly influenced the early detection and prevention of skin cancer. In fact, a personal story from our company founder, Helmut A. Heine, helped contribute to this: in 1989, he accompanied his wife when she had a conspicuous lesion examined. He noticed that the examination methods being used at that time had considerable shortcomings with respect to brightness, sharpness, and handling. With the help of Dr. Otto Braun-Falco, the first hand-held dermatoscope, the DELTA10, was developed.  

Since then, the dermatoscope has become an indispensable component in dermatological diagnoses both for dermatologists and for general practitioners. Our dermatology website offers informative posts and exclusive downloads, as well as information on the latest dermatological products.
