Make DermaSensor™ Your New Assistant for Skin Cancer Care

A handheld, point-and-click device for GPs to quickly assess skin lesions for cancer risk.

Enabling Early Detection Through Non-Invasive Optical Spectroscopy

Rapid Recording

Rapid Recording

Evaluation process provides a result to support your clinical decision at the point of care

Easy to Use

Easy To Use

Wireless, ergonomic design makes the device intuitive to learn and easy to use
Optical Spectroscopy

Optical Spectroscopy

Light-emitting tip non-invasively touches the lesion, receiving and analyzing data from below the skin at cellular and subcellular levels
Risk Assessment

Risk Assessment

Provides an instant "Investigate Further" or "Monitor" result using DermaSensor’s proprietary algorithm

Simple Design. Effortless Application.

  • Intuitive on-screen user interface guides you step-by-step through the evaluation
  • Activate a recording using either the touch-screen interface or conveniently positioned side buttons

DermaSensor is not a camera or dermatoscope. DermaSensor uses pulses of light and elastic scattering spectroscopy to assess a lesion’s cellular and sub-cellular structures.

DermaSensor Device Profile and Tip

Non-Invasive Sub-Millimetre Analysis

  • Device tip is painlessly touched to the surface of a lesion, emitting over 40 different wavelengths of light to receive cellular and subcellular data from below the skin's surface
  • Precision optics within the tip capture pathological irregularities, and DermaSensor can be used on skin lesions as small as 2.5mm

Always at Your Side

  • The handheld unit charges wirelessly in the desktop base
  • The small footprint and ergonomic design of the device allows it to be set up on your desk in minutes. No wall-mount installation or hardware required.

How It Works

Lesion Identification

Lesion Identification

Identify the lesion of concern on your patient, and simply pick up the device. Now you're ready to take recordings.
DermaSensor Scan

DermaSensor Scan

Gently touch the small device tip to the lesion, taking instant spectroscopic recordings at different positions of the lesion.
Photo Scattering

Photo Scattering

Light scatters from particles in the cells of the skin tissue back to DermaSensor's spectral sensor.
Algorithmic Analysis

Algorithmic Analysis

Our proprietary algorithm analyzes the reflected photons and provides an immediate "Investigate Further" or "Monitor" result.

DermaSensor May Help You To:

  • Make better and more confident decisions
  • Catch 13% more skin cancer as demonstrated in a study with 57 GPs1
  • Detect 93% of skin cancer while avoiding up to 37% of benign excisions which have unnecessary morbidity1
  • Augment your typical skin assessment routine and increase your reimbursement level
  • Increase revenue by introducing a value-based skin health service with out of pocket contributions by patients
  • Improve your practice’s image by incorporating new and innovative technology

DermaSensor Is Built for the Front Lines

Enabling Healthcare Professionals

Australians usually consult a General Practitioner (GP) to conduct skin health examinations, in part due to unavailability of specialists. But early diagnosis in primary care is often hampered by limited consultation time. Still, GPs undertake more than 1 million consultations for skin cancer annually.

GPs are at the front line of skin cancer detection for most Australians. DermaSensor will help you better assess identified skin lesions and determine whether patients need additional clinical care. All trained members of the healthcare team will be able to benefit from the device's simple-to-use design. Detecting cancer at an earlier stage holds the potential to save lives, and our device provides a quicker route to identifying skin cancer risk.
