LED thermal management: LED illumination systems require thermal management. Carefully selected heat-diffusing materials guarantee consistent quality and performance for up to 50.000 hours. Aluminium frame: more stability to the device for a long working life. Non-Contact Dermatoscope: examining patients without touching the skin saves time and provides more professional distance between examiner and investigation area. Polarised Illumination for detailed views of the crystalline and vascular structures. Allows examinations without contact liquids. Precision HEINE Optics with 6X magnification: highquality, aspherical optical system provides unsurpassed sharpness and resolution. LED in HQ: optimal light intensity, homogeneity and colour rendering for each individual examination Colour temperature: 5.000 K Colour Rendering Index (CRI) 80 Special index for red colours (R9) 35 on a maximum scale of 100. This ensures true tissue colour for the most accurate diagnosis. Optional Contact Plate with additional magnification: adding the contact plate transforms NC1 in a contact dermoscopy, increasing magnification (9X) plus offering a scale. It combines the speed and ease of use of non-contact dermoscopy with the detail and precision of a contact device.
