The AM4115-N2UT maximum magnification of 220x is the recommended choice for its versatility and ease of use.
Capillaroscopy is a non-invasive, easy and safe diagnostic technique designed to evaluate small vessels of the microcirculation in the nail fold. It can reveal both the general architecture of capillary rows and fine details of particular vessels.
Selecting the right scope
Handheld digital videocapillaroscopes such as the Dino-Lite AM4115-N2UT (10x – 220x), AF4515-N4UT (430x – 470x), and AM4113-N5UT (500x), capillaroscopy provide precise qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the microcirculation and is a valuable tool in a rheumatologists’ daily practice.
The AM4115-N2UT with a maximum magnification of 220x is the recommended choice for its versatility and ease of use. It can be used in any situation, from bedside examinations to patients with severe flexion contractures. The new WF4115-N2UT(W) version offers Wi-Fi wireless connection for added portability.
Keep in mind the use case for a scope is usually for quick simple examinations, therefore we highly recommend the use of the AM4115N2UT (10x – 220x) as opposed to the higher magnification microscopes unless the high magnification is absolutely necessary. High magnification use is a lot more involved, requiring absolute stability, and more user patience as the focal plane is much thinner, however, with longer user experience, the high magnification use is possible.
