Dermatology Applications with Dino-Lite

This is a Dino-Lite digital microscope application blog post focusing on dermatology. All the sample images shown were captured by Dino-Lite microscopes, and in this post, we’ll talk about the best ways to capture images like these.  


The Dino-Lite is a handheld microscope camera with most standard models going up to 220 times magnification, and high-magnification models going up to 900 times. These models are connected to a computer via USB and include an easy-to-use software that allows users to capture images and video as well as many other basic and advanced features. Standard Dino-Lite working distance allows for fifty times and two hundred twenty times magnification when the end of the Dino-Lite nozzle is in contact with the object being viewed. This is an example of the standard working distance and corresponding magnification examples.  

Some models have a built-in adjustable polarizer that help provide more clarity and different results in imaging. There are also different fluorescent models to choose from with varying wavelengths. The included software has measurement for compatible measurement models as well as drawing and annotation tools crosshair features and transparency modes.

Some adjustable camera options include white balance, brightness/contrast, hue as well as negative and monochrome modes and more.  


Here are some compatible and recommended accessories:

The RK-10A is a tabletop stand with a quick release button and fine adjustment.

MS33W is an articulating stand good for simple adjustable angles and movement. The different portable handheld stands are also great for quick skin examination.

There are also options for mobile viewing including a Wi-Fi adapter, and convert an existing traditional microscope to digital by replacing the eyepiece with a Dino-Eye eyepiece camera.
