Skin Cancer Evaluation. Simplified.

An objective, non-invasive skin cancer evaluation platform, accessible at the point of care via a handheld, point-and-click device.

DermaSensor uses light to non-invasively scan skin lesions to detect properties consistent with malignancy at a cellular and subcellular level. It’s like an ultrasound, but using light instead of sound. The intuitive handheld device provides an immediate, objective result.

How It Works

Scan only those lesions where the next step is unclear.


Identify equivocal lesions where an objective risk assessment would be helpful.


Use our device to analyse, and receive an "Investigate Further" or "Monitor" result.


Counsel your patient on next steps using the objective result to assist in your decision making.

Device Application


  • Simple design, effortless application
  • Non-invasive optical spectroscopy
  • Beneath the skin, cellular-level analysis
  • AI-Powered, ultra-minitiarized ESS Technology
  • 68% decrease in missed skin cancers with use of the device1
  • 96% sensitivity across common skin cancers2

DermaSensor’s technology holds the promise of improving early detection of skin cancer by equipping primary care providers with a tool to better assess it.

DermaSensor looks beyond the visual to improve your decision-making and confidence.

According to the results of a study with 57 GPs, skin cancer detection increases by 13% (from 81% to 94% sensitivity) when using DermaSensor, with no significant decrease in specificity.1

DermaSensor demonstrated 93% sensitivity across melanoma, BCC and SCC (95% for melanoma). DermaSensor use was found to increase physicians’ cancer detection sensitivity from 81% to 94%, and this improvement was statistically significant (p = .0009). There was no statistically significant change in the GP’s specificity, or false positive rate, for benign lesions (p = .3558).
