Lumio® S

Simply, more.

Lumio®S opens a new era in skin diagnostics. With its superb 40 mm lens producing 4x magnification, this convenient device hits the sweet spot between large-area, low magnification viewers and the close quarters of a dermoscopic image.

Lumio S & basal cell carcinoma surgery

In fact, Lumio S lets you see an area that is 4 times larger than what your dermatoscope provides, while showing lesion structures invisible to the naked eye. Simply push & hold to turn on the device, quick-tap to change between two sets of polarized and non-polarized LEDs.

The minimalist design of Lumio S is even more functional than simply cool. A clean, elegant exterior with only a single USB jack is much easier to keep clean between patients, its ergonomic soft-touch body provides a comfortable, secure grip, and its genuine Corning®Gorilla®Glass top and bottom surfaces are extremely strong and scratch-resistant.

Lumio S may be charged from any USB power source using the included USB cable.

Key features:
  • Polarized & non-polarized
  • Large field-of-view
  • See lesion structures
  • Charge via USB

DermLite DL4W

The most refined vision in dermoscopy.
The newest 4th generation DermLite achieves brighter white illumination in both the polarized and non-polarized modes. With its amazingly smooth, ergonomically optimized all-aluminum design that comfortably molds to your hand, DermLite DL4W puts phenomenal versatility, the largest optics of any pocket-size DermLite, and instant on/off control right at your fingertips. 

Larger lens, smaller package.
The DL4W has substantially brighter polarized & non-polarized white illumination when compared to the DL4 model, features a large field of view, and is more than 25% smaller than the previous generation DL3. 

Quick workflows.
DL4 usessnap connectivity to achieve groundbreaking convenience and fast workflows. Not onlycan the glass faceplate (with 10 mm reticle) simply snapped on and off, your mobile devices – iPad, iPhone or other smartphones – can attach magnetically, enabling you to go between taking clinical and dermoscopic photos quicker than ever before.

Infection Control? You're covered.
Along with the growing need for dermoscopy, infection control is becoming an increasingly important aspect of providing care. With its Infection Control and Epidemiology system IceCap™, DL4W has you covered. Disposable snap-on IceCaps attach to the spacer and may greatly reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

Smooth. Speedy. Precise.
A newly developed DL4W retractable glass faceplate design allows you to go between non-contact & contact modalities smoother than ever and lets you precisely focus your image while in skin contact.

See deeper. Even into the battery.
DermLite DL4W’s high-powered LEDs and rechargeable battery produce light in an extremely energy-efficient way. And, in order to know when you run out of battery, DL4W now has a more granular four-level charge indicator. If you need to recharge, you can do so from any USB port using the standard Micro USB to USB cable included with each DL4W.

In its elegance and compactness, DermLite DL4W is simply the most capable dermatoscope available. Includes DermLite DL4W device, USB charger, Napa Leather pouch, silicone sleeve, lens cloth, and 5 IceCaps. 

Warranty: 10 years (for sales after 1 July 2018)

About us

Company details

In late 1999, out of an urge to innovate and excel, John Bottjer, Nizar Mullani, and Thorsten Trotzenberg - the three gentlemen in 3Gen - founded 3Gen LLC as a cutting-edge product design and development company situated in beautiful Orange County, California. 

At the 2001 meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology in Washington, D.C., we launched the DermLite DL100, the world's first polarized pocket dermatoscope – at a time when dermoscopy in the United States had very few users and even fewer fans. Ever since then, we have been tireless in our efforts to help increase dermoscopy awareness and knowledge throughout the world, and the portability and ease of use of our products, combined with our adaptable, user-centric approach, as well as our direct and indirect investments in research, most certainly played no small part in ensuring substantial growth in dermoscopy.

Initially a classic garage operation, today's headquarters in San Juan Capistrano is a state-of-the-art facility where skillful technicians assemble and service our product line. Other team members are located all over the United States and beyond and develop, maintain and travel the world to promote our world-class product portfolio.

With our founders' decades of experience in the design, engineering, and marketing of medical products as well as a solid foundation in imaging technology, we strive to be the leading force in the rapid development of innovative, technologically advanced and, most importantly, highly practical imaging products designed to help optimize the day-to-day workflow of today's and tomorrow's medical professionals.

The technology we incorporate into our products allows us to create design solutions with much better performance characteristics, greater efficiency, and longer life. But more importantly, we utilize a user-centric design approach that evolves making the user's life simpler and easier, with simple-to-use and intuitive products, allowing our customers to focus on what is truly important: the patient. 

We back up our user-centric approach, since as much as we believe in our products, we do not believe in unhappy customers. If you find, for whatever reason, that you are not completely satisfied with your 3Gen purchase, you may return your product and we will fully refund your purchase price.*

Speed and efficiency is important to all medical professionals. We know that time is money. Therefore, we design our products to be among the most affordable products at this level. Although we integrate only the best lighting components, optical lenses and energy sources, we try to keep our products simple, straightforward and, as a result, extraordinarily affordable.

Looking ahead, we realize that in today's world, new technology becomes old technology very quickly. We do everything in our power to move at high speeds and to be among the first to combine emerging and proven technologies to create even more functional and easier-to-use products.
