The NC1 Dermatoscope is truly two instruments in one.

It allows detailed, non-contact examination of the patient in a first NEW screening, without unnecessary skin contact and disinfection. Should a skin lesion need to be examined more closely, a contact plate can be added, transforming the NC1 into a contact Dermatoscope with increased magnification and a scale.

High-resolution aspheric optics provides unmatched sharpness and resolution; LEDHQ illumination offers true and natural colour rendering. The solid aluminum frame combined with HEINE Quality guarantee a long lifespan.

  • Non-Contact Dermatoscopy – Non-contact screening for efficient examination and a professional distance from the patient. Large field of view, excellent depth of field with 6 x magnifiaction.
  • Polarised Light – Detailed views of crystalline and vascular structures without reflexes.
  • Optional Contact Plate – Magnetic contact plate with 9 x magnification provides high-quality contact images for a more detailed diagnosis.
  • LED In HEINE Quality – Advanced LED illumination for an absolutely homogeneous light with true and natural colour rendering.

The solid aluminium frame combined with HEINE Quality guarantee a long lifespan.

HEINE offers a 5 year guarantee

HEINE makes no compromises in manufacturing high quality medical instruments. Our commitment to vertical integration in manufacturing means we control all aspects of our instrument quality, from utilising carefully selected, well-matched materials to a high level of hand assembly. This ensures that each HEINE instrument meets or exceeds all requirements in any medical environment.
LED Thermal Management. LED illumination systems require thermal management to ensure long-term performance and product stability. Carefully selected and applied heat-diffusing materials guarantee consistent quality and performance throughout the LED’s lifetime rating of up to 50.000 hours.

Aluminum Frame – all functional components of the instrument head are mounted on an aluminum frame, giving advanced stability to the device for a long working life.


Non-Contact Dermatoscope – Speed and diagnostic accuracy for the daily demands of a busy practice. 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. Enables dermatoscopy without any need for conact liquids.

Precision HEINE Optics with 6 x magnification – The high quality aspherical optical system provides unmatched sharpness and resolution.

LED in HQ: The new standard in LED illumination defining optimal light intensity, homogeneity and colour rendering for the most accurate diagnosis. Red is red, blue is blue. Colour temperature: 5,000 K, Colour Rendering Index (CRI) > 80, special index for red colours (R9) > 35 on a maximum scale of 100.

Optional Contact Plate with additional magnification – combining the best of two philosophies, adding the optional contact plate transforms the NC1 for contact dermoscopy, increasing magnification (9 x) plus offering a scale. The speed and ease of use of non-contact dermoscopy combined with the detail and precision of a contact device, all in one instrument!

Compact and ergonomic design makes the NC1 the ideal flexible tool for use in medical practices as well as packing it for mobile applications.
