With handyscope for iPhone and the corresponding App, FotoFinder has linked dermoscopy with smartphone technology.
Now, the new online-platform Hub allows doctors to upload handyscope pictures to their private webspace in the web-database via a secured connection to store them and request a rating from international skin cancer experts. Suspicious moles can be immediately sent to the experts to confirm the initial diagnosis with a second opinion.
This opens up new possibilities for teledermatology: also patients without access to specialists can get best diagnostic quality in case of skin cancer suspicion. They can benefit from their doctor's network and count on an accurate and fast diagnosis. Thanks to the early skin cancer detection, the chance of healing can be improved substantially.
"Hub and handyscope lead the way to widespread skin cancer prevention as the second opinion service gives patients worldwide the chance of early detection with precise diagnosis", explains Andreas Mayer, CEO of FotoFinder Systems.
The Hub works with handyscope, the first mobile connected dermatoscope. The precision engineered lens is connected to the iPhone and allows taking mole pictures with up to twentyfold magnification. The brilliant microscopic pictures show important details of moles at a glance.
The German company was founded in 1991 and is a worldwide leading manufacturer of imaging devices for skin cancer diagnostics, aesthetic medicine and clinical trials. Thanks to subsidiaries and a global distributors' network, FotoFinder Systems has a worldwide presence.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
