DermLite GL Dermatoscope with 2 Lenses
Unlike common dermatoscopes, the DermLite GL from 3Gen is equipped with two lenses instead of only one. Both lenses differ in their magnification and function. While the front, somewhat larger lens features 1.4x magnification, the back, somewhat smaller lens features 6x magnification.
The lens with the lower magnification is especially suited for general, slightly magnified skin exams, while the lens with the stronger magnification is suited for dermoscopy under polarised light or with the help of an immersion liquid. This allows the dermatologist to professionally examine skin changes as well as the surrounding areas without changing the instrument.
Especially Lightweight and Compact
The DermLite GL is only 0.7 cm thick and 16 cm long. The light weight ensures that the dermatoscope sits well in the user's hand and that it is not too heavy when attached to a smartphone. The compact dimensions and the light weight also make the DermLite GL great for user's with smaller hands.
Plastic Cap to Protect the Lenses
Included with the DermLite GL is a transparent protective cap made of sturdy plastic which is simply slid over each lens when the dermatoscope is not in use. This guards the lenses from contamination and scratches. Furthermore, the protective cap features a clip that is used to attach the DermLite GL to clothing (e.g. in a shirt pocket). The protective cap simultaneously covers the power button on the side of the instrument to prevent you from accidentally turning on the dermatoscope in your pocket. This saves the battery and prevents unnecessary loss of LED longevity.
Simple Operation of the DermLite GL
The DermLite GL is intuitively operated, as it only has a single multifunctional button on the side. By pressing the button, the device turns on and activates the 4 LEDs for the front lens. In this mode, the DermLite GL can be used for general orientation exams. By pressing the multifunctional button again, the 4 LEDs on the back lens turn on. By holding the button for multiple seconds, the device turns off completely.

DermLite GL and Smartphone Compatibility
The DermLite GL dermatoscope can be connected with virtually all smartphones and used for documentation of the exam. There are two different smartphone adapters available for this purpose.
The Smartphone/Tablet Adapter with MagnetiConnect
With this practical smartphone adapter, you only need to choose your model of smartphone and you will receive an adapter that can be used with all smartphone-compatible dermatoscopes from 3Gen as well as the new DermLite GL. The adapter is shaped like a bumper and delivered with an adapter ring with which the smartphone can be precisely attached to the dermatoscope.
The Universal Smartphone Adapter
The universal adapter is used either when you want to work with various smartphones and tablets or if your smartphone model is not available in the list of regular smartphone adapters. This adapter was conceived to fit any mobile phone. The holder width and adapter ring position can be individually adjusted to accommodate your phone.
Regardless of which adapter you are using, the images taken for documentation purposes will be done by the camera function on your phone or tablet. There is no special app for this, as the images can be very simply sent per email, MMS or WhatsApp; likewise, they can be edited with the integrated image editor on your device. This brings the advantage of the user being able to document the examinations no matter which smartphone or tablet he is using.
