Care and Maintenance

The DermLite is designed for trouble-free operation. There are no adjustments to be made nor is any special servicing required. Never attempt to open the device for any reason.

 

Cleaning and Sterilisation

The DermLite body may be cleaned or disinfected by wiping it with Isopropyl alcohol (70% vol.). Do not use alcohol or disinfectants in the optical areas of the unit. Do not use abrasive material on any part of the equipment or immerse the device in liquid. Do not autoclave.

 

Cleaning the Lens and the Polarizers

The lens and the polarizing filters should be treated as high quality photographic equipment and should be cleaned with standard lens cleaning equipment and protected from harmful chemicals.

 

Removable Faceplate (DL2 & DL3 models)

To clean the faceplate of the DL2 & 3 models simply extend the spacer dial (B) to extend the spacer and twist off the small glass faceplate in the very front of the spacer.

After approximately 1,000 charges, the battery’s capacity will diminish and the battery may need to be replaced.

  • After a minimum 4-hour initial charge, the lithium-ion battery provides up to 2 hours of continuous operation, or enough power for imaging approximately 600 lesions at 30 seconds per examination.

  • Once the battery is depleted, the unit will automatically shut off, and will need to be recharged.

  • Plug the charging cord into the round DC charging port (G), and the red charging indicator (H) will illuminate.

  • Once the battery is fully charged, the green indicator will light up (I).
