  • Features

    A 2-way capillaroscope

    先端部分 The observation of nail fold capillaries

    (1) A "Desk nailfold capillaroscope" that enables "non-invasive observation"

    The GOKO Bscan-Pro makes the observation of capillaries much easier and clearer.
    Thus far, it has been difficult to observe nail fold capillaries because of the need for ultra-high magnifications. At these magnifications, quality is easily affected by even the slightest finger movements or unevenness of finger surface. However, the GOKO Bscan-Pro facilitates "motionless observation" with its novel structure that keeps the camera and fingers stable.
    It allows non-invasive observation of capillaries without blood sampling; this relaxes the patient, and thus, leads to precise results.

    (2) A"Handheld microscope" that allows the observation of the whole body surface

    The observation in the back of the hand The observation of the back of the hand by attaching Attachment A or B

    The GOKO Bscan-Pro can be used not only as "desktop nailfold capillaroscope" but also as a "handheld microscope."
    All you need to do is just touch the object with the GOKO Bscan-Pro: No focusing is required to obtain high quality microscopic images.
    Because of its compact and handheld shape, the GOKO Bscan-Pro is best suited for enhanced magnified observation of the whole body surface.
    The GOKO Bscan-Pro includes 2 types of "Attachments" that are interchangeable according to the shape of the objects (uneven or flat).


    Features GOKO's precise optical system

    A good optical system is essential to achieve good clarity and better image quality. GOKO has a proud history of more than 60 years' as a Japanese manufacturer of finished optical products, and we place considerable empahsis on developing fine optical systems and not just increasing the number of pixels. Our fine optical system realizes greater clarity and better quality.


    Captures smooth live video without time lags

    An NTSC full-motion real-time video system captures extremely smooth real-time monitoring with no time lags.


    100x100×
    300x300×

    Powerful zoom for various uses

    Magnifications (100× and 300×) can be quickly changed, and there is no need to focus.


    Extremely light and compact!

    Gross weight is less than 450 g, and it is extremely compact.
    Because of these features, the GOKO Bscan-Pro enables single-handed operation for long periods of time without stress. It is also very portable.


    Features high luminosity LED: cool, bright, and extremely long-life!

    lighting

    The GOKO Bscan-Pro features a maintenance-free lighting system. Unlike devices with halogen lamps, there is no need to change bulbs.
    No heat is generated that may damage skin or scalp over long observation periods.

    GOKO's own fine optical system realizes greater clarity and better quality in ultra-high-magnification images.

    *Requires oil application to the object surface

    Nail fold capillaries

    The GOKO Bscan-Pro enables the observation of capillaries and blood flow or even red corpuscles inside the capillaries, simply by applying oil to the surface of the object.
