MoleMax was the first digital epiluminescence microscopy system developed in cooperation with the medical faculty of the university Vienna, department of dermatology (Univ.-Prof. Klaus Wolff, M. D.) In 1997 MoleMax was presented to international experts at the Melanoma World Congress and the following Dermatology World Congress in Sydney and generated great public interest. Since then over 2000 MoleMax systems are in use in over 50 countries. Today MoleMax is worldwide accepted clinical standard in digital epiluminescence microscopy.
