Known as The Aura, the device will be commercialized by local spin-off firm Verisante and can be used by any health professional to detect skin cancer instead of a qualified dermatologist.

The company said that the Aura will be able to provide an early diagnosis of skin cancer and will help reduce the waiting times, thereby increasing the number of people that can be screened.
