Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced that the DZ-D100 Dermatology Camera and DZ-S50 Dermatology Scope conformity studies for European Medical Device Regulations (MDR) have been completed and the company has issued its EU Declaration of Conformity. The DZ-D100 and DZ-S50 will launch in Europe in August and are scheduled to be sold by Casio Europe GmbH (Norderstedt, Germany) and Casio Electronics Co. Ltd. (Wembley, UK).
In Japan, sales of the DZ-D100, a dermatology camera that enables both standard and close-up photography of affected areas of skin, and the D’z IMAGE Viewer, free PC software that facilitates management of the captured images, launched in May 2019. In March 2020, Casio launched the DZ-S50, a lightweight dermatology scope that facilitates observation of larger areas of skin. Casio is also marketing its products in three other countries—the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand—as part of its efforts to further strengthen its business outside of Japan.
With the EU Declaration of Conformity, the DZ-D100 and DZ-S50 may display the CE mark to indicate that these products meet EU conformity laws and regulations. Having secured this certification, sales in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK and other European countries will launch in August.
Adding sales in Europe to those in the U.S. and Oceania, Casio is expanding its medical business and contributing to dermatological care around the world.
