What Are the Benefits of the Daray MAGW150 Wood's Light?

By providing clear, magnified diagnostics, the Daray MAGW150 Wood's Light makes it easy to correctly diagnose skin conditions. Its UV illumination is both clear and long-lasting, and its handheld operation is the most convenient way to assess large or awkward areas of skin. It has a choice of either a 3 or 6 dioptre magnification lens so you can pick the perfect tool for your needs.

What Are the Features of the Daray MAGW150 Ultraviolet Wood's Light?

In order to provide you with reliable and intuitive diagnostics, the MAGW150 holds the following features:

  • Ultraviolet illumination – results in colour changes in the skin for clinicians to inspect and build diagnoses from
  • Clear magnification – makes it easier to accurately determine affected areas of the skin
  • Broadly applicable – across fields including dermatology, forensic science, veterinary medicine and paediatrics
  • Lightweight and ergonomic – for the convenience and comfort of the practitioner
  • Protective lens cover – prevents the lens from becoming scratched when not in use

Is This Ultraviolet Wood's Light Easy to Use?

It is exceptionally easy to use this magnifying lens. In order to inspect skin you simply need to pull back the lens cover and switch on the UV light using the adjacent switch. Once on, the device can be held just above the skin to inspect colour changes.

How Large Is the Lens?

Measuring 110 x 75mm, the magnifying lens itself reveals a clear panel of skin without becoming over-large or unwieldy. It is the ideal size for carrying out handheld inspections of the skin.

Which Magnification Options Are Available?

This magnifying light is available in two different dioptres to suit your needs:

  • Three dioptre – which is equivalent to 1.75x magnification
  • Six dioptre – which is equivalent to 2.5x magnification

You will want to select the level of magnification carefully based off your specific clinical needs. Once you have chosen, please select from the drop-down menu at the top of this page.

What Is a Dioptre?

A dioptre is a unit used in the description of magnifying lenses. It actually refers to the curvature of the lens, with a higher value signifying a greater degree of curvature and hence a greater degree of magnification. It is not a direct measure of magnification, but of refractive capacity.

Still, each dioptre value corresponds directly to a value of magnification. The following table can be used as an approximate guide to the magnification offered by each dioptre:

Dioptre Magnification level
2 1.5x
3 1.75x
4 2x
5 2.25x
6 2.5x
7 2.75x
8 3x
9 3.25x
10 3.5x
11 3.75x
12 4x

How Is This Device Mounted?

Since it is more compact than other Daray magnifying lights, the MAGW150 does not need to be mounted on a stand. It is supplied as a handheld device to give you total freedom to assess your patient's skin without having to worry about awkward fixtures.
