Early Detection

One in three cancers diagnosed is skin
cancer. But here’s the good news. When
skin cancer is detected early on, survival
rates are up to 99%.

Early detection saves
lives. Ask your doctor for
an AuraScan today.
Detecting skin cancer can be challenging even for the most skilled physician. Developed by a team of leading specialists, Aura can rapidly and safely aid in the detection of skin cancer when held above a suspicious mole or lesion. Even if a mole or lesion looks normal to the naked eye, an AuraScan will help your doctor identify it.
Aura is the only device that can detect all major types of skin cancer and the only device that has been developed by a government cancer agency and a leading university dermatology department.

How it Works

Quick, painless and precise, Aura
provides valuable information safely
and non-invasively in less than a second.
Now that’s something to feel good about.


An AuraScan is a painless, non-invasive test that uses state-of-the-art technology to analyze moles and lesions. By positioning the hand-held probe above the skin, a special light in the device measures subtle vibrational shifts in skin molecules.

Since molecules in cancerous lesions vibrate differently than healthy tissue, Aura can assist medical professionals in determining if there is cause for concern. Best of all, the whole process can be done quickly and easily in the privacy of your medical professional’s office.

Facts About Skin Cancer

What To Look For

  • Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and the most rapidly increasing.
  • When skin cancer is detected early, survival rates are up to 99% compared to only 15% for those with advanced stage skin cancer.
  • Early detection is key because it allows for more treatment options and higher survival rates.
  • It’s important to notice subtle changes in your skin. An easy way to remember is to follow the A, B, C, D, E of melanoma.
  • Asymmetry Any mole where one half is different than the other half.
  • Border Any mole where edges appear ragged, notched or blurred.
  • Colour Mole pigmentation is uneven with shades of tan, brown, black, white or red.
  • Diameter A mole with a diameter greater than 6mm.
  • Evolution Any mole that has gone through recent changes in colour, size or nature.
  • If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, or are concerned about changes to your skin, talk to your doctor or medical professional about an AuraScan today.

What is an AuraScan?

An AuraScan is when a medical device called Aura is used to scan suspicious lesions for the main types of skin cancer and precancerous lesions. Aura scans for Actinic Keratosis, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma.

How accurate is an AuraScan?

Based on a clinical study of Aura, an AuraScan found 99% of the skin cancers and precancerous lesions it is scanning for.

How does it work?

Aura identifies certain spectral changes associated with the biochemistry of skin cancer cells. An AuraScan will tell you if these changes in biochemistry are present in your suspicious lesion.

How is this technology different from other skin cancer detection devices?

Aura is much faster and has a higher diagnostic accuracy than any other device on the market or in development that we know of. It is the only device that was developed by a government cancer agency and leading university dermatology department and it is the only device that detects all major skin cancers.

What result do I see?

An AuraScan will tell you if the biochemistry of your lesion has high similarity or low similarity to the biochemistry of a cancerous lesion.

What can be scanned?

Most suspicious lesions greater than 3.5mm in diameter can be scanned.

Is an AuraScan painful and how long does it take?

An AuraScan is completely non-invasive and not at all painful. It takes less than a second to scan one lesion.

Does an AuraScan replace the need for a biopsy?

An AuraScan does not replace the need for a biopsy, should a medical professional recommend one. Aura is meant to be used as a tool to assist a medical professional in the decision of whether or not to perform a biopsy.
