Barco Healthcare partners with Delasco to bring its skin imaging platform, Demetra, to the United States

Atlanta, Georgia, 5 November 2020 – Barco, the leader in healthcare display solutions, announced today a partnership with Delasco, a leading manufacturer and distributor of dermatology supplies and equipment, to expand the award-winning dermatology technology, Demetra, to the United States. As a trusted supplier to more than 7,000 dermatology care providers, Delasco is the ideal partner to bring Demetra to America and provide best-in-class diagnostic capabilities to the dermatological community.

Co-developed with dermatologists, the Demetra solution combines the best of analogue and digital skin imaging to allow dermatologists to take dermoscopic as well as clinical images and make mapping, follow-up and comparison of skin lesions smoother and smarter. The solution’s innovative technology and unique design represent the next generation of dermoscopy. With an estimated one in five Americans diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime, Demetra will help health systems move toward more preventative models of care.

“Barco has committed years of research and development into the Demetra solution and we are proud to bring this smart, intuitive and cost-effective dermatological solution to the United States,” said Peter Kinhan, Vice President of Demetra. “Demetra brings the opportunity to improve patient care in the U.S. by providing visualizations and insights that support the clinician’s decision on management strategies, diagnosis, treatments and follow-ups with their patients.”

After several years of research and product development, Demetra was rolled out in pilot markets Belgium and Germany and granted FDA clearance in December 2019. In the development of Demetra, Barco and Delasco were committed to ensuring that the solution provided best-in-class innovations pertaining to advanced imaging, helping give clinicians the ability to provide accurate diagnoses and improve clinical workflow. As Barco and Delasco bring the technology to the U.S. market, the Demetra team continues to develop its research pipeline, including new functionalities in imaging, workflow and Artificial Intelligence, in line with its plan to deliver more added value to the solution and its user base. As a result, end-users can derive maximum value from the solution and improve patient care.

“For 40 years, Delasco has brought outstanding support and service to dermatologists,” said Cara Skowronski, President, Delasco. “We are committed to providing dermatology professionals with exciting solutions to enable better health outcomes, and Barco’s innovative technology is the next step in shaping the future of dermatology.”
