Wound Intelligence Device
The MolecuLight i:X allows clinicians to quickly, safely, and easily visualize bacteria and measure wounds at the point of care, so they have maximum insights for accurate treatment selection and accelerated healing.1,2,3
What Does MolecuLight i:X Do?
Making a Difference in Wound Care
How Does it Work?
Leveraging the principle of fluorescence, the MolecuLight i:X Wound Intelligence Device emits safe violet light which causes bacteria ≥ 104 CFU/g to fluoresce.4 The bacterial fluorescence signals detected by the device provide healthcare professionals with a visual indication of bacterial presence, load, and location within and around wounds in real-time to guide clinicians in their selection, application, and response monitoring of wound therapies.2,8,9
