The 'MolecuLight i:X' is a handheld device that makes it easy for medical professionals to instantly, safely and easily scan a wound for infectious bacteria. Even physicians who have been trained to detect what ails a patient can sometimes find it difficult to pinpoint the precise treatment that will help to heal a patient, but the MolecuLight i:X is an innovative imaging tool that has the potential to accelerate the healing process.

With this imaging tool, clinicians are able to easily see bacteria by having it glow in the dark. The tool is also useful for measuring wounds and monitoring a treatment over time. As part of a clinical trial conducted in Toronto, it was determined that the use of device can help wounds to heal up to nine times faster as compared to standard treatments.
