MolecuLight is a medical technology company that has developed a handheld imaging device called the MolecuLightDX<supTM. The MolecuLightDX<supTM is designed to assist healthcare professionals in visualizing and assessing bacterial load in wounds.

Fluorescence Imaging Technology

The device utilizes fluorescence imaging technology to detect bacteria in wounds. When the MolecuLightDXTM is used, it emits a specific wavelength of light that causes bacteria to emit a fluorescent glow. This allows healthcare professionals to visualize the presence and distribution of bacteria within the wound, even when they may not be visible to the naked eye.

Recent Medical Advances Have Transformed Wound Care, Providing New-Found HOPE for Even Chronic Patients.

Real-Time, Non-Invasive Visualization of Bacteria

Advanced wound dressings are designed to provide an optimal environment for wound healing. They may include foam dressings, hydrocolloid dressings, alginate dressings, hydrogel dressings, or antimicrobial dressings. These dressings help manage moisture levels, facilitate autolytic debridement, protect the wound, and promote granulation tissue formation.

For Use by Healthcare Professionals

The MolecuLightDXTM is intended for use by healthcare professionals, such as wound care specialists, nurses, and clinicians, in various healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, and wound care centers. It is not intended for personal or home use.

One Tool of Many

It’s important to note that while the MolecuLightDXTM can provide valuable information regarding bacterial presence in wounds, it is just one tool in the overall assessment and management of wounds. Healthcare professionals will use a combination of clinical judgment, patient history, and other diagnostic tests in conjunction with the MolecuLightDXTM findings to develop an appropriate treatment plan for each patient.
