The MolecuLight i:X excites tissue and bacteria with violet light, causing potentially harmful bacteria to produce red fluorescence. Multi-site clinical trials* have found a 100% positive predictive value (PPV) of this red fluorescence for detecting potentially harmful bacteria in wounds, regardless of sampling technique (curettage or biopsy) or microbiological analysis method (culture or qPCR).
