MolecuLight i:X

MolecuLight i:X

 Wound Imaging Device

The MolecuLight i:X allows clinicians to quickly, safely and easily visualize bacteria1 and measure wounds5 at the point of care.

Product Points

Easy icon


Portable, touch-screen with an intuitive interface.1,2

Safe icon


No contrast agents and no patient contact required.2

Precise icon


Allows for more targeted treatment protocols by knowing exactly where fluorescent bacteria are.3,4

Efficient icon


Immediately know where to sample, where to debride and/or if you need an expensive antimicrobial product.1,6,7

Real-time icon


Instantly detects and reveals location of potentially harmful levels of bacteria. Wound area is also easily calculated on the i:X5,8.

Focused icon


Allows clinicians to focus on harmful bacteria with the guidance of fluorescence imaging.1,3,4
