Debridement/Wound Hygiene

24% of VLU periwound area was colonized by high bacterial loads pre-debridement

99% reduction of bacterial signal in the wound bed after debridement using fluorescence guidance

36% of periwound bacterial signal is left behind after standard debridement in VLUs (without
the guidance of fluorescence)

The MolecuLight i:X aided clinicians in their management of wound infections

This was done through image informed debridement/treatment response monitoring to debridement & other wound therapies

Bacterial presence or absence based on fluorescence images correlated with swab results in all cases
