The MolecuLight i:X device enables healthcare professionals to see the actual accumulation of fluorescent bacteria in a wound, even when not visible to the naked eye, explains Andy Weymann, MD, chief medical officer at Smith & Nephew. It also offers guiding debridement, wound cleansing, and wound measurement, he says.

The device is currently CE-Marked and approved by Health Canada, and is available in the European Union and Canada. It is pending De Novo approval in the U.S.
