Toronto, ONTARIO and Las Vegas, NEVADA– (October 28, 2021) MolecuLight Inc., a provider of in point-of-care fluorescence imaging for the detection of wounds that contain elevated bacterial loads, announces the presentation of 7 clinical posters and presentations at the Symposium of Wound Care (SAWC) Fall 2021, held from October 29 – 31, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We are thrilled to have so many customers presenting their impressive clinical findings at this year’s SAWC Fall conference”, says Anil Amlani, MolecuLight’s CEO. "The clinical topics being presented span the wound care continuum, from improved wound assessment and treatment planning, to monitoring of wound cleaning and debridement efficacy, and the resulting improvement in wound healing rates. Presenters will also describe detection and treatment of wound-related cellulitis, and findings from the recently published Delphi consensus-based guidelines for the use of the MolecuLight platform. The outcomes presented in these studies illustrate the significant clinical improvements to wound care provided to clinicians by the MolecuLight i:X.”

A submission on MolecuLight by Dr. Charles A. Andersen was one of the top scoring abstracts out of more than 200 submissions. This is the fifth consecutive SAWC meeting at which an abstract on improved patient care achieved through use of the MolecuLight i:X has received this honour.

The 5 clinical posters and 2 presentations featuring the MolecuLight i:X from SAWC Fall 2021 are as follows:
