MolecuLight i: X is a hand-held non-invasive scanner that locates bacteria on the human body without contact with it. Everything happens in two stages: First, a wound is taken in high resolution and under normal light, and then a similar, but with the lights off, and when using ultraviolet illumination.
In the ultraviolet, the healthy skin looks pale green, and the bacterial colonies glow red. If two images are compared, the location and size of the population of harmful microorganisms can be determined with high accuracy. And apply the medicine point-by-point, without spending excess medicines and not affecting healthy tissues.
Clinical trials in the Toronto hospital showed that a competent doctor using the MolecuLight i: X scanner can accelerate the healing of a patient's wounds by a factor of 9-10. After all, he not only sees the bacteria, but also tracks the healing process of the wound as a whole. It is expected that the technology will be approved for use in Canadian hospitals in the near future.
