- Fluorescence-guided sampling identifies moderate-to-heavy levels of potentially harmful bacteria where standard of care does not¹.
- Fluorescence-guided sampling provides clinicians with more accurate swabbing results than the current gold standard, therefore finding potentially harmful bacteria before the wound becomes infected².
- Fluorescence-guided treatment increases the rate of wound closure in a statistically significant manner compared with the control (non-guided) period².
- Fluorescence-guided imaging identified moderate-to-heavy levels of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) where standard of care did not¹.
- Fluorescence imaging detects wound subsurface heavy bacterial load and subclinical local infection in asymptomatic patients³.
- Fluorescence-guided imaging differentiates P.Aeruginosa from other pathogenic bacteria².
