The surgical sleeve precludes a deep cleaning/disinfection of the MolecuLight i:X between patients.
The surgical sleeve protects the i:X during procedures which produce airborne particles.
The i:X Sterile Surgical Sleeve comes as part of a Convenience Kit that
includes the following one-time use, disposable items:
- a sterile sleeve (to maintain a barrier between the i:X device and the patient),
- a non-sterile adhesive adapter (to adhere the sleeve to the i:X for optimal imaging),
- a sterile paper ruler (to enable clinicians to achieve appropriate distance between the i:X and the wound) since the i:X rangefinder does not operate through the sleeve, and
- MolecuLight Instructions for Use (to clearly explain how to assemble and use the i:X Sterile Sleeve for standard and fluorescence imaging of wounds in a sterile field)
Please consult the i:X User Manual for additional detailed instructions on proper assembly of the sleeve.
