12 Posters and Presentations Featuring MolecuLight to be Presented at the SAWC Fall 2023 Conference

Unprecedented Body of New Clinical Evidence using the MolecuLight Wound Imaging Platform Demonstrates Improved Clinical Decision-Making and Patient Outcomes

Toronto, CANADA and Las Vegas, NEVADA – (November 2, 2023) MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging for real-time detection of elevated bacterial loads in wounds, announces that MolecuLight data will be presented in 12 clinical posters and presentations at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Fall 2023. The results to be presented include new data from recent investigations using MolecuLight device from over 1,500 patients. The international conference is being hosted from November 2 – 5, 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is one of the largest multidisciplinary meetings of wound care professionals in the world.

“We are proud to see once again abundant and consistently favorable outcomes being presented by MolecuLight imaging platform users at this week’s SAWC conference”, says Anil Amlani, CEO of MolecuLight. “The volume of our clinical evidence continues to grow and confirms that MolecuLight improves healing outcomes. Our devices inform the appropriate use of antibiotics and help empower patients during the treatment and recovery of their wounds.  We are particularly motivated by of our impactful clinical results in vulnerable patient populations that suffer from health care inequities. Our device has proven to be an equitable diagnostic tool that delivers quality results for patients of all skin tones. This sets us apart and makes us part of the solution, and we couldn’t be more proud of this.”

“Good wound hygiene is a game-changer for taking wound care to the next level and boosting those outcomes. I always say, ‘Clean it like you mean it’, but we can only clean what we can see. MolecuLight is an objective tool that, for the first time, allows providers to visualize in real-time and more effectively remove bacterial burden that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye,” says Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS, wound care nurse at Saratoga Hospital Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine in Saratoga Springs, New York and Co-Chair of the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC). Dot is speaking at a hands-on pre-conference workshop showing how MolecuLight can be used to guide and improve wound hygiene practices.We can and should do better. The MolecuLight device is evidence-backed, equitable for all patients, and is instrumental in the care of every single patient who walks through our doors. This amazing piece of hand-held technology is revolutionizing the way we clean wounds. I can’t imagine delivering the highest quality of care without it.”
