Toronto, CANADA and Atlantic Beach, USA – (April 1, 2020) MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging for real-time detection of bacteria in wounds, announces its Sponsorship and participation in the Virtual Exhibit of its MolecuLight i:X®Platform at WoundCon™ Spring 2020. The virtual digital conference (www.woundcon.com) will be held on April 2, 2020 and has become the largest conference for wound care, with over 10,000 wound care professionals registered for the
1-day clinical conference and virtual exhibition.
“We are proud to be supporting WoundCon Spring 2020 and are thrilled with the unprecedented attendance of wound care professionals registered to attend the scientific sessions, as well as the virtual exhibits, where we will be profiling our MolecuLight i:X platform”, says Anil Amlani, MolecuLight’s CEO. “Given the COVID-19 challenges that are restricting travel and public meetings, as well as the limited time available to medical professionals for conference learning and sharing, WoundCon is an excellent alternative to support global collaboration of best practices and novel technologies in wound care”.
As Silver Sponsors of the event, MolecuLight is providing educational support for two talks as part of the scientific program – “The Four Ws of Wound Management – Who, What, When, and Why of Choosing Therapeutic Interventions” and “Key Wound Infection Management Strategies”.

“MolecuLight’s novel diagnostic imaging platform represents a major paradigm shift in wound care diagnosis and point-of-care imaging and is of real interest to our wound care audience, “says Miranda J. Henry, Editorial Director of WoundSource® (Kestrel Health Information is the publisher of WoundSource and is also the producer of WoundCon Spring 2020). “WoundCon is the first ever virtual wound care conference and expo and we are thrilled to have MolecuLight both as a premier Silver Industry Partner and as a participant with their dynamic virtual trade show booth in our exhibit hall”.
