TORONTO, July 7, 2022 /CNW/ - MolecuLight Inc., the leader in point-of-care fluorescence imaging for real-time detection of wounds containing elevated bacterial loads, announces that it has been selected for a "Top Innovation in Wound Care 2022" Award from Wound Management & Prevention (WMP) Journal for its MolecuLightDXtm device.
WMP provides news and information for professionals in wound care, ostomy care, incontinence care, and related skin and nutritional issues, and features ground-breaking research, peer-reviewed articles, and clinical discussions on topics relevant to the field. WMP and the Wound Care Learning Network are published by HMP Global, an omnichannel leader in healthcare content, events, and education.
MolecuLightDX was selected as a winner this year for its novel utility to provide a point-of-care tool to clinicians worldwide that enables the detection of elevated bacterial burden in wounds. Based on its extensive body of evidence and interviews with clinicians using it, the MolecuLight device is changing the standard of care in wound care.
"Wound Management & Prevention is dedicated to featuring the top innovations in wound care," said Christiane Odyniec, Managing Editor. "Each July, the WMP Editorial Board nominates the newest innovations in the field of wound care, with the goal of sharing information to improve patient care. MolecuLightDX was nominated by our board for its innovation and practical applications, and we are pleased to recognize MolecuLight Inc. in this way."
As part of WoundCon Summer 2022's Technology Innovation Theatre, WMP will be hosting a webinar on "Wound Management & Prevention's Top Innovations in Products & Care of 2022" on Thursday, July 14th at 1:30 PM EST. Five of the winning products will be featured, including the MolecuLightDX.
In this webinar, Dr. Charles A. Andersen, Medical Director of the Wound Care Clinic and Limb Salvage Program at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, WA will be speaking on his experience with MolecuLight and how it is changing his clinical practice. "Using MolecuLight has revolutionized our wound care practice and now allows us to provide proactive wound care," says Dr. Andersen. "It's a game-changer."
