Company Summary

MolecuLight has developed a handheld optical imaging device, PRODIGI, that uses patent pending technology to instantly detect, visualize, and analyze bacteria in wounds. Standard wound assessment is subjective through a simple eye exam, thus cannot provide accurate and timely results. Using PRODIGI, physicians can accurately assess wound infection to provide real-time image-guided diagnosis and treatment that will heal wounds faster.
