PositiveID CEO Details New Distribution Agreement with Leading Non-Invasive Patient Monitoring Technology Company
Agreement for new Bluetooth thermometer and other topics discussed in interview with CEOLIVE.TV
DELRAY BEACH, Fla., June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PositiveID Corporation (the “Company”) (OTC:PSID), a life sciences company focused on detection and diagnostics, announced today a new interview with Chairman and CEO William J. Caragol that details the Company’s private label distribution agreement, announced June 18th, with a global leader in non-invasive patient monitoring systems.
The Interview may be viewed here.
In the interview, Caragol describes the Company’s development of the latest version of the Caregiver® non-contact thermometer and its expected impact on the Company’s medical device business.
The Caregiver thermometer is the world’s first non-contact device with TouchFree™ technology developed by the inventors of tympanic thermometry.
Caragol also provides an update on the Company’s other initiatives year-to-date, including its FireflyDX, real-time PCR breadboard prototype pathogen detection system.
The FireflyDX family of products is being developed in both portable and handheld forms to provide accurate, rapid pathogen detection using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in less than 30 minutes, with minimally trained personnel and at a lower cost than existing systems.
Current solutions for accurately identifying potential pathogens and bio-threats, especially at the point of care (POC), can sometimes take as long as several days to provide results, dramatically delaying what is often life-saving treatment or quarantine measures.
