DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Feb. 25, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTCQB:PSID), a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions, today announced that it has launched a new corporate website at www.psidcorp.com.
PositiveID’s M-BAND (Microfluidic Bio-agent Autonomous Networked Detector) continuously and autonomously analyzes air samples for the detection of biological airborne threats in the form of bacteria, viruses, and toxins for up to 30 days. Results from individual M-BAND instruments are reported via a secure wireless network in real time to give an accurate and up-to-date status of field conditions. M-BAND is the only system of its kind successfully demonstrated in the field under the DHS’ BAND Program (Bio-agent Autonomous Networked Detector).
PositiveID’s Firefly Dx is a point-of-need, handheld system designed to deliver molecular diagnostic results from a sample in less than 20 minutes, compared to two to four hours for a lab device, using real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) chemistry. The system is a two-part device consisting of a portable handheld instrument with wireless communication and disposable single-use cartridges containing all necessary analytical elements. The system is designed to process a variety of sample types, including whole blood, buccal and nasopharyngeal swabs, urine, and environmental field samples.
