DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 10, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTCQB:PSID), a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions, announced today that it has been selected to present a poster and exhibit at the 2015 Military Health System Research Symposium (MHSRS) Conference on August 17-20, 2015, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, FL. PositiveID will showcase its biological detection and diagnostics products, primarily its Firefly Dx, during the conference in Booth #50.
The Company’s poster, “Firefly Dx; Point-Of-Care Infectious Disease Detection and Diagnostics,” describes the development of the handheld, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics system for rapid identification of naturally occurring infectious diseases within 20 minutes. The Firefly Dx system uses assay specific, disposable cartridges in conjunction with a handheld device, and is designed to be a cost-effective diagnostic tool capable of easy and rapid onsite analysis against multiple user-defined pathogenic targets of interest.
Firefly Dx is designed to provide real-time, accurate diagnostic results in a handheld device, thereby leading to treatment scenarios at the point of need that are not possible with existing systems, which require lab-based equipment and can take hours or even days to provide results. Firefly’s applications include point-of-need, lab-quality, detection of pathogenic organisms; agricultural and food screening in both domestic sectors and developing countries; and detection of biological agents associated with weapons of mass destruction.
