DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PositiveID Corporation ("PositiveID" or "Company") (OTCBB:PSID), an emerging growth company and developer of advanced technologies for diabetes management as well as sophisticated airborne bio-threat detection systems for America's homeland defense, today announced significant progress with the initial deployment of its FDA-cleared iglucose™ mobile health system for diabetes management. The iglucose System is currently being trialed by a leading health insurer, a large consumer healthcare products company and an international telecommunications provider. The Company also recently announced the use of iglucose in a trial with a leading global pharmaceutical company.
PositiveID's FDA-cleared iglucose System is a convenient and easy-to-use wireless solution designed to empower individuals with diabetes to become more engaged in the self-management of their condition. iglucose seamlessly communicates blood glucose data from glucometers to the iglucose diabetes management portal, where reports are generated and can be shared with family members and healthcare professionals, making it possible to improve care in a cost-effective manner. The iglucose system communicates according to the user's preferences via online access, email, fax or SMS text. iglucose eliminates the burden of keeping logbooks and enables individuals with diabetes to proactively take control of their
glucose levels and treatment regimens. iglucose does not require the use of a cell phone or a wireless plan.
"Many large organizations are currently trialing iglucose, from one of the largest health insurers in the U.S., to one of the largest consumer healthcare products companies in the world," stated William J. Caragol, PositiveID's Chairman and CEO. "We are providing this progress report following our announcement last week that we made iglucose available for pre-order for consumers. We received a very positive response and therefore want to update the investor community as well as those with diabetes about our next steps."
The iglucose system collects and transmits stored data from a variety of FDA-cleared blood glucose meters such as Johnson & Johnson LifeScan®, Abbott FreeStyle®, Bayer Contour ®, and Nipro Diagnostic™ True™ monitoring systems to a secure database via wireless cellular technology. PositiveID is continually adding to this list of supported glucose meters. For more information on iglucose, visit www.iglucose.com.
