Biotech Medical Stock News: PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB:PSID) Obtains Certification from AT&T for iglucose Mobile Health System for Individuals with Diabetes

DELRAY BEACH, FL - January 30, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Medical Stock Alert; PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID), a developer of medical technologies for diabetes management, announced today it has obtained certification from AT&T for PositiveID's iglucose™ mobile health system, designed to simplify diabetes management for the millions of individuals impacted by this growing disease. This certification gives PositiveID's FDA-cleared iglucose system access to the AT&T network, which has the largest global presence of any U.S.-based wireless provider.
iglucose is the first and only pocket sized, FDA cleared, mobile health device specifically designed to connect to industry leading glucometers to transmit blood glucose readings anytime, anywhere. By seamlessly communicating glucose readings from a glucometer to the iglucose diabetes management portal, this important data can be shared with family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals via text message, email or fax, or through the iglucose diabetes management portal itself. iglucose makes it easier for individuals with diabetes to manage their disease and provides healthcare professionals with better data that can be used to improve clinical insight and treatment decisions.
Laboratory testing for the iglucose device was conducted in AT&T's wireless device testing laboratory. During certification, AT&T subjects each device to a series of rigorous tests to ensure the operational reliability of each unit as well as its ability to function flawlessly across the entire AT&T wireless network. iglucose is specifically designed for mobile monitoring, which helped to ensure optimum performance of the device during testing.
While medical devices for home monitoring have existed for many years, the devices are typically large, expensive and not targeted solely for the diabetes population. iglucose was designed with the end user in mind; the iglucose device fits easily into the pouch individuals with diabetes typically carry containing their blood glucose meter and test strips. Furthermore, because iglucose does not require a phone line or internet connection, its portability and compact size mean it can be used anywhere, anytime.
The iglucose system is compatible with market-leading glucometers such as Johnson & Johnson LifeScan®, Nipro Diagnostic™ True™, Abbott Freestyle®, and Bayer Breeze® and Contour® meters.
PositiveID Chairman and CEO William J. Caragol, said, "AT&T certification, which is not easily achieved, is an important confirmation of the performance and dependability of iglucose . As we continue to prepare to roll-out this mobile health system early this year through pilot programs with insurers and home-healthcare providers, AT&T certification provides us significant validation upon which our customers and partners can rely."
More than 25 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes, or over eight percent of the population, according to the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet . The CDC predicts that nearly 30 percent of children born after the year 2000 will develop diabetes. The lifetime risk of developing diabetes for those born in the year 2000 is 35 percent. The total cost of diagnosed diabetes in the U.S. is estimated at $200 billion.

Some of Dr. Schmid-Schonbein's early research discoveries involved the behavior of infection-fighting white blood cells. Using engineering techniques, he made the first determination of the force with which white blood cells adhere to the walls of blood vessels as part of the initial process of inflammation. Later, Dr. Schmid-Schonbein concluded that the survival of an acutely ill patient can hinge on the degree to which white blood cells are activated. Recently his group discovered a mechanism that leads to activation of white blood cells, which is due to digestive enzymes and may cause cardiovascular disease. Among his many distinctions, Dr. Schmid-Schonbein is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the American Heart Association. He is a founding fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and winner of the Melville Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineering.
