Medical Technology Stock Q&A with Decision Diagnostics (OTCBB: DECN)

New York, New York, Point Roberts, WA - November 28, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors issues an exclusive Q&A interview with Mr. Keith Berman , President and CFO of Decision Diagnostics Corp. (OTCBB: DECN). Mr.Berman discusses the market and opportunity for its lead product, GenStrip® Blood Glucose Test Strips.

Q: Investorideas.com
Keith for investors that aren't familiar with your company, can you give a brief outline of your lead product and what differentiates GenStrip® Blood Glucose Test Strips from its competitors?
A: Mr. Keith Berman, President and CFO
Our Shasta Genstrip product is an at-home diagnostic product for the testing of blood glucose. Genstrip is designed specifically to run on the venerable family of Johnson+Johnson's Lifescan family of meters. This family of meters is in use by over 5 million diabetics worldwide.
At home diagnostic testing is a fast growing market, currently used to monitor blood glucose, primarily as a result of modern society lifestyle issues, and is the most important aid in the fight against spread of diabetes. Genstrip is the first product to reach the market in almost a decade as an alternative to brand name diagnostic products. Since its predecessor generic test strips were sold in the late 1990s, the market for at-home testing has grown 20-fold.
Q: Investorideas.com
A report from MarketResearch.com recently noted - Although the blood glucose testing segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry is mature, certain segments of the market, such as home testing devices for diabetes management, will exhibit strong growth . Can you give investors insight as to the size of the market and opportunity?
A: Mr. Keith Berman, President and CFO
At home glucose testing is the fastest growth segment of personal health management. The personal diabetes meter has matured to become another must-have, must-need, home appliance. While at-home testing is not a new market, my father for instance tested his glucose levels using at-home urine test strips in the 1970s, the last decade has seen explosive growth in monitoring diagnostic products The market for at-home blood glucose testing reached $1 billion per year for the first time in 2000. By 2017 the market is expected to reach $32 billion worldwide. A rule of thumb is that the U.S. and Canada account for one-half of the market, the rest of the world the other half.
Q: Investorideas.com
According to your SEC filings the Company is underway with the FDA approval process for GenStrip®. Can you give us a brief outline of the history and the process for approval?
A: Mr. Keith Berman, President and CFO
Shasta Genstrip, like all at-home diagnostic products require approval of the U.S. FDA. The process that Genstrip traveled through, called Substantial Equivalency Review ("SE"), was first put in place in the mid-1970s as a way to speed up the regulatory process. Over the last three decades this "speedy" process has morphed into something never envisioned by the U.S. Congress when these laws and regulations were first passed with near unanimous support. Approvals now take in excess of two years. The SE 510k application was filed in early December 2010.
Q: Investorideas.com
If and when the Company does receive FDA approval what is the timeline for distribution into the sales channels? And how would this typically roll out?
A: Mr. Keith Berman, President and CFO
We have had plenty of time to ready ourselves for the ultimate FDA approval of Genstrip. Because of its unique design all of the potential Genstrip customers already make use daily of original manufacturer's platform. Our potential customer base is well known, well studied, and by new product standards, very large.
By law the company could not take orders for Genstrip until there was/is an approval from FDA, but since February 2011 we have been allowed to do some demonstration projects to collect data etc. We used this time to familiarize the market with the upcoming product through the company's normal and historical distribution channels. We secured a supplier contract with Walmart Stores in an incredible 35 days. We have accepted, as a part of our overall responsibilities, working with the Genstrip manufacturer to make product forecasts. We readied the Genstrip Value Proposition. And, it has not hurt that all of the potential consumers of Genstrip have used the predecessor product for, in some cases, almost a decade.

Medical Technology Stock Decision Diagnostics (OTCBB: DECN) Lead Product Shasta Genstrip Positions for at-home testing of Blood Glucose Market

New York, New York, Point Roberts, WA - November 21, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors issues an investor alert for Decision Diagnostics Corp. (OTCBB: DECN) for investors following medical technology stocks . The Company's lead product, Shasta Genstrip, is currently in the FDA approval process for at-home testing of blood glucose, currently estimated at $22.5 Billion Worldwide.

According to MarketResearch.com "There has been a dramatic increase in the incidence of diabetes worldwide, which has been exacerbated by the growing obesity problem across the globe. Once thought of as primarily a childhood disease--sometimes referred to as juvenile diabetes, now mostly Type 1 diabetes--the obesity crisis linked to the adoption of a high-fat, high-carbohydrate, high-calorie American diet has resulted in skyrocketing rates of diabetes, particularly Type 2 diabetes, among adults across the world. As such, the global market for blood glucose testing products is undergoing a significant transition driven by the advent of new analytical technologies and developments in diabetes treatment. Although the blood glucose testing segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry is mature, certain segments of the market, such as home testing devices for diabetes management, will exhibit strong growth.”

Medical Diagnostic Stock Alert: Decision Diagnostics (OTCBB: DECN) Aims at home testing of blood glucose market with lead product, Shasta Genstrip

New York, New York, Point Roberts, WA - November 19, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors, including Medical Diagnostic stocks, issues an investor snapshot for Decision Diagnostics Corp. (OTCBB: DECN). The Company’s lead product, Shasta Genstrip, is currently in the FDA approval process for at-home testing of blood glucose.

Excerpt from Aug-2012 Quarterly Report
Decision Diagnostics Corp. (OTCBB: DECN) is the parent company of a nationwide prescription and non-prescription diagnostics and home testing products distribution business. The U.S. FDA, in a manner similar to prescription drugs, regulates diagnostic test kits and at-home patient testing products similarly to the regulation of prescription medicine. However, the products we distribute, for the most part, do not require a doctor's prescription for anything other than insurance benefit compliance. Our business model works well in this regulated environment.
We have also continued to ready the company, subject to receipt of an expected FDA 510(k) approval, to introduce a proprietary diagnostic product, the Shasta Genstrip, for at-home testing of blood glucose, an estimated $22.5 billion worldwide market. Shasta Genstrip will compete directly with one of the largest worldwide platform manufacturer for at-home blood glucose testing, a product currently used daily by over 3 million diabetes afflicted Americans. In anticipation of the introduction of Genstrip, currently in the FDA approval process, we have phased out sales of those brand name products that have been a backbone of our current distribution business but will, in the future, would have us compete directly with our Shasta Genstrip product.
Typically, and except for our Shasta Genstrip product, which is an alternative product, we distribute name brand products manufactured primarily by large U.S. and international pharmaceutical companies. The company directs its marketing efforts to ambulatory and semi-ambulatory older Americans afflicted with diabetes and complications caused by diabetes and old age. The company, originally a medical IT company with proprietary IT product lines, acquired its medical products distribution business in late 2004 through a merger with Phoenix, Arizona based CareGeneration, Inc. We have grown the original CareGeneration business through subsequent acquisitions of private businesses and strategic partnerships with larger private pharmacies.
In March 2012 and then again September 2012 representatives of the company and Shasta Technologies LLC met face-to-face with the FDA to ask questions and respond to FDA comments and to present its case in an effort to complete the FDA review process. Subsequently Shasta Technologies LLC and the company have received and responded to a short series of follow up questions and comments by FDA.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - November 6, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire, www.biodefensestocks.com) PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID) ("PositiveID" or "Company"), an emerging growth company and developer of airborne bio-threat detection systems for America's homeland defense industry as well as advanced technologies for diabetes management and rapid medical testing, today announced it has signed a Teaming Agreement ("Teaming Agreement") with Science Applications International Corporation ("SAIC") (SAI) to pursue the Defense Threat Reduction Agency ("DTRA") Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity ("IDIQ") Multiple Award Contracts supporting the Weapons of Mass Destruction ("WMD") - Defeat Technology, Arms Control, and Nuclear Technology Electromagnetic Research and Development/ Survivability and Infrastructure programs.

The Teaming Agreement pairs SAIC's system engineering and integration capabilities with PositiveID's bio-threat detection technologies. PositiveID will offer both its Dragonfly(TM) Rapid MD-x Cartridge-based diagnostic system ("Dragonfly") as well as its M-BAND (Microfluidics-based Bioagent Networked Detector) airborne bio-threat detector as part of the Teaming Agreement.
PositiveID's Dragonfly system is designed to deliver molecular diagnostic results from a sample in less than 30 minutes, which would enable accurate diagnostics leading to potential treatment scenarios at the point of care that are not possible with existing systems. Dragonfly is being developed further for a broad range of biological detection situations including radiation-induced cell damage within the human body, strains of influenza and other common pathogens and diseases such as E. coli, methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus ("MRSA") and human papilloma virus ("HPV").
PositiveID's M-BAND, developed under contract for the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Division, is a bioaerosol monitor with fully integrated systems with sample collection, processing and detection modules that continuously analyze air samples for the detection of bacteria, viruses, and toxins with results in as little as two hours. 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 for fielded instruments in the aggregate.
William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID, stated, "We are very pleased to team with SAIC through this agreement, and demonstrate the value and capabilities of our Dragonfly and M-BAND technologies."
