PositiveID’s Caregiver Non-Contact Thermometer Exceeds Industry Laboratory Standards and Shows High Level of Agreement in Pediatric Study

Caregiver non-contact thermometer proven accurate and reliable in pediatric populations

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTCQB:PSID), a life sciences company focused on detection and diagnostics, announced today that its Caregiver® non-contact, infrared thermometer exceeds industry laboratory standards for accuracy and showed a high level of agreement in a pediatric study. Caregiver, which uses TouchFree™ technology, eliminates the need to take oral or rectal temperatures, thus improving ease of use and patient comfort.

In a one-year pediatric validation study, temperature measurements were obtained with an oral predictive thermometer and the Caregiver thermometer. This validation study indicates a high level of agreement between the Caregiver and a calibrated oral predictive reference device thermometer, thus assuring accurate and reliable readings in children and adolescents age 0 to 18 years old.

Marketed by PositiveID’s Thermomedics subsidiary, Caregiver, which is FDA cleared for clinical use, is a professional grade, infrared thermometer for measurement of forehead temperature in adults, children, and infants, without contact. It delivers an oral-equivalent temperature directly from the forehead in one to two seconds. Since there is no skin contact and Caregiver does not require probe cover supplies, it reduces the risk of cross-contamination, which is an increasing concern, and saves healthcare facilities the cost of covers (as much as $0.05 to $0.10 per temperature), storage space, and waste disposal costs. It is estimated that Caregiver can offer savings of $250 or more per year per device in probe cover supplies alone.

“Caregiver is not only easier to use than most common thermometry devices, it is proven to be just as accurate and reliable,” stated William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID. “We believe it also offers an improved patient experience since it is completely non-invasive, which is particularly important in pediatric populations.”
