PositiveID’s FireflyDX Prototype Detects Flu Types; Chief Science Officer Explains Why Accurate Flu Detection at Point of Care Enables Smart Treatment Decisions in Interview with

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --, Inc. today announced it conducted a new audio interview with PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or the “Company”) (OTC:PSID), a life sciences company focused on detection and diagnostics, regarding the Company’s successful detection of the influenza virus on its FireflyDX real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) breadboard prototype system (“prototype system”). The interview can be heard at

In the interview, Dr. Kimothy Smith, Chief Science Officer of PositiveID and its ExcitePCR Corporation subsidiary, announced the Company’s successful detection of the influenza virus on its FireflyDX prototype system and its publication of a white paper. Smith described the limitations of current rapid influenza detection tests, and discussed how FireflyDX could enable correct diagnosis at the point of care for smart treatment decisions. PositiveID and ExcitePCR are developing FireflyDX, in both portable and handheld forms, to enable fast, accurate diagnosis at the point of care or point of need (POC/PON).

The FireflyDX family of products, currently under development, is designed to provide accurate, rapid pathogen detection using real-time PCR in less than 30 minutes, with minimally trained personnel and at a lower cost than existing systems. Current solutions for accurately identifying potential pathogens and bio-threats, especially at the POC/PON, can sometimes take as long as several hours to several days to provide results, dramatically delaying what is often life-saving treatment. Five different flu virus assays (Type A; Type B; H3N3; H7N1; and, H5N1) were tested on the FireflyDX prototype system in the lab.
