PositiveID's M-BAND (Microfluidic Bio-agent Autonomous Networked Detector) continuously and autonomously analyzes air samples for the detection of biological airborne threats in the form of bacteria, viruses, and toxins. The technology was developed under contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology directorate, which included $30 million of contract funding, to detect an attack with a biological weapon.
PositiveID's Firefly Dx is a point-of-need, handheld system designed to deliver molecular diagnostic results from a sample in less than 20 minutes at the point of need, compared to two to four hours for a lab device, using real-time TaqMan(R) PCR (polymerase chain reaction) chemistry. Firefly is being developed to meet the growing need for more rapid and accurate point-of-need diagnostics that will enable hospitals, first responders, and other providers to save lives.
