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, compared to hours or even days for a lab device, using real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) chemistry. Firefly's applications include point-of-need, lab-quality, detection of pathogenic organisms; agricultural and food screening in both domestic sectors and developing countries; and detection of biological agents associated with weapons of mass destruction.
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 for up to 30 days. 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 of field conditions. M-BAND is the only system of its kind successfully demonstrated in the field under the DHS’ BAND Program (Bio-agent Autonomous Networked Detector).
