About M-BAND and Firefly
PositiveID's M-BAND system, developed under contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology directorate, is a bio-aerosol monitor with fully integrated systems for sample collection, processing and detection modules that continuously analyze air samples for the detection of bacteria, viruses, and toxins. Results are reported via a secure wireless network in real time to give an accurate and up-to-date status for fielded instruments. Firefly takes the Company's patented molecular diagnostic technology underlying the M-BAND system, and implements it in a handheld device that can be used anywhere, anytime for rapid biological testing. Firefly is being designed as a portable, point-of-need molecular diagnostic system to provide test results from sample input through reporting of results in 15 to 30 minutes depending on the type of test performed.
