DELRAY BEACH, Fla., June 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTC:PSID), a life sciences company focused on detection and diagnostics, announced today that its Thermomedics subsidiary will exhibit the ® non-contact thermometer at the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) 2018 from June 13-15th at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Caregiver, FDA cleared for , is a professional grade, infrared thermometer that measures forehead temperature in adults, children, and infants, without contact. It delivers an oral-equivalent temperature directly from the forehead in one to two seconds without ever touching the patient.

Infectious diseases like Ebola, , and others that can be spread from skin-to-skin contact stress the need to utilize thermometers and other medical devices that do not touch the patient thereby minimizing cross-contamination.

Since Caregiver does not touch the patient’s skin, it reduces the risk of cross-contamination and saves healthcare facilities the cost of probe covers (up 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 available with and without Bluetooth® functionality.  

APIC’s Annual Conference is the premier forum for infection prevention and epidemiology professionals who want to learn about the latest research, science, and real-world solutions to challenging infection prevention issues. PositiveID’s Thermomedics is exhibiting at the APIC conference to increase exposure and awareness for Caregiver and generate qualified leads for its national network of distributors.
