PositiveID, Simplex Healthcare Sign Agreement for iglucose

PositiveID Corporation recently announced it will provide iglucose System for diabetes management for members of Simplex Healthcare Inc., the parent company of the third-largest mail order supplier of diabetic testing supplies, Diabetes Care Club, LLC.

PositiveID is an emerging growth company and developer of advanced technologies for diabetes management and sophisticated airborne bio-threat detection systems for America's homeland defense.

iglucose provides a breakthrough in diabetes management by automatically and wirelessly communicating blood glucose readings and creating logbooks and trend reports without the need for a mobile phone or manual entry. At the user’s consent, data stored in the iglucose diabetes management portal can be shared automatically with family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals via text message, e-mail or fax.

The iglucose device uses mobile technology to seamlessly communicate blood glucose readings from industry-leading glucose meters to the iglucose diabetes management portal where electronic logbooks and trend reports are automatically created.

"We are very pleased to be working with Simplex, a leader in the diabetic testing supply market,” said William J. Caragol, chairman and CEO at PositiveID. “As a leader in this space, Simplex has a strong knowledge of what people with diabetes need to improve their self-management for better outcomes, which we believe is an important testimonial on the value proposition of iglucose."
