DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Feb. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversified life sciences company, PositiveID Corporation (OTC:PSID), today announced the list of 2018 trade shows its wholly owned, professional-grade thermometer subsidiary Thermomedics plans to attend.
Thermomedics’ mission is to establish its Caregiver® thermometer as a healthcare standard due to the cost savings and reduced cross contamination enabled by its non-contact, plastic cover-free features. Single-use, plastic covers cost up to $.10 per unit with millions consumed in the U.S. annually.
The latest version of Caregiver is Bluetooth®-enabled allowing automatic entry of temperature readings into patient records and better patient care from improved monitoring.
“We intend to capitalize on the increasing vigilance against instrument contamination as well as improved treatment arising from medical record digitization by expanding our marketing,” commented William J. Caragol, PositiveID Chairman and CEO.
In addition to the Company’s Feb 21-23 exhibit at the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS) Conference and Exposition, Thermomedics plans to attend the following trade events in 2018:
