PositiveID developing breath glucose-detection device

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. PositiveID announced that development of its breath glucose-detection device prototype will be completed by year's end.

The handheld Easy Check breath glucose detection device utilizes a single-use capsule containing a proprietary reagent that triggers a chemical reaction that can be measured immediately and correlated to blood-glucose levels without using blood -- required by existing glucose-measuring devices, PositiveID said.

Scott Silverman, chairman and CEO of PositiveID, said, "We are very pleased that the development and design of our noninvasive Easy Check breath glucose detection device has occurred ahead of schedule. We believe the accelerated completion of the initial design phase will potentially allow us to begin testing the handheld device during 2010."
