Companies to cross market PositiveID’s biological detection and diagnostic solutions with DirectView’s video surveillance and body worn camera technologies
DELRAY BEACH, Florida, June 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or “Company”) (OTCQB: PSID), a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions, announced today that it has entered a co-marketing agreement with DirectView Security Systems, Inc. (“DirectView”) (OTC: DIRV), a provider of video surveillance systems including body worn cameras, to jointly market the companies’ products to homeland security and first responders.
PositiveID develops molecular diagnostic systems, including Firefly Dx, which is designed to provide real-time, accurate diagnostic results in a handheld device, thereby leading to treatment scenarios at the point of need that are not possible with existing systems, which require lab-based equipment and can take hours or even days to provide results. Firefly’s applications for first responders include point-of-need, lab-quality detection of pathogenic organisms and detection of biological agents associated with weapons of mass destruction.
DirectView provides, among other products and services, body worn cameras, video storage servers, digital video recorders, and network video recorders, to address the needs of first responders.
“We are excited to enter into this co-marketing agreement with DirectView to include video surveillance solutions and body worn cameras to our line of first responder products,” stated William J. Caragol, Chairman and CEO of PositiveID. “Through collaborating with companies like DirectView we accomplish two important goals: adding synergistic products and leveraging the sales channels of both companies to maximize our efforts and achieve better results.”
