PositiveID, a developer of diabetes management technologies, has received AT&T certification for its pocket sized iglucose mobile health system.

The certification provides PositiveID’s iglucose system access to the AT&T network, a US-based wireless provider.

The FDA iglucose system is designed to connect to industry leading glucometers to transmit blood glucose readings anytime, anywhere.

By communicating glucose readings from a glucometer to the iglucose diabetes management portal, this important data can be shared with family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals via text message, email or fax, or through the iglucose diabetes management portal itself.

The iglucose system is compatible with Johnson & Johnson LifeScan, Nipro Diagnostic, True, Abbott Freestyle, and Bayer Breeze and Contour meters’ glucometers.

PositiveID Chairman and CEO William Caragol said AT&T certification is an important confirmation of the performance and dependability of iglucose.

"As we continue to prepare to roll-out this mobile health system early this year through pilot programs with insurers and home-healthcare providers, AT&T certification provides us significant validation upon which our customers and partners can rely," Caragol said.
