PositiveID Corporation, formerly known as VeriChip Corporation, announced recently that it has formed a new animal health division, PositiveID Animal Health, to focus on diagnostic/clinical response and source food safety products and applications.
Randolph K. Geissler, founder of Destron Fearing and former CEO of Digital Angel Corporation, has agreed to assume the role of CEO of PositiveID Animal Health. Mr. Geissler specializes in managing companies and technologies involved in the veterinary science field by selectively discovering or creating technologies and strategically introducing those assets to the markets. His vision and implementation are directly responsible for bringing the implantable microchip from “just an idea” to its successful current status of more than 80,000,000 RFID microchips implanted in animals worldwide for identification and tracking.
PositiveID Animal Health will address the growing concern of animal health through diagnostic/clinical response products, applications and test kits. It will expand PositiveID’s relationship with Receptors LLC to develop an in vivo glucose-sensing radio frequency microchip (and other sensor applications) for animals, including, but not limited to, pets and livestock.
