VeriChip Corporation ("VeriChip" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:CHIP) has announced that the Company is scheduled to be featured on the Glenn Beck show on Fox News today, October 8, 2009 during the 5 p.m. hour. Glenn Beck intends to dedicate today's show to the H1N1 virus and will feature VeriChip, its Health Link personal health record and its H1N1 virus triage detection system currently being developed with partner RECEPTORS LLC, as part of the show.

VeriChip's virus triage detection system, based on RECEPTORS' patented AFFINITY by DESIGN™ CARA™ platform, is intended to initially provide two levels of identification within minutes. Once developed, utilizing a simple test tube or strip device format that can be combined with an inexpensive reader, it is expected that the first level will prep the sample and identify the agent as a flu or non-flu virus, and the second level will sub-type (e.g. H1N1) classify the flu virus and alert the user to the presence of pandemic threat viruses.

The Glenn Beck show airs on Fox News from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. eastern time.
