Micro Identification Technologies  (MMTC) Announces Business Update Webinar


9/27/2010 9:06:16 AM

SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwire - September 27, 2010) - Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: MMTC), a California-based public company and creator of an advanced rapid microbial identification system, announced today that it will host a 30 minute Webinar on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 1:00 pm (PDT). The objective of the Webinar is to provide a general Business Update to current and prospective customers and investors. John Ricardi, MIT's Executive Vice President, will give the presentation that will be followed by an open question and answer session with MIT's staff including its Chairman and CEO, Michael Brennan.

If you are having trouble registering or would like more information, please contact the Company at info@micro-identification.com.

About Micro Identification Technologies:

MIT has developed, patented and produces a rapid microbial identification (ID) System that revolutionizes the bacteria ID process and can annually save thousands of lives and tens of millions of healthcare dollars. The MIT 1000 System identifies bacteria in minutes, not days, and at significant cost per test savings when compared to any conventional method -- it is not reliant on chemical or biological agents, conventional processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis -- requiring only clean water and a sample of the unknown bacteria. Revenues for all rapid testing methods exceed $5 billion annually -- with food safety accounting for over $3 billion -- having expanded at a rate of 9.2 percent annually since 1998. Current growth projections are at 10.2 percent annually reaching $6.2 billion by 2013 and driven by major health, safety and homeland security issues.

The MIT 1000 System can identify bacteria in less than five minutes after culturing at a cost of less than 10 cents per test and is a certified AOAC Research Institute (RI) test method of Listeria, one of three bacteria (the others are Salmonella and E.coli) that are responsible for most of the worldwide food contamination events. The Company is in the process of preparing the MIT 1000 System to become AOAC RI certified later this year for the presence of all "three" bacteria with a single mouse click. The AOAC RI Report and Certification are available from the Company. www.aoac.org

Further, MIT has demonstrated the ability to detect and identify, within several minutes, the microbes Escherichia coli, Listeria, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA and other pathogenic bacteria. MIT recently performed over 300 tests for the identification of these contaminants and scored 95 percent in accuracy. The System's database currently enables the identification of over twenty species of bacteria and is easily expandable. This identification process has also been verified by North American Science Associates, Inc. (NAMSA), an independent, internationally recognized bioscience testing laboratory. The NAMSA Test Report is available from the Company and, in MIT's opinion, documents the accuracy, speed and cost effectiveness of the MIT System over conventional processes. www.namsa.com
