MIT to Conduct a Webinar Demonstrating the Ease of Use and Efficiency of Its Bacteria Identifying MIT 1000 System

Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. will conduct a Webinar later this month on the operation of the MIT 1000 Rapid Microbial Identification System. The objective of the Webinar is to demonstrate the speed and operational simplicity of performing bacteria identification (ID) tests using the MIT 1000 System and to give a brief education on the non-biological light scattering technology that is used to obtain an ID. The Webinar will be conducted by MIT's Chief Technical Officer, Dr. David Haavig and will be open to all of those interested in learning more about the Company's System. "Using our patented light scattering technology for this application only became economically feasible with the creation of high speed personal computers that are needed to compile and analyze the vast amount of data collected in the ID process.

The Webinar will highlight our unique ability to conduct an ID test in less than 5 minutes at a cost of 10 cents per test. These attributes position MIT to contribute significantly to the fight against widespread food contamination events," stated Michael Brennan, MIT's Chairman and CEO. MIT has demonstrated the ability to detect and identify, within several minutes, the microbes Escherichia coli, Listeria, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, and other pathogenic bacteria. MIT has performed over 300 tests for the identification of the aforementioned contaminants and scored 95% accuracy. The System can currently identify 23 species of bacteria and is easily expandable. The identification process has been verified by North American Science Associates, Inc. (NAMSA), an independent, internationally recognized biological testing laboratory.
