Advanced ID Receives $135,000 RFID Microchip Order

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 4, 2005) - Advanced ID Corporation
(OTCBB:AIDO), a complete solutions provider in the radio frequency
identification (RFID) market, today announced it has received an order
from the Government of Newfoundland and the University of Prince Edward
Island to utilize the company's RFID microchips for the identification
of fish in Atlantic Canada. The order which is valued at more than
$135,000 will require Advanced ID to immediately begin delivering its
RFID microchips, readers and accessories.

Barry Bennett, President and CEO of Advanced ID Corporation stated, "We
are continuing to see significant growth in the use of RFID microchips
for the identification of animals, the benefits of which far exceed any
other form of identification and trace back. This contract further
strengthens our position as the top supplier of RFID microchips in
Canada."

Bennett further commented, "With regard to our progress in Thailand,
contract negotiations will resume immediately after their election which
is slated for February 13, 2005. Despite this delay, the successful
demonstration of our identification and trace back system for Thailand's
poultry industry has created opportunities with other Asian countries
inflicted with bird flu. We have recently begun acting on these
opportunities and expect to provide updates on our developments in the
months ahead."

In other developments, Advanced ID, in conjunction with its distribution
partner in Argentina, has established manufacturing capabilities in
Argentina for local production of its DataTRAC™ RFID livestock tags.
The RFID tags will be distributed throughout Paraguay, Uruguay and
Argentina. Advanced ID also recently met again with government officials
in Brazil who are conducting a formal evaluation of Advanced ID's
DataTRAC™ RFID tags, readers and its livestock trace back management
system as a solution for cattle identification. In Australia, Advanced
ID recently shipped its newly designed sheep tags for a field trial at
one of Australia's largest sheep processing plants. Upon conclusion of
the trial, the company will meet with government and industry officials
to seek approval of Advanced ID's identification and trace back
technology for Australia's sheep industry.
