Advanced ID Corporation Confirms Avian Flu Application in Thailand

VANCOUVER, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 --Advanced ID Corporation (OTC BB: AIDO) -- Dr. Kummalue Pongsak, Director of 4P Technology Ltd and advisor to the Dept of Agriculture in Thailand, confirmed today that the Advanced ID DataTRAC™ UHF/RFID system has been certified as the best proposal for the containment of bird flu in Thailand. "The Department of Agriculture of Thailand supervised the testing sites for both cattle and chickens which proved the effectiveness of the DataTRAC™ UHF/RFID Product and system. The proposal from Advanced ID was presented to the Minister of Agriculture as well as the Livestock Department. 4P Technology Ltd will administrate the implementation program on behalf of Advanced ID Corporation. The three-year program includes readers and tags totaling an investment of $26,000,000.00 from the Thailand Government. Advanced ID will provide the database management to include chicken coops, processing plants, checkpoints, as well as slaughter house integration. There are over 700,000,000 poultry per year processed and approximately 11,000 farms that are all included in the total requirements for this program. We have been working for several months on establishing a certified RFID identification program for livestock and feel we must also incorporate the avian flu application into our budget proposal. It is obvious that the containment of bird flu identification is of utmost urgency and the Thailand government is addressing this issue on a top priority basis. This does not curtail the importance of cattle ID, but simply means we must move very quickly on the adoption of the Advanced ID system. The implementation of the system is in final budget approval from the Department of Agriculture."
