CALGARY, AB -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 18, 2006 -- The Advanced ID (OTC BB: AIDO) "ISO" pet identification microchip receives compliance approval by National Companion Animal Coalition (NCAC). The coalition includes The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, Canadian Kennel Club, Canadian Veterinary Association, and Pet Industry Joint Advisory Counsel of Canada.

Advanced ID now has registered their companion animal business as "Advanced Pet ID, The Pet Microchip Company." According to Dan Finch, President & CEO of Advanced ID, "We are leading the pet microchip identification industry in Canada with both our 'ISO' tags as well as our standard tags. Advanced ID is the largest single supplier of pet microchip identification and recovery in Canada. We support an 'ISO' compliant global pet RFID system for optimal recovery. We have had several negotiations requesting partnerships with leading pet-related businesses, veterinary care groups, and pet insurance groups to enhance pet recovery in Canada. The Advanced Pet ID recovery network is Canada's largest pet recovery database with over 850,000 families listed. Our goal is to partner with and provide an easier process for veterinary clinics, hospitals, shelters, animal control officers, police and humane groups to access information. Our company realized positive growth in 2005 and we see a continued central focus on our pet recovery business. Our goal is to achieve a 100% increase in revenue in this division alone over the next 12 months through partnerships and 'ISO' implementation. As previously announced Advanced ID was chosen for the Guangdong Province of China ISO microchip program. China has a dog population of 120,000,000 and is requiring ISO standards throughout the province. Advanced ID is also working with our New Zealand and Argentina distributors for companion pet-related projects in those countries. We anticipate excellent global growth in our low frequency companion animal business."
