Kansas State University to Evaluate Advanced ID's
Technology as a Solution for Livestock Identification

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 28, 2005) - Advanced ID
Corporation (OTCBB:AIDO), a complete solutions provider in the radio
frequency identification (RFID) animal tracking and traceability market,
provided its ultra high frequency (UHF) technology to Kansas State
University's new Animal Identification Knowledge Laboratory for a formal
evaluation and comparison to low frequency (LF) technology.

In response to the U.S. livestock industry's desire to implement a
RFID-based identification and trace back system to eliminate the spread
of disease, Kansas State University initiated a research program to
assess RFID technology for livestock applications which it evaluates on
an ongoing basis as new products are released.

Along with its ongoing evaluation of current LF technology, the
Department of Animal Sciences and Industry has agreed to evaluate
Advanced ID's UHF technology through its Animal Identification Knowledge
Laboratory. The objective of its evaluation is to provide empirical data
on the viability of UHF technology, provide a comparative study on the
features and benefits of UHF and LF technology, and to educate industry
users on the efficiency of RFID for livestock identification and
traceability.

Barry Bennett, President and CEO of Advanced ID Corporation stated, "We
are very pleased to have Dr. Dale Blasi and his colleagues, the leaders
in animal RFID research among North American universities, provide an
independent evaluation of our UHF technology for livestock
identification. The real benefit of this evaluation will be to provide
industry users with an accurate understanding of the features of UHF and
LF technology."

Bennett further commented, "We continue to hear from current RFID users
in the livestock industry from the United States, Canada, Australia and
other countries that low frequency technology is not meeting their
needs. Some users have commented that LF scanners are very large and
bulky, not user friendly, unreliable in operating environments with
machinery, and can only read one tag at a time. Others have said they
feel LF technology is too limited in scope to make it a permanent
option. Our UHF technology will allow users to implement a cost
effective identification and trace back system, attain greater
efficiency and automation within their own operations - as well as
throughout the supply chain, and ensure reliable data for expedient
trace back queries. With our experience selling LF products to the
animal market since 1994, we believe UHF technology offers significantly
greater benefits for livestock management."

In other developments, with the recent appointment of Thailand's new
Minister of Agriculture, Advanced ID is expected to resume its
negotiations to secure a contract for livestock identification and trace
back of chickens, pigs and cattle. In Taiwan, the Company is presently
modifying its RFID tags utilized for the identification and trace back
of pigs due to some tags being damaged from biting. Once its RFID tags
are able to withstand this biting pressure - expected in the weeks
ahead, Advanced ID will continue its field trials.

In Advanced ID's January 4, 2005 press release, the Company announced it
had received a $135,000 microchip order from the University of PEI and
the Government of Newfoundland. It should be noted that a portion of
this contract was received from the Government of Canada - Newfoundland
and not from the Government of Newfoundland.

About Kansas State University - Department of Animal Sciences and
Industry

Kansas State University's Department of Animal Sciences and Industry
emerged from the Farming Department in 1901, to its current form as one
of the largest Animal Science departments in the United States, and the
leading North American university in research on radio frequency
identification of animals. The Department of Animal Sciences and
Industry has well-equipped laboratories, teaching facilities, a dairy
processing plant and a meat processing facility. Field research
facilities for beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, poultry, horses, and
sheep are located in close proximity to campus. The department manages
about 6,500 acres of land for research purposes. In a typical year,
departmental research and teaching facilities accommodate about 2,000 to
3,000 cattle, 3,500 swine, 1,500 laying hens, 250 sheep and 45 horses.
