About Micro Imaging Technology:

The Company has developed and patented a technology for rapid microbe identification (ID) the MIT 1000 System ("System"). The System ID process is significantly different from all conventional ID methods and does not rely on chemical or biological agents, conventional processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis -- the process is totally GREEN requiring only water and a sample of the unknown bacteria. www.micro-imaging.com

MIT recently completed an extensive, almost one-year in duration, evaluation by the AOAC Research Institute which included independent rigorous testing and thorough reviews by the AOAC RI and its expert reviewers, including the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The AOAC RI Report is available from the Company. www.aoac.org

Further, 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 recently 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. The NAMSA Test Report, in MIT's opinion, demonstrated the accuracy, speed and cost effectiveness of the System over conventional processes and is also available from the Company. www.namsa.com
