MIT to Present at the 2015 IAFP Conference

SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 13, 2015) - Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. (OTCQB: MMTC) announced that it has been invited by the International Association for Food Protection to give a presentation at its 2015 annual meeting later this month in Portland, Oregon. Dr. David Haavig, MIT's Chief Scientific Officer, will be a speaker at the symposium covering "Novel Frontiers in Microbiology -- Recent Advances in Non-DNA based Rapid Microbial Detection and Identification Methods." He will share the unique scientific and innovative technology of the MIT 1000, a bacterial cell based identification system that can identify pathogenic bacteria in three minutes (average) at significant cost savings per test. As well, he will touch upon the latest advances in testing procedures that the MIT 1000 has spurred.

Each year, the IAFP hosts an Annual Meeting, providing attendees with information on current and emerging food safety issues, the latest science, innovative solutions to new and recurring problems, and the opportunity to network with thousands of food safety professionals from around the globe. It is attended by more than 2,800 of the top industry, academic and governmental food safety specialists from six continents. Held in various locations throughout North America, this meeting has grown over the years to become the leading food safety conference worldwide. This year's meeting is Saturday, July 25 - Tuesday, July 28 and will be held at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Haavig is slated to speak on Monday, July 27th at 10:30 A.M.

About: IAFP
The International Association for Food Protection (IAFP), founded in 1911, is a non-profit association of 3,600 food safety professionals committed to Advancing Food Safety Worldwide® by providing members worldwide with a forum to exchange information on protecting the global food supply. The Association provides its members with an information network on scientific, technical, and practical developments in food safety and sanitation through its two scientific journals, Food Protection Trends and Journal of Food Protection, its educational Annual Meeting, and interaction with other food safety professionals. www.foodprotection.org

About: Micro Imaging Technology, Inc.
Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. is a California-based public company that is also registered to do business under the name Micro Identification Technologies. MIT has developed and patented the MIT 1000, a stand-alone, rapid, optically-based, software driven system that can identify pathogenic bacteria and complete an identification test, after culturing, in three (3) minutes (average) at the lowest cost per test when compared to any other conventional method. It does not rely on chemical or biological agents, conventional processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis. The process requires only clean filtered water and a sample of the unknown bacteria. Revenues for all rapid testing methods exceed $5 billion annually - with food safety accounting for over $3.5 billion, which is expected to surpass $4.7 billion by this year according to BCC Research. In addition, the recently passed "New" U.S. Food Safety Bill is expected to further accelerate the current annual growth rate of 6.6 percent.

In June 2009, the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC RI) awarded the Company Performance Tested Methods SM (PTM) certification for the rapid identification of Listeria. The AOAC RI provides an independent third party evaluation and expert reviews of methods and will award PTM certification to methods that demonstrate performance levels equivalent or better than other certified bacteria identifying methods. The MIT System underwent hundreds of individual tests, including ruggedness and accuracy, to earn AOAC RI's certification for the identification of Listeria.
