As of January 31, 2011, the Company owns eighty point seven percent (80.7%) of the issued and outstanding stock of MIT.
has committed to ordering one hundred MIT 1000 Systems with an immediate requirement for twenty Systems. The MIT 1000 System is produced for MIT exclusively by OSI Optoelectronics (OSIO), a subsidiary of OSI Systems and is believed to be the fastest and most inexpensive bacterial identification system available; identifying bacteria strains in less than five minutes after culturing, at a cost of less than 10 cents per test and extremely easy to use. The MIT 1000 System has been certified by the AOAC Research Institute (AOAC RI) as a test method for Listeria, one of three bacteria (the others are Salmonella and E.coli) that are responsible for the majority of the worldwide food contamination events. The Company is in the process of preparing the MIT 1000 System for AOAC RI certifications for the identification of both Salmonella and E. coli later this year. This will give the MIT 1000 System the ability to identify all "three" bacteria within five minutes in a single test

Gas hawk: There is no "culturing" because the device identifies individual microbes. That's a huge part of the appeal. There is no need to wait for microbes to reproduce because a small sample can be quickly processed with just a small sample.
The real differentiator is after culture too...how quickly you will be bale to see the result & how experinced technician is required.
You have only single agenda thats to spread false information with twisted.
MIT100 picks up the testing once the sample has been cultered. So - same thing. It's not like you throw a slab of meat in your MIT100 and bingo you get results. technicians still need to culture a sameple. The ease of use of the MIT10 has been oversold (IMHO).
I ain't the sharpest ax, but here goes.. back when I was a meat inspector..the regs required different times and temperatures to grow cultures, e coli, salmonella. Is it the same for micro imaging?
