    committed to ordering one hundred MIT 1000 Systems

    SAN CLEMENTE, CA--(Marketwire - 04/18/11) - Micro Imaging Technologies, Inc. (Pinksheets:MMTC - News) announced that it 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.

    "The first production MIT 1000 Systems delivered from OSIO recently passed all evaluations tests with excellent results and are now in daily use in the MIT laboratory," stated MIT's Chief Scientist David Haavig, PhD, and added, "OSIO is the perfect company to fabricate MIT's Systems for our initial food safety applications and planned future expansion into pharmaceutical and clinical diagnostics requirements."

    "MIT contracted with OSIO in 2010 to manufacture MIT's Rapid Microbial Identification System -- their world-class manufacturing facilities in California, Malaysia and India are all ISO 9001:2000 certified, FDA registered and GMP compliant, making them the perfect supplier. With an order for one hundred Systems -- we have made a strong commitment to OSIO and the food safety industry -- and look forward to great results," observed Michael Brennan, MIT's Chairman.
