    Information on the MIT 1000!

    The following confirms the MIT 1000 as a breakthrough, laser-based, rapid microbial identification system. It seems more than reasonable that critiques of the MIT 1000 should reference these publications from USDA, AOAC and NAMSA. These are HARD, verifiable sources. Further developments will come from the company.

    HERE IS THE USDA/AOAC (1) FULL REPORT ON THE MIT 1000, PUBLISHED, BY THE WAY, IN THE JOURNAL OF AOAC INTERNATIONAL VOL. 93, NO. 1, 2010
    MIT 1000 passed rigorous testing at USDA for AOAC with 99% accuracy.
    http://ddr.nal.usda.gov/bitstream/10113/41910/1/IND44365309.pdf
    “A total of 81 blind qualitative microbial identification performance tests were done in accordance with the test protocol found in Section 3.5. Fifty-five were performed at the MIT laboratory and 26 at the USDA ARS (independent laboratory). One false positive and no false negatives were recorded, resulting in 80 of 81 tests being correctly identified for a total score of 99%.”

    HERE IS THE NAMSA (2) FULL REPORT ON THE MIT 1000
    http://www.micro-imaging.com/pdf/MITNAMSAFinal(MicroIdentificationTechnologies).pdf
    "The MIT system performed 50 tests, 10 specimens for each of the five bacterial species, and had 49 correct identifications (98 percent correct). Average time for sample preparation was approximately one minute and the average test time was about 3 minutes."

    (1) USDA and AOAC need no further introductions

    (2) North American Science Associates, Inc. (“NAMSA”), for over 35 years, has been one of the world's leading independent laboratories specializing in the safety evaluation of medical devices.
