MIT Is Selected as a Semi-Finalist for Adaptive Business Leader's 2008 Innovations in Healthcare Awards Event

MIT Is Selected as a Semi-Finalist for Adaptive Business Leader's 2008 Innovations in Healthcare Awards Event

SAN CLEMENTE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 01/28/08 -- Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. (OTCBB: MMTC) announces that its product, the MIT 1000 Rapid Microbial Identification System was selected as a Semi-Finalist for Adaptive Business Leader's (ABL) 2008 Annual Innovations in Healthcare Awards. For the past 9 years, ABL has reviewed new product innovations from several hundred companies and recognized those innovative providers and producers of medical devices that offer society the greatest value by decreasing healthcare related costs and increasing quality. The key features and benefits of the MIT 1000 System that has lead to our "selection" include:

--  The ability to identify up to 23 different species of bacteria
    including MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus), E.coli,
    Salmonella and Listeria -- all of which are frequently reported
    contamination cases found in food processing, food products, hospitals
    and other public places.

--  Identification occurs in less than 10 minutes after completion of the
    culturing process without using chemicals, reagents or DNA processing.

--  Culture time is usually twice as fast as typical laboratory standards
    due to the small amount of organisms needed to identify the bacteria.

--  The End User does not need to have prior knowledge of the species
    before starting the test. As long as the bacteria species is in the
    System's database, identification will be made.

--  Projected cost per test is less than 10 cents.

"We are pleased to have been recognized by the ABL organization for the MIT 1000 System's potential value to society and are looking forward to ABL's Finalist selection in April 2008," stated Michael Brennan, MIT's Chairman.

About Adaptive Business Leaders Organization

Celebrating its 25th anniversary year, the Adaptive Business Leaders (ABL) Organization's mission is to help health and technology leaders grow great companies. ABL does this through its eight monthly, industry-specific Round Tables held throughout California, and frequent Conferences, Workshops and Events. In their confidential Round Tables, ABL Members -- who are CEOs, Presidents, COOs and Division General Managers of Health and Technology companies -- openly seek from and share with each other candid advice, best practices and innovative approaches for capitalizing on market trends and opportunities, in order to assure they are well positioned for business and personal success.

About Micro Imaging Technology

The Company has developed and patented a technology for rapid microbe detection and identification. This System measures scattered light intensity as individual microbes pass through a laser beam. The intensity pattern of the scattered light is a direct consequence of the size, shape and external and internal optical characteristics of the microbe. The MIT System is non-biological and does not rely on biological agents, conventional chemical processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.

MIT has demonstrated the ability to detect and identify, within several minutes, the microbes Escherichia coli, Listeria, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, Shigella and other pathogenic bacteria. 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 the Company's opinion, demonstrated the accuracy, speed and efficiency of the MIT System over conventional processes and is available from the Company. The MIT 1000 System was recently featured in a Rapid Microbiology international newsletter and can be viewed at http://www.rapidmicrobiology.com/news/1231h0.php?s=MIT.
