MIT Rebrands To Micro Identification Technologies

Micro Imaging Technology (MIT) has changed its name to Micro Identification Technologies to better reflect the capabilities of its ID technology in many applications.

MIT currently produces the 1000 Rapid Microbial Identification (ID) System that can identify bacteria in less than five minutes with a laser that uses the principles of light scattering and with PC-based software algorithms to test bacteria samples at less than $.10 per test.

MIT’s technology can also be used for applications in clinical diagnostics, pharmaceutical and semiconductor processing as well as drinking water testing. Each of these applications will be pursued over the next few years. The technology is also adaptable to perform identification in air.

Michael Brennan, chairman and CEO of MIT, said: “Our company’s mission is to become an advanced identifier for a variety of applications spanning several industries and we felt our name should reflect this objective.”

California-based MIT has developed and patented a rapid microbial identification (ID) System that revolutionizes the pathogenic bacteria ID process and can annually save thousands of lives and tens of millions of dollars. The system does not rely on chemical or biological agents, conventional processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.
