SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Micro Imaging Technology, Inc. (OTC: Bulletin Board: MMTC) today announced that it has changed is company name to Micro Identification Technologies to better reflect the extensive capabilities of its ID technology software. The company currently produces the MIT 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 proprietary PC-based software algorithms to test bacteria samples at less than $.10 per test.

"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," stated Michael Brennan, MIT's Chairman and CEO.
