This morning before the opening bell, Micro Identification Technologies, Inc. announced that it has expanded the contract of its Distributor Biotek Sdn Bhd to train all MIT distributors in Asia on the operation and service of the MIT 1000 Rapid Microbial Identification System. Currently, the distributor has facilities in Malaysia and is responsible for sales and service in Malaysia and other ASEAN countries, including: Indonesia, Singapore, The Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia and others. MIT currently has Asian distributors in Vietnam, South Korea, Japan, India and Turkey and plans to add others later this year.

Biotek purchased a system in October of last year for use in sales promotions and has demonstrated the system to numerous potential customers throughout the ASEAN countries where sales are anticipated in the near term. MIT’s distributor in Vietnam, Viet Ba, will be the first distributor to be trained by Biotek in June, 2010.

“Biotek launched an aggressive plan to promote the MIT 1000 System and with its new contract will help accelerate sales both inside and outside of its territory,” stated John Ricardi, MIT’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Ricardi added, “Biotek continues to be an excellent distributor for MIT and we are proud to have them as part of our team.”
