The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 274,144 with a 52-week low/high of $0.02/$0.138.

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) is focused on becoming a global leader in developing, supporting and marketing rapid systems and processes that detect and identify microbial organisms. For several years the company has been working on the development of a breakthrough, laser-based microbial identification technology. This technology has been designed to be extremely fast and easy to use while not relying on conventional chemical or biological processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.

The system works by measuring 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. By measuring scattered light at specific angles, MIT’s system detects and differentiates objects the size of bacteria, protozoa, yeasts and molds.

The company’s technology offers significant advantages over today’s methods of microbial detection, including lower cost, rapid results, easier use and the ability to test for multiple bacteria in one process. The system is statistically based and includes a unique MIT Microbe Library of pre-measured light scattering identifiers - or fingerprints - derived from the measurements of tens of thousands of individual microbes for each species and subspecies to be detected.

MIT’s technology has the potential to revolutionize the $5 billion rapid microbial test market by annually saving thousands of lives and tens of millions of dollars. Since 1998, the industry has had an annual expansion of 9.2 percent - with growth projections for 30 percent annually. MIT is well positioned with its cutting-edge microbial technology as demand continues to soar as a result of major health, safety and homeland security issues. Disclaimer

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today, National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.0650, up 8.33%, on 11,000 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 19,203 with a 52-week low/high of $0.04/$0.158.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

Companies Vying for Position with Psoriasis Drugs as Industry Sets to Double to Nearly $7 Billion in Next Decade

Recently, Decision Resources, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms for pharmaceutical and health care issues, released an article stating that “the continued uptake of marketed and emerging interleukin and TNF-alpha inhibitors and a twofold increase in the penetration of biologics in the moderate-to-severe population will drive the psoriasis drug market to double from $3.4 billion in 2009 to $6.8 billion in 2019 in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom and Japan.”

The report went on to detail the main competitors in the psoriasis market which include:
• Enbrel (etanercept), a TNF-alpha inhibitor (Amgen/GlaxoSmithKline/ Pfizer/Takeda)
• Humira (adalimumab), an interleukin inhibitor (Abbott/Eisai)
• Stelara (ustekinumab), an interleukin inhibitor(Johnson & Johnson/ Centocor Ortho Biotech)
• Briakinumab, an interleukin inhibitor (Abbott)

Enbrel was the clear leader in 2009 with over $1.3 billion in sales, but it should be noted that Humira and other interleukin inhibitors are expected to provide stiff competition in 2010 and beyond. Newly USFDA-approved Stelara (approved in January 2010) is also expected to climb to the top of the ranks and cut into Enbrel’s market share as one head to head test showed Stelara to be more effective than Enbrel.

“In 2011, Humira will overtake Enbrel as the new market leader with blockbuster sales of $2.3 billion by 2019—nearly double that of Enbrel’s sales in that year,” said Decision Resources Analyst Iva Holder, Ph.D. “The interleukin inhibitor Stelara, which launched last year, will rank third in 2019, garnering approximately $970 million in sales. Additionally, briakinumab—the most promising interleukin inhibitor, is poised to compete for first-line biologic use and its sales will exceed $800 million in 2019.”

An interesting conclusion to the article stated that no oral agents were expected to have a significant impact on the psoriasis drug market in the next decade. An effective oral agent is generally thought of to be the “holy grail” in biotechnology because of the ease of use. Many notable companies will be anxious to prove the Pharmacor 2010 findings wrong with their oral medications in development for psoriasis. Pharmas such as Genzyme, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Novartis all have oral drugs in development at the moment.

A true sleeper in the industry is Cellceutix Corporation, which trades on the Bulletin Boards under the ticker CTIX. Their compound, KM-133, has displayed promising results in early research and has carries the possibility of a 505(b)(2) exemption which would move it directly into Phase II clinical trials and put Cellceutix in a prime position amongst industry giants. Destum Partners has just begun actively pursuing a developmental partner for KM-133 for Cellceutix. The Cellceutix executives believe that the combination of exemption possibility and the strong results already exhibited will be very appealing to large pharmas for development. Destum has spoken with several companies already and will be reporting on progress in the near future.

ISTEC and UNM have agreed to provide expert guidance and client support to ensure that the LearnChannels concept will realize its full potential.

Two types of LearnChannels are contemplated, with the first used for group-based collaborative learning and the second used for individual self-paced education. It is anticipated that the company’s advanced SmartOne intelligent teaching technology will be leveraged to empower the individual self-learning version of the LearnChannel.

An important aspect of the LearnChannel concept will be ease of use and versatility to encompass all levels and types of education and training. For example, LearnChannels will allow course designers to develop unique learning experiences and to select from a number of teaching modalities.

eDoorways CEO, Gary Kimmons, commented on the new program. “Recent discussions with our associated organizations have made it clear that the time for a new collaborative learning venue such as the LearnChannel is now. In view of the positive reception our PowerChannels are receiving, deploying specialized versions of them in the public and private education markets could prove to be very productive. There are a number of challenges facing our institutions of higher education, such as preparing our young generation for a tougher work environment and striving to effectively apply limited resources. We’re pleased to be able to draw upon the knowledge and expertise that ISTEC and UNM will provide as we roll out LearnChannels. We want to bring a powerful new educational tool to all schools across America.”

Newly-appointed eDoorways board member and founder of ISTEC Dr. Ramiro Jordan stated, “We see big possibilities as these powerful new tools emerge. The LearnChannel can do for educational collaboration what PowerChannels will be doing for information dissemination, cross-cultural sharing and business development. ISTEC will begin testing the functionality of the LearnChannel as soon as eDoorways hands us the keys.”

For eDoorways, LearnChannels also represents a new income source, allowing the company to derive revenue from associated ecommerce transactions, subscription fees, curricula administration fees, and learning accreditation fees. The company could also charge for embedded widgets on websites.

FuelCell Energy, Inc. (FCEL) Sells 1.4 Megawatt Fuel Cell Power Plant

Fuel Cell Energy Inc. is a leading manufacturer of high efficiency, ultra-clean power plants which use renewable and other fuels for commercial, industrial, government and utility customers. The company’s fuel cells are generating power at over 50 locations worldwide and its power plants have generated over 500 million kilowatts of power.

The company announced today the sale of a 1.4 megawatt DFC1500 fuel cell power plant to G3 Power Systems Inc. G3 provides complete turnkey fuel cell installations along with engineering and construction services, and power purchase agreements. The sale of this power plant represents the first order by G3 under an agreement with FuelCell Energy.

The power plant will be installed by G3 at Olivera Egg Ranch LLC, a poultry ranch located in French Camp, California and is expected to be operational by mid-2011. The ranch produces about 14 million cartons of eggs per year for stores and restaurants in the San Francisco area. It is expected that the power plant will be adequate to meet all of the power needs of the ranch facilities.

The power plant will utilize renewable biogas for fuel, converting what is currently a waste problem for Olivera Egg Ranch into clean electricity that is generated at the point of use. The waste stream from the poultry operation emits ammonia, methane and other gases. An anaerobic digester will be installed and the waste stream will be directed into this structure where heat and microorganisms will reduce the volume of waste and create methane gas as a byproduct. The fuel cell power plant will utilize this methane waste byproduct as fuel to generate renewable electricity.

G3 said that it has identified a number of opportunities in agriculture along with other commercial opportunities. The company went on to say it looks forward to working with FuelCell Energy to grow the market for fuel cells in California and the western United States.
