Answer from the National Institute For Communicable Diseases. I asked if they could confirm this PR.
Maybe it's all true after all!!! wouldn't that be something !!!
Dear Mr. Xxxxx, yes I can confirm that the NICD evaluated the kit and the results are correct. The company should be able to provide you with a report that we provided to them for your scrutiny. The results however, are not necessarily unique to the kit and does not mean there is necessarily a competitive advantage against other kits.

EDMONTON, Alberta, Dec. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medical Services International Inc. (Pinksheets: MSITF) is pleased to announce that it has completed additional testing of its VScan HIV test kit with the National Institute For Communicable Diseases. The regulatory agency tested 500 VScan HIV test kits with the following test results: Sensitivity- 100%, Specificity- 100%. It is very rare for a test kit to test with such accuracy.

A report of this magnitude from an agency with the excellent reputation of the National Institute For Communicable Diseases confirms the reliability of the VScan HIV test kit.

The many excellent independent test results are now being included in new updated marketing brochures and will be included on the new website that is currently being constructed. It is felt that reports of this magnitude combined with additional approvals in more countries combined with the new website will significantly increase kit sales in 2007. The Company is looking forward to an exceptional new year.
The VScan rapid test kit is a single use, disposable, accurate, cost effective, easy to use, test for the screening of HIV 1&2, Hepatitis B&C, Tuberculosis (TB), Dengue Fever, West Nile, Syphilis, Malaria and Prostate Cancer. The kits cannot be sold in Canada.
