Universal Detection Technology (UNDT) to Present Radiation Detection Technologies in RISCON Safety and Security Expo in Tokyo

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Universal Detection Technology, a company that engages in the research, development, and marketing of bioterrorism detection devices in the United States, announced that the Company’s management will be showcasing its radiation detection technologies in Tokyo, Japan. UNDT is showcasing its equipment at the RISCON Safety and Security Expo.

A recent reported has shown that radiation “hot spots” in Tokyo have levels of radioactive Cesium in some areas equivalent to the levels of contaminated areas around Chernobyl in Ukraine, the site of a disastrous nuclear accident in 1986. The results form these tests have led to a growing group of scientists and local residents demanding increased soil testing and immediate efforts for clean up.

“Radioactive substances are entering people’s bodies from the air and from the food. It’s everywhere,” said Kiyoshi Toda, a radiation expert at Nagasaki University’s faculty of environmental studies, and a medical doctor. “But the government doesn’t even try to inform the public how much radiation they’re exposed to.”

“The reports of the so called ‘hot spots’ in Tokyo with dangerous levels of radioactive Cesium is very alarming,” said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT’s Chairman and CEO. “Our presence in Tokyo has allowed us to deliver much needed detection equipment to the people of Japan. We hope that in the coming months we can expand our reach and market our radiation detection systems to a variety of Japanese government and private institutions. Being here in Tokyo has given us the opportunity to discuss the situation with our current customers and have a clearer understanding of their needs. Yesterday, with one current customer, we tested detection systems on actual grass from the Fukushima region,” he added.

UNDT is showcasing a variety of its radiation detection devices. These include dosimeter systems utilized for measurement of cumulative radiation exposures and advanced survey meters and surface monitors for the detection of contamination on surfaces, in particular food and water. The Company is utilizing a variety of channels in addition to its local representatives to market its radiation detection systems. With help from the Japanese mission of the U.S. Department of Commerce, UNDT has been able to reach out to its local partners who can aid in increasing the Company’s sales.

Universal Detection Technology is a company that works in the research, development, and marketing of bioterrorism detection devices in the U.S. It offers government agencies, defense sector, and commercial companies with the early-warning monitoring technologies and counter-terrorism training programs that protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats.

Universal Detection Technology (UDTT.OB) Receives First Order for Anti MRSA Products in China

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

Universal Detection Technology (UDTT), a manufacturer of systems able to detect bio-hazardous and infectious threats, announced that it received its first purchase order for anti-MRSA products from Kandinuo Science and Technology of Beijing. MRSA stands for multiple-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, bacteria responsible for difficult-to-treat infections in humans.

Jacquest Tizabi, UDTT’s Chairman and CEO stated: “This is the second purchase order we have received from our Chinese distributor pursuant to our recent agreement. The first order was related to our line of bio-terrorism detection products. We look forward to establishing an effective and long-term relationship with Kadinuo and to use their influence to find a market for our products and services in China both in the counter-terrorism market and in the anti-microbial market.”

Kadinuo has actively promoted advanced radiation instrumentation in China for over 10 years. During this period, Kadinuo has established itself as one of the most successful radiation-detection instrument suppliers in China. It is also known as one of the leading regional suppliers of decontamination kits, emergency nuclear monitors, and environmental radiation monitors. Kadinuo is also an established supplier of equipment to a number of governmental agencies in China.

The World Health Organization West Pacific Regional Office has anti-microbial resistance surveillance centers in Beijing and Shanghai due to the number of hospital-acquired and community-acquired MRSA strains discovered in both cities. Studies have shown that China has the highest rate of antibiotic resistant bacteria strains in the world. It is evident how easily an infectious disease can spread rapidly through a country and across national borders after the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) issue in 2003. China did not have the facilities or therapeutic options to handle the outbreak.

With the start of the Olympics in Beijing in a few months, it looks like Kandinuo is preparing to guard Chinese residents and international visitors against bio-hazardous and infectious diseases.

Universal Detection Technology Corp. (UDTT.OB) Receives Orders for Ricin Detection Kits Following Las Vegas Scare

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Universal Detection Technologies Corporation announced that it has received orders for its ricin detection kits that are capable of detecting ricin toxin, anthrax, botulinum toxin, Plague and other biochemical agents. Orders came in immediately following the recent ricin incident in Las Vegas. These kits are the best available means of early detection of these materials and utilize cutting edge airborne pathogen detection technology.

Last week police in Las Vegas said a man was in critical condition after being found unconscious in a motel room with a powder suspected of being the poison ricin. Investigators were still trying to figure out the mystery of how a rare, deadly poison was brought to a motel in Las Vegas. Adding to the mystery, police said firearms and an “anarchist type textbook” were found in the same room where the ricin was discovered two days later. After authorities seized the book and weapons, tests for ricin were conducted but came back negative, according to Las Vegas police Capt. Joseph Lombardo. The deadly substance was found in several vials of powder in a plastic bag in the room on Thursday.

In a recent interview with the CEO of UDTT, Jacques Tizabi, said, “The recent incident indicates that the threat of terrorism with unconventional weapons is a reality that we live with in today’s world.” He also added, “Although no direct links to terrorism has been yet drawn in this recent case in Las Vegas, it is important to note that hazardous materials in the hands of domestic terrorists can be a very serious threat. We are proud to supply cutting edge detection technologies to first responders who are the first to come to close contact with such chemical and biological substances.”

Universal Detection Technology (UDTT.OB) – Modern Plagues, the War Rages On

Friday, February 29th, 2008

For all the miracles of modern medicine, there are a few very basic facts that often get overlooked in this new fangled age of technology. One of those basic facts is that there is still NO cure for the common cold. Yes you can treat the symptoms, reduce your fever, calm your headache, but the fact remains that it’s your own body’s defense mechanism that finally defeats the “bad bugs” and get you better. Well, it’s also true that the battle between “us” and the “bugs” has been going on for thousands of years, and over time, both adapt to new environs.

If one were to look at the whole scope of the medical arsenal that can be deployed against disease, it would be easy to think that we’ve won the war against virus, bacteria, mold etc. Nothing could be further from the truth however. All of these life forms change, adapt, even go into hiding while trying to come up with new ways to infect us. Often they figure out ways to mutate into forms that our self defense mechanisms cannot recognize. They’ve even have been shown to migrate from one form of host to another, such as jumping from animal infections to man infections. In the past few years we’ve heard of frightening statistics about such things as SARS, and Bird flu. Estimates are that a true pandemic of either would kill several millions of people. This is the power of the “bug”.

Recently there’s been a lot of murmuring about MRSA, a rather horrible bacteria that’s become resistant to almost all of modern medicine’s antibiotics. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called “staph.” Decades ago, a strain of staph emerged in hospitals that was resistant to the broad-spectrum antibiotics commonly used to treat it. Dubbed methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), it was one of the first germs to outwit all but the most powerful drugs.

In the 1990s, a type of MRSA began showing up in the wider community. Today, that form of staph, known as community-associated MRSA, or CA-MRSA, is responsible for many serious skin and soft tissue infections and for a serious form of pneumonia. In fact, just a few days ago, a young man perished from this very pneumonia, raising alarms all around the world. Why? He did nothing wrong. He wasn’t weak, old, or frail. He wasn’t a drug user, an AIDS victim or had a poorly functioning immune system. Yet this “super bug” took his young life, and modern medicine couldn’t save him.

This is where UDTT becomes so very important. Universal Detection Technology has been in the business of “looking for” bad bugs since its inception. Detecting abnormal amounts of airborne mold spores, for example, is a core element of their business. But it’s their recent Product introduction named Vital Oxide that gets our attention. This approach to sterilizing is different from the harsh chemical products commonly used such as Chlorine bleach. This product “burns up” the bad bugs, mold, mildew, etc via oxidation instead. It’s safe enough to wash your hands with, but dynamic enough to kill 99.9% of all the bad guys, including MRSA.

With the EPA certification of the product, and their newly developed fogger type dispensers, Universal has opened the door to a much wider consumer base than they presently enjoy. No longer confined to anti terrorism and monitoring capabilities, UDTT is expected to be a powerful force in the war against such horrid bugs as MRSA.

The public is becoming both aware of, and “scared of” MRSA and for good reason. It’s killing children. School kids are having surgery to remove parts of arms and hands horribly infected with such bugs, and all they did to acquire it was to play some touch football. They cry out for schools, hospitals, daycare centers, etc to “do something” and UDTT gives them an effective way to sterilize these very areas, economically and almost completely.

As MRSA infections continue to increase, UDTT’s order books will likewise increase as the public clamors for prevention. Someone has to combat these horrid infectious diseases, and until modern medicine can cure us of them, UDTT’s Vital Oxide sterilizer will be in great demand.

Universal Detection Technology (UDTT.OB) to Market EPA Approved Bacteria-Killing Product Line

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Universal Detection Technology (OTCBB: UDTT) today announced it has secured a deal to market its line of Anti-Microbial Products. Approved by The Environmental Protection Agency, the products are effective in killing 99.9% of bacteria, including Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus (MRSA), E.coli, Norovirus and Salmonella.

“The introduction of the new EPA approved anti-microbial spray and fogger to our product line, augments our current anti-microbial products and services,” Jacques Tizabi UDTT’s CEO said in a statement. “We will continue to market these products to all venues that are vulnerable to community-acquired MRSA. We expect that having our products EPA-approved will appeal to a larger customer base.”

MRSA has become a wide-spread fear as more cases are reported in schools, hospitals and other frequented areas. MRSA is spread through direct skin-to-skin contact or contact with items or surfaces that have come into contact with someone else’s infection. The increase in the spread of the infection has led to several fatalities in recent years.

Universal Detection’s anti-MRSA product, Vital Oxide, uses oxidization rather than bleaching to combat mold, mildew and bacteria, rendering it harmless on fabrics and skin. Universal Detection also develops early-warning monitoring technologies in the line of Homeland Security to protect the United States from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats. The company has established a working partnership with NASA to create a bio-terror smoke and bio-hazard substance detector.

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

Universal Detection Technologies Corporation, well known for its bioterrorism monitoring and detection technology, announced that it has signed a deal to market a line of Anti-Microbial products that have been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

MRSA is also commonly found in many nursing homes, elderly care and hospitals because of the close patient proximity and shared facilities.

This new product line, Vital Oxide, should see high demand, but the suitors are not the traditional customer that Universal Detection typically deals with, so a new online marketing campaign has begun to promote the line. Jacques Tizabi, CEO of UDTT commented on this situation, “The introduction of the new EPA approved anti-microbial spray and fogger to our product line, augments our current anti-microbial products and services.” He later added, “We will continue to market these products to all venues that are vulnerable to community-acquired MRSA.

CEO Mr. Tibazi is quoted saying, “The report shows the immense potential of our Silver Product Line in combating the spread of harmful bacteria such as MRSA. We plan to market our product to facilities where people gather and where maintaining a sterile environment is an issue such as schools, hospitals, and assisted living centers.” This shows the diversity in their product Mix and the number of potential markets for their products.

The company also announced their launch of a Marketing campaign for its MSRA line of products. The campaign aims to market the products and drive sales to its online hub. Mr. Tabazi said, “As we are continuing to see interest from many sources in our product line of antimicrobial products, we are building on our marketing of such products.
