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.
