5-Agent Detection Kits and Chemical Weapon Detection for Washington

Universal Detection Technology : 21 July, 2010  (Application Story)
Washington's Office of Public Safety to take biological and chemical weapons detection kits from Universal Detection Technology for use in counter terrorism operations
Universal Detection Technology has received a purchase order from the Washington, DC's Office of Public Safety and Justice for its bioterror and chemical detection equipment. The purchase order includes orders for UNDT's 5-agent detection kits as well as a first-time order for equipment for the detection of chemical weapons such as chlorine, hydrogen sulfide and phosgene.

UNDT's recently added the Chameleon line of chemical weapon detection equipment to its product catalogue. Low cost and easy-to-use, Chameleon chemical detection device can be used by fire, police or emergency rescue personnel in their role as First Responders. This innovation in colour change technology enables the wearer to quickly determine the presence of hazardous chemicals, including Low pH (acid), High pH (base), Chlorine/Fluoride, Hydrogen Sulfide and Phosgene.

The Chameleon can be used by First Responders in many different applications. Because of its low cost and ease of use, the Chameleon is an excellent chemical detection solution.

UNDT's 5-agent detection equipment has been extensively used by first responders and private industry throughout the country. The equipment has been evaluated by the US DOD as well as the United Kingdom military. The equipment's capacities include:

* No cross-reactivity with near neighbour strains
* No cross-reactivity to household powders
* No set up time
* No expensive reader needed
* No decontamination requirements
* No false positives
* No false negatives
* No hook effect

"One of UNDT's goals has always been to become a one-stop-shop for CBRN detection equipment to first responders throughout the country," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "The purchase order from the Office of Public Safety and Justice is the first order that combines UNDT's chemical and biological weapon detection equipment," continued Tizabi.
