Universal Detection Technology, a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies and counter-terrorism training programs to protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats, will showcase the latest developments in bio-weapons detection technology, including the TS-10-5-agent biodetection kit, at Milipol Paris 2009.

"Our presence at Milipol comes at a time when international security experts are admonishing government agencies to be prepared for the real threat of a bioterrorism attack," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Bio-weapon detection should be a top priority for all public entities, because for terrorists, they can be purchased or engineered at relatively low costs, can induce mass casualties and are oftentimes undetected by on-the-ground law enforcement," continued Tizabi.

The Commission on Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, assembled by the United States Congress post 9/11, issued an interim report last week that called bioterrorism the "most urgent threat" facing the United States. The report said that national security for anti-bioterrorism programs and "appropriate disease surveillance" were severely underfunded and neglected.

"There are bio-weapon monitoring tools immediately available for public and private entities, easy to implement and cost effective," said Tizabi. "Universal Detection Technology's bio-detection kits are the first step in meeting the needs of bioterrorism prevention and planning," continued Tizabi.

Universal Detection Technology's kits, certified earlier this year by the US Department of Homeland Security as an "Approved Product for Homeland Security," are the industry's only hand-held assay designed to detect and identify up to five separate threats using one sample in a single, easy-to-use device. The kits equip first responders with an effective tool for the rapid onsite detection of up to five biological warfare agents: anthrax, ricin, botulinum toxin, Y. pestis (plague) and Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B (SEB). Detection time is under three minutes.

Universal Detection Technology will showcase its TS-10-5-agent bio-detection kit with live and taped demonstrations at booth #11K059 at the Milipol Paris 2009, held November 17 - 21, 2009. Members of UNDT's executive team, including R&D and business development, will be present to answer questions about the products and the company.

Prior to Milipol Paris 2009, Universal Detection Technology will be presenting its bio-detection kits to the 2012 London Olympics organizers at the 2009 Terrorism & Security Conference, to be held in London November 17th and 18th.

UNDT has also recently signed agreements with the US Department of Commerce to be the featured exporter of bioterrorism detection equipment in France and South Korea.
