Bio-Detection kits for sports goods retailer

Universal Detection Technology : 22 July, 2009  (Application Story)
The commercial sector is taking further advantage of bi-terrorism detection systems with a sports goods retailer having placed an order for detection kits from Universal Detection Technology
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, has received a repeat order for its five-agent bio-detection kits by a leading retailer of athletic apparel. Due to confidentiality concerns, Universal Detection Technology cannot reveal the purchaser's name.

According to Universal Detection Technology CEO Jacques Tizabi, the purchase order is very significant for Universal Detection Technology, as it shows new commercial and civilian applications for the company's products. Increasingly, larger companies are handling some aspects of CBRNE (chemical, biological, radiation and nuclear explosives) prevention in-house, thus mitigating costly delays when first responders have to be called.

'With our recent DHS certification, we believe private and public company orders from outside the traditional homeland security market will continue to increase,' said Tizabi. "The kits are portable, easy-to-use and cost effective solutions for companies addressing the real risks of bioterrorism," continued Tizabi.

Traditionally, Universal Detection Technology's bioterrorism kits have been employed solely for homeland security and governmental agency use, such as the US Department of Defence and fire and EMS services for Washington, DC.

Universal Detection Technology's five-agent bio-detection kit is the most rapid and accurate test of its kind in the market. In as little as three minutes, a single test can detect up to five lethal agents: anthrax, ricin, botulinum toxin, plague and SEBs.

Universal Detection Technology's counter terrorism and security solutions, including the company's flagship real-time anthrax detector (BSM-2000), have applications for government agencies, defense contractors, security companies, postal facilities, etc.
