Bio-terrorism detection kits on show at ASIS

Universal Detection Technology : 21 September, 2009  (New Product)
Detection kit for the emergency services provides the ability to recognise up to five bio-terrorism agents at the scene
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 be showcasing its TS-10-5-agent biodetection kit at ASIS International 2009 in Anaheim, California.

Universal Detection Technology's kits, recently certified by DHS as an "Approved Product for Homeland Security" under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act of 2002, 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.

"With the Senate bill introduced earlier this month that calls for strengthening security against the risk of a biological attack, Universal Detection Technology is prepared to meet the growing needs of domestic and international bioterrorism prevention and response," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Through this international gathering of security professionals, ASIS International 2009 is a perfect forum for demonstrating the easy implantation and cost effectiveness of these much-needed bioterrorism monitoring tools for first responders," said Tizabi.

Universal Detection Technology will showcase its TS-10-5-agent biodetection kit with live and taped demonstrations at booth #375 at the event, held on September 21-24, 2009 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Members of UDT's executive team, including R&D and business development, will be present to answer questions about the product and the company. After participating in the demonstration, visitors will also have a chance to win a biodetection kit for their agency or company.

Universal Detection Technology's biodetection kits have been used extensively by first responders, government agencies and private industry throughout the country. Recently, UDT received a contract from the U.S. Army to use the kits at an intelligence site. The company also signed a distribution pact with Strategic Response Initiatives.
