Bio-Terrorism Protection for Los Angeles District With UNDT's 5-Agent Detection Kit

Universal Detection Technology : 10 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Universal Detection Technology is supplying the Fire Brigade in the city of Burbank with detection kits designed to quickly identify bio-terrorism agents at the scene of an incident
Universal Detection Technology has received a purchase order from the City of Burbank Fire Department for its bioterrorism detection equipment. The purchase order includes orders for UNDT's 5-agent detection kits.


The City of Burbank, located north of downtown Los Angeles, has a population of 105,000 and is home to several major Hollywood studios such as ABC, NBC, Nickelodeon, The Walt Disney Company, and Warner Bros. The Bob Hope Airport, which services 4.9 million travellers per year, is also located in the City of Burbank.

The order was placed in the wake of independent congressional report admonishing the US government for failing to respond to the growing, serious threat of bioterrorism.

The report, issued in January by the bipartisan Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, gave the government a "F" letter grade for failure to "enhance the nation's capabilities for rapid response to prevent biological attacks from inflicting mass casualties."

"The order from the Burbank Fire Department and the recent order from the US Army indicate the growing awareness of the threat of bioterrorism within the first responder community," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Our goal is to continue to supply first responders and the military with the most advanced, high-performance bioagent detection equipment available in the market," continued Tizabi.
