Bioterrorism Detection Kits Being Marketed to Canada for Winter Olympics

Universal Detection Technology : 10 February, 2010  (New Product)
Universal Detection Technology is aiming to supply the Canadian 2010 Winter Olympics with 5-agent detection kits for revealing bioterrorism threats
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 announced that through its agreement with US Department of Commerce's Commercial Service, the company is promoting its handheld assays, used for detection of up to five bioterrorism agents, in Canada. UNDT is to be listed as a Featured US Exporter on Commercial Service's Canada website. Canada is the host of the 2010 Winter Olympics.


UNDT's 5-agent bioterrorism detection kits have been used extensively by first responders and private industry throughout the United States. Testing of the kits by the US DoD as well as the United Kingdom military show that the kits demonstrate no cross-reactivity with near neighbor species and no false positives with commonly encountered 'white powders'. The kits are designed to test for anthrax, botulinum toxin, Ricin, plague (Y. Pestis) and SEBs in as little as three minutes.

"We've maintained a solid, growing relationship with the US Department of Commerce, and have worked with them to expand our bio-weapons detection equipment offerings in many international markets, including France and South Korea; this listing with the US Commerce Department gives us the opportunity to continue that growth in Canada, site of the 2010 Winter Olympics," said Universal Detection Technology CEO Jacques Tizabi. "UNDT also supplied its radiation detection equipment for the protection of sports venues at the 2009 Olympics in Beijing," continued Tizabi.
