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, with live training kit demos at Milipol Paris 2009.

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.

The equipment's capacities feature the following:

* No cross-reactivity with near neighbour strains
* No cross-reactivity to household powders
* No set up time
* No expensive reader needed
* No decontamination requirements
* No false positives
* No false negatives
* No hook effect

Universal Detection Technology will showcase its TS-10-5-agent bio-detection kit with live and taped demonstrations in the US Pavilion, 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.
