Patent granted on bioterrorism detection system

Universal Detection Technology : 29 July, 2009  (New Product)
Universal Detection Technology's automated anthrax detection system has been granted a US patent
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 been granted a patent from the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its automated airborne anthrax detection system. The patent is the company's second for technology licensed by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech).

Titled "Apparatus and Method for Automated Monitoring of Bacterial Spores," the invention has been filed under USPTO number US 7,563,615 B2 and describes an apparatus and method for automated monitoring of airborne bacterial spores.

"Universal Detection Technology's second patent on its licensed technology is another step forward in providing critical counter-bioterrorism equipment to organizations in the public, commercial and private sectors," said Universal Detection Technology CEO Jacques Tizabi. "This distinction will allow us to continue to bolster our intellectual property rights in the US and abroad."

The granted patent supplements the patent granted to the company in 2007 by providing intellectual property rights for the automated detection of airborne bacterial spores. Universal Detection Technology's BSM-2000 utilizes both technologies in its monitoring of airborne hazards.

The apparatus is provided with an air sampler, a surface for capturing bacterial spores, a source of lanthanide ions, and a spectrometer for excitation and detection of the characteristic fluorescence of the aromatic molecules in bacterial spores complexed with lanthanide ions. In accordance with the method, computer-programmed steps allow for automation of the apparatus for the monitoring of airborne bacterial spores.
