TV broadcast of BioSentry detection equipment

JMAR Technologies : 28 January, 2009  (New Product)
Water testing system for the detection of biological threats to be discussed on US television news programme discussing bioterrorism
JMAR's award-winning laser-based BioSentry, the only commercialised, EPA tested, online system for real-time detection of pathogens in water, will be featured in a Los Angeles area television newscast.

Mr Bob Tarlau, Emmy award winning journalist and senior producer for KTTV (FOX 11), interviewed JMAR's senior management and their chief bio-detection research scientist. KTTV broadcasts cover the second largest television market in the nation.

US water distribution systems are potential terrorist targets due to the critical need for clean water in all sectors of society. A terrorist attack that contaminates a public or private municipal water system will cause devastating economic and public health consequences. As a high tech counter to bioterrorism, BioSentry can help prevent economic and political disruption, widespread sickness, and fatalities from contaminated water that goes undetected until it is too late. It is important to remember the following:

* If preventive measures are not taken, the next bio-terrorist attack will not be a question of 'if,' but 'when.'
* Standard methods can take hours or days to discover an attack. BioSentry can detect harmful pathogens in real-time.
* Rapid detection can mean the difference between a failed bio attack or an epidemic with hundreds of thousands of illnesses and deaths.
* The best 'first-response' is the one that never needs to be taken.

"Every water municipality in the country must be responsible for ensuring the safety of the public against a bio-terrorist attack," said JMAR's Chief Executive Officer, Neil Beer, PhD. "If we have the technology to prevent widespread illness, we need to ask the Department of Homeland Security, 'Why aren't we using it?' Let's be proactive and equip our communities with proven and affordable technology to save lives."

Frost & Sullivan recognised JMAR's BioSentry as the leading innovative approach to water quality monitoring in their 2008 Biological Detection Product of the Year Award.
