Universal Detection Technology strikes Southeast Asian Distribution Deal

Universal Detection Technology : 11 February, 2010  (Company News)
Biological Threat Detection Equipment of the emergency services to be distributed in South East Asia by WellCrown to combat rising regional threat of bioterrorism
Universal Detection Technology, a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats, and provider of counter-terrorism consulting and training services, has entered into a distribution agreement with WellCrown International Resources. WellCrown International Resources will act as UNDT's sole agent and distributor in Malaysia with the option of expanding the distribution network to Hong Kong and China.


The Malaysian government has been combating terrorists for the past decade; in particular the Al-Qaeda affiliated Jemaah Islamiayah, which was responsible for the Bali bombings. Malaysian officials believe it is a matter of time before terrorists revert to using bio-weapons as a terror tool as other Southeast Asian terrorists groups, such as Abu Sayaf, are known to have the capability to produce anthrax.

WellCrown International Resources is a leading international supplier of sophisticated defense and security solutions and high-grade natural resources, as well as a diverse range of integrated services. The company is managed by a team of professionals with vast product knowledge and extensive service experience in relevant fields.

Universal Detection Technology's biological weapon detection equipment is used extensively by first responders and private industry throughout the country. The equipment, including UNDT's 5 agent biodetection kit certified by the US Department of Homeland Security has been evaluated by the US DoD as well as the United Kingdom military. UNDT also supplied its radiation detection equipment for the protection of sports venues at the 2009 Olympics in Beijing.

"Our distribution agreement with WellCrown is part of our plan to continue to expand our presence internationally, especially to countries that are highly susceptible to terrorist acts," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "From the report we saw last week from the US Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, security experts contend that bioweapons unleashed by terrorist groups should be the chief concern for our national security; we will adequately prepare public and private entities worldwide to address this critical issue," continued Tizabi.
