US Invests in Bio-Terrorism Detection After Criticism in Report

Universal Detection Technology : 05 March, 2010  (Application Story)
Commission Report on US Government response to the threat of bio-terrorism results in order from US Army for 5-agent bio-terrorism detection kits from Universal Detection Technology
Universal Detection Technology has received a purchase order from the US Army for its bioterrorism detection equipment. The purchase order includes orders for UNDT's 5-agent detection kits as well as equipment for the detection of Ricin and Staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB).


The order was placed in the wake of an independent congressional report admonishing the US government for failing to respond to the growing, serious threat of bioterrorism.

The report, issued in January by the bipartisan Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferation and Terrorism, gave the government an "F" letter grade for failure to "enhance the nation's capabilities for rapid response to prevent biological attacks from inflicting mass casualties."

"We are proud to be a supplier to the US Army and to be a repeat vendor," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "We will continue to market our bioterror detection equipment to all government organizations and we will continue to expand the range of anti-terror products that we offer," continued Tizabi.
