Universal Detection Technology's Smartphone Compatible Radiation Detection Device Featured in the Los Angeles Business Journal

Radiological Threat Detection and Decontamination Agencies Focus Attention on Universal Detection Technology's Monitoring Hardware (February 07, 2012)

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/12 -- Universal Detection Technology (OTCBB: UNDT), a leading developer and reseller of biological, chemical, and radiation detection equipment, is the subject of a recent article in the Los Angeles Business Journal.

Focusing specifically on public fears resulting from last year's earthquake and nuclear disaster in Japan, the article notes a sharply increased market for radiation detection devices. "A spate of large-scale disasters in recent years has added to worldwide demand for portable detection devices that monitor environmental hazards," says Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Analysts see a growing market for such products and services in a world perceived to be increasingly dangerous in terms of not only radiological but also biological and chemical threats."

Most of the firm's customers are security companies and government agencies. The Company also sells directly to end users through its website.

A new smartphone compatible radiation detector that the company is developing through an agreement with Honeywell International is designed to register radiation levels in food, clothing or other surfaces and subsequently share the accumulated data electronically. The device will utilize a cesium iodide scintillator for the detection of gamma rays and have a 0.001 to 9.999 µSv/h detection range.


"Both the detector and user-friendly smartphone application are being developed with the objective of creating a state-of-the-art device unique in the radiation detection industry," adds Tizabi. "While the first generation will be working with Apple's iPhone, future generations will work with any designated Bluetooth-ready smartphone."

He notes that concerns over radioactive contamination in the Japanese food supply are driving sales for radiation detectors much as widely publicized anthrax attacks a decade earlier resulted in a continuing institutional demand for testing kits.

"The security concerns behind such demand are not likely to fade any time soon," says Tizabi.
