LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect against biological, chemical, radiological, and nuclear (CBRN) threats, announced today that it will market the Company's radiation detection technologies in Japan through its agreement with the US Department of Commerce's Commercial Service. UNDT will be listed as a Featured US Exporter on Commercial Service's Japanese website.

The Company's listing now includes nuclear detection and monitoring devices that include electronic dosimetry and teledosimetry devices. In addition to electronic dosimetry and teledosimetry, other best-in-breed solutions include contamination and clearance applications, personnel and vehicle/cargo gateway monitors and portable survey meters. The Company also provides innovative passive dosimetry systems for measurement of cumulative radiation exposures. UNDT's dosimeters can be used by both professionals and non-trained personnel, as they are passive devices. Product Lines Include:

  • Active Dosimetry, Teledosimetry and Portable Instruments

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported yesterday that radioactivity has been released directly into the atmosphere from the Unit 4 reactor at Japan's Fukushima Daiichi plant. The agency quoted Japanese authorities as saying: "The spent fuel storage pond at the Unit 4 reactor of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is on fire and radioactivity is being released directly into the atmosphere." Elevated radiation levels have been detected in as far south as Tokyo.

"In light of the nuclear disaster in Japan and radiation release, we are working closely with the US Department of Commerce to market our Radiological Detection Equipment in Japan," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO. "We hope to get our products into first responders' hands in Japan as soon as possible to help in their daunting task of containing radiation from the damaged reactors," he added.
