Universal Detection Technology Signs Agreement for Radiation Detection Distribution in Japan


3/22/2011 8:23:08 AM

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies that protect against biological, chemical, and radiological threats, announced today that it has signed an agreement for radiation detection distribution in Japan. Precision Technologies PTD, will give UNDT an on the ground marketing presence in Japan.

Concerns over food contaminated by radiation from areas surrounding the troubled nuclear plant in Fukushima spread beyond Japan's borders on Monday morning, with world health officials warning of the potential dangers posed by the tainted food.

World Health Organization officials told reporters Monday that Japan should act quickly to ban food sales from areas around the damaged nuclear plant, saying radiation in food is more dangerous than radioactive particles in the air because of accumulation in the human body.

"Walking outside for a day and eating food repeatedly are two different things. This is why they're going to have to take some decisions quickly in Japan to shut down and stop food being used completely from zones which they feel might be affected," WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said, according to the Associated Press.

Universal Detection Technology supplies nuclear detection and monitoring systems 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
  • Contamination and Clearance
  • Passive Dosimetry Systems

"Through our agreement with Precision Technologies we can directly market our radiation detection products to individuals and agencies in Japan and help in protecting people from radiation exposure as soon as possible," said Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO.
