Universal Detection Technology (UNDT.OB), a developer of monitoring technologies, including bioterrorism detection devices, announced that the company is working with the U.S. Department of Commerce to promote its anthrax and other bioterrorism detection equipment in China. Universal Detection Technology is a reseller of handheld assays used for detection of five bioterrorism agents, radiation detection systems and antimicrobial products.

The company’s five-agent bioterrorism detection kits have been extensively used by first responders and private industries throughout the United States. In fact, testing by the U.S. Department of Defense shows that the kits demonstrate no cross-reactivity or false positives with commonly encountered “white powders.”

Universal Detection Technology is now listed as a featured U.S. exporter on Commercial Service’s China website. Jacques Tizabi, Universal Detection Technology’s chairman and chief executive officer, stated, “We were suppliers of both radiological and biological weapon detection equipment for the Beijing Olympics and the Department of Commerce listing gives us the opportunity to further penetrate the Chinese market.”
