Universal Detection Technology to Exhibit Its Radiation Detection Devices at the RISCON Security and Trade Expo in Tokyo, Japan

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 30, 2011) - Universal Detection Technology ( (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies that protect against biological, chemical, and radiological threats, announced today that it will participate in the RISCON Security and Trade Expo in Tokyo, Japan due to be held on October 19-21, 2011. UNDT will display the full array of its Radiation Detection Devices as well as its bio-weapon and chemical weapon detection equipment.

The RISCON Safety and Trade Expo will feature over 283 exhibitors specializing in the security and safety fields and is sponsored by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the National Police Agency and the Fire and Disaster Management Agency.

UNDT plans to display the full array of its Radiation Detection Devices. These include dosimeter systems used for measurement of cumulative radiation exposures and advanced survey meters and surface monitors used in detection of contamination on surfaces and in particular food and water.

On August 27, 2011, the Japanese government warned that areas surrounding Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant could remain uninhabitable for decades due to high radiation, as it struggles to clean up after the world's worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl. In a meeting with local officials, the government estimated it could take more than 20 years before residents could safely return to areas with current radiation readings of 200 millisieverts per year, and a decade for areas at 100 millisieverts per year.

"Recent reports from Japan indicate that the radiation leakage from the Fukushima Plant will affect the surrounding areas for decades to come," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO. "Our participation at the 2011 RISCON Expo in Tokyo will allow us to introduce our radiation detection devices to both the government agencies involved with disaster relief and private industry and individuals concerned with exposure to radiation," he added.
