Website Allows Organizations as Well as Individuals to Upload Radiation Level Readings

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 23, 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 entered into collaboration with rdnt.org to track radiation levels in Japan. Approved individuals as well as organizations armed with radiation detection devices are helping chart radiation readings across Japan as the country struggles to avoid a nuclear catastrophe.

Earlier today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said it will halt imports of dairy products and produce from the area of Japan where a nuclear reactor is leaking radiation. The FDA said Tuesday that those foods will be detained at entry and will not be sold to the public. The agency previously had said it would just step up screening of those foods.

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

"Our collaboration with RDTN.Org allows individuals in Japan to have easy access to our products as well as data on radiation levels all over Japan," said Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO. "The data will allow them to make timely decisions regarding the purchase of detectors," he added.
