Universal Detection Technology Has Received Purchase Order and Subsequently Shipped Radiation Detectors to a Major Japanese Telecommunications Company

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - Universal Detection Technology ( (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer and supplier of early-warning monitoring technologies that protect against biological, chemical, and radiological threats, announced today that it has received purchase order and subsequently shipped radiation detection equipment to a major Japanese telecommunications company. Items range from personal dosimeters to survey meters and isotope identifiers. The majority of the products pursuant to this order have been shipped and the remainder is expected to be delivered before the end of the third quarter of 2011.

UNDT continues to get orders for dosimetry systems (used for measurement of cumulative radiation exposure), advanced survey meters, surface monitors (used in detection of contamination on surfaces and in particular in food and water), and isotope identifiers that not only detect but also identify the isotope that has been detected.

Recently, beef from cattle in Japan that ate straw tainted by radiation has found its way into the food supply, deepening concern about the safety of meat as Japan struggles to contain the spread of the contamination.

"Recent reports are beginning to show the widespread contamination caused by the Fukushima disaster," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO. "We will continue to supply our products through all available channels to the people of Japan in an effort to provide assistance in these difficult times. We also extend our offer of a discount on all our radiation detection equipment to first-time customers who donate any amount to the Red Cross relief efforts through our website."
