Universal Detection Technology Receives Central Contractor Registration

A CCR Is Required Prior to Being Awarded a Contract With Any Federal Government Agency

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 7, 2010) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats, and provider of counter-terrorism consulting and training services, announced today that it has received Central Contractor Registration from the U.S. Government.

The Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system is a highly secure, single repository of vendor data used government wide. A CCR registration is required prior to being awarded a contract with any federal government agency. The CCR also serves as a search engine for contracting officers, a marketing tool for small companies, and a link to procurement opportunities and other important information. It also provides links to the online Commerce Business Daily, federal agency home pages and other sources of procurement opportunities.

Universal Detection Technology's biological weapon detection equipment is used extensively by first responders and private industries throughout the country. The equipment, including UNDT's 5 agent biodetection kit certified by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, has been evaluated by the U.S. DoD as well as the United Kingdom military. UNDT is also a supplier of Chemical and Radiological/Nuclear Weapon detection equipment.

"The CCR was a necessary step for us in order to participate on federal bids for our CBRN detection equipment," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology.
