Universal Detection Technology Receives Purchase Order for MRSA Germicide From Quiznos Restaurant Franchise

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - Universal Detection Technology ( (OTCBB: UDTT) (FRANKFURT: P08), a developer and provider of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and radiological weapons, announced today that it has received a purchase order for its licensed MRSA Germicide from a Quiznos restaurant franchise. The product is an anti-microbial solution designed to kill over 99.99% of microbes it comes in contact with including the deadly MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus). UDTT begin marketing the anti-microbial solution earlier this month though a partnership with EMME consulting.

The anti-microbial solution uses a composite of titanium dioxide containing sparing soluble silver chloride that inhibits microbe multiplication thus reducing their populations. Extensive studies show that surfaces treated with the solution remain sterile for days after sterilization. The solution is designed to kill 99.99% of microbes including MRSA.

"The purchase order from Quiznos indicates that there is a concern in the restaurant industry on the recent spread of MRSA infections," said Jacques Tizabi, UDTT's Chief Executive Officer. "There have been numerous cases of MRSA infection in schools and hospitals accordingly restaurants need to take the necessary precautions and protect their customers," he added.

According to Doctors at the University of Chicago Hospital, 65 percent of the staphylococcus infections coming into emergency rooms in otherwise healthy kids are MRSA. Moreover, the MRSA is resistant to anywhere from 15 to 30 different antibiotics. That means when it's detected, a doctor has only a very small number of compounds at hand that are able to kill it. Recent reports also indicate a rise in the levels of MRSA infections in schools and colleges.
