Universal Detection Technology Receives Repeat Order for Bio-Detection Kits by Leading Retailer of Athletic Apparel

The Kits Are Designed to Detect for 5 Agents, Including Anthrax and Ricin, in One Test

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Universal Detection Technology ( (OTCBB: UDTT) (FRANKFURT: PO8), 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, reported today that is has received a repeat order for its 5-agent bio-detection kits by a leading retailer of Athletic Apparel. Due to confidentiality concerns UDTT cannot reveal the purchasers name.

The Purchase order is very significant for the company as it shows new opportunities for the Company as a crossover from strict homeland security use to commercial/civilian use. Increasingly larger companies are handling some aspects of CBRNE defense and prevention in-house, thus mitigating costly delays when first responders have to be called.

UDTT's 5-agent bio-detection kit is the most rapid and accurate test of its kind in the market. The kits test for 5 lethal agents: anthrax, ricin, botulinum toxin, plague, and SEBs in one test and results can be seen in as little as three minutes. The kits have also been evaluated by the U.S. Department of Defense.

UDTT's counter terrorism and security solutions, including Company's flagship real time anthrax detector (BSM-2000), have applications for government agencies, defense contractors, security companies, postal facilities, warehouses, and the like.

"The repeat order from this Company for our bio-detection kits shows the faith put in our superior product. We will continue to actively market our portfolio of CBRN prevention equipment to the civilian market," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UDTT's Chief Executive Officer.
