Universal Detection Technology Receives Repeat Order for Biodetection Training Equipment by Leading Retailer of Athletic Apparel

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT) (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, announced today that it has received a repeat order for its Biodetection training equipment by a leading retailer of athletic apparel. Due to confidentiality concerns UNDT cannot reveal the purchaser's name.

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

UNDT's simulation/Trainer equipment and threat simulation powders are designed to mimic a bio-threat event that illustrates all potential outcomes of the 5-agent test device. The 5-agent testing kit is designed to test for Anthrax, Ricin, Botulinum Toxin, Plague and SEBs in as little as 3 minutes.

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