Universal Detection Technology Reports Record Annual Revenues Since Entering Bio-Defense Field

Company Reports Results for Year 2006

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 16, 2007 -- (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UDTT) -- Universal Detection Technology is pleased to announce today that its annual revenues for the year ending December 31, 2006 jumped to their highest level in five years at $111,515.00. In the previous year, the Company had no revenues from the sale of its devices. Furthermore, due to increased revenue and significant cost-cutting measures, the loss per share decreased to $0.03 per share from $0.07 per share. The 2006 Net loss was calculated on a weighted average of 86,650,120 shares outstanding. The revenue was derived primarily from the sale off Anthrax Detection Systems. The company now counts the United States Army, The British Government, and other defense firms as customers for its bioterrorism defense products.

"We are very pleased to have begun revenue recognition from the sale of our BSM-2000 anthrax detection systems for the first year since we began development of our anthrax monitors," stated Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Having a record year like this one is a significant milestone for this company as we continue to market our counter-terrorism products and services."

BSM-2000 is UDTT's line of real-time bacterial spore detectors co-developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The device is used to monitor the air continuously and to sound an alarm if elevated levels of spores such as anthrax are detected. UDTT holds an international exclusive license to the detection technology deployed in BSM-2000. The Company recently sold two units of BSM-2000 to the government of the UK and has begun marketing training videos related to emergency planning and preparedness and countering WMD threats.
