Universal Detection Technology and Winvale, a Provider of GSA Contracting Services, Enter Into Government Marketing Alliance

Through the Alliance, UDT Will Provide CBRN Equipment to All Sectors of Government: Federal, State and Local Government

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 18, 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, announced today that it has entered into a government marketing alliance with Winvale. Through the alliance, UNDT plans to market its catalog of CBRN detection equipment to all sectors of the government. The alliance will be for both GSA Schedule Contracting and Intensive targeted marketing towards relevant agencies.

UNDT's products are listed on GSA Schedule GS-07F-0106V for equipment used in the detection of biological weapons such as anthrax, ricin, botulinum, and plague as well as Radiation Detection Equipment. However, in the coming months, UNDT plans to add more products to the schedule, used to battle new bioterror threats, as well as other forms of health hazards.

Winvale brings a perspective to GSA Schedule Contracting and marketing that no other consultancy in the marketplace can provide -- that is, practical, real-world guidance and support. Winvale's participative approach ensures that its partners achieve a GSA Schedule contract with contract terms and requirements that are transparent to maintain pricing and margins with flexibility, and a government sales effort that is sustainable and exceed expectations. UNDT and Winvale have partnered and UNDT was subsequently awarded a GSA contract to provide radiation detection devices to the U.S. Air Force through its listing with Winvale.

Some other Security firms working with Winvale include, Northrop Grumman, ICX, and Rapiscan.

To be an approved supplier under a GSA schedule, a vendor must go through an arduous application process. Negotiating fair and reasonable prices for the products or services to be delivered is the most important aspect of application process. The GSA schedule is one of the most simplified and widely accepted government contract vehicles available to procurement officers. The GSA schedule is a five-year contract listing the prices the federal government has agreed to pay for a vendor's commercial products and services. The contract may be renewed for three five-year periods resulting in a 20-year contract if all renewals are executed.

"There has been a profound increase in the discussion of the Bioterror threat from biological weapons such as the recent report of unsecured biolabs in Uganda that store some of the most lethal pathogens, including Anthrax," said Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology. "Through our alliance with Winvale we plan to market our equipment to the government and to facilitate the process of purchasing our equipment by their Government agencies," continued Tizabi.
