Universal Detection Technology's Radiation Detection Equipment to Be Marketed in Japan and Singapore Pursuant to Distribution Agreement

UNDT's Radiation Detection Equipment Marketed in Japan and Singapore by APP Systems

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 14, 2011) - Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies that protect against biological, chemical, and radiological threats, announced today that it has signed an agreement with APP System Services (APP). APP will market UNDT's radiation detection devices in Japan and Singapore.

APP is a premier sales and service provider for high technology products, in biotech, environmental and defense industries. APP serves both the private and government sectors.

The most recent assessment of the radiation level in Japan is that it is officially equal to Chernobyl. Officials with the company that operates Japan's tsunami-stricken nuclear plant say radioactive contamination in groundwater underneath a reactor has been measured at 10,000 times the government health standard. A spokesman for plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co says the company doesn't believe any drinking water supply is affected. Contaminated water has been pooling at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex since it was damaged by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. It has already leaked into the ocean.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported today that low levels of radiation have turned up in milk samples from two West Coast states. The EPA and the Food and Drug Administration said that radiation was found in a March 25 milk sample from Spokane, Washington. The California Department of Public Health said on its website that a similar result was found March 28 at a dairy in San Luis Obispo County.

"Through our agreement with APP System Services we plan to make our radiation detection products available to a broad market in Japan and Singapore," said Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chairman and CEO. "APP will use its sales force to market UNDT's radiation detection devices to both the government and private sectors. While there has been a rush by consumers to quickly purchase hand-held dosimeters, most of which are currently in very short supply by us and other suppliers, there continues to be an interest from institutional customers for more sophisticated detection equipment which we hope to be able to provide not necessarily in the immediate present, but throughout the length of this crisis," he added.
