Beverly Hills, California-based Universal Detection Technology, a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies of bioterrorism and infectious health threats, has reached an agreement with Beijing-based Kadinuo Science and Technology to market and distribute UDTT’s products in China. Kadinuo Science and Technology has been active in introduction and promotion of advanced radiation instruments in the Chinese market for more than years. The company is a strong regional supplier of emergency nuclear monitors, environmental radiation monitors, decontamination technologies, and similar products. UDTT’s BSM-2000 and other bioterrorism and radiation detection technologies should complement the current line of Kadinuo’s products and services. Kadinuo has established relationships with more than 200 customers in China including government administrators, such as the Chinese State Environmental Protection Administration, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of China, and the Public Security Bureau.

China is a vast market and the fastest growing economy in the world. We are excited about our agreement with a major regional power for distribution of our products and we look forward to establishing a strong market in China,” said Jacques Tizabi, UDTT’s CEO.

We also note that UDT has been invited to present the technology utilized in its BSM-2000 Anthrax Detection System to the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC). ECBC is the U.S. main research and development center for nonmedical chemical and biological defense. ECBC develops technology in the areas of detection, protection, and decontamination and provides support over the entire lifecycle, from basic research through technology development, engineering design, equipment evaluation, product support, sustainment, field operations, and disposal.
