Universal Detection in Spanish marketing deal

Published 22 February 2006

Beverly Hills, California-based Universal Detection Technology (OTCBB: UDTT) (FWB:PO8), a developer of monitoring bioterrorism and other infectious health technologies, has entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with COTELSA, a Spain-based importer and distributor of security systems, to sell and distribute UDTT’s bacterial spore monitors in Spain. The terms of the deal call for COTELSA to purchase one of UDTT’s advanced airborne anthrax detectors for demonstration and training purposes. The agreement will serve UDTT’s strategic goals of expanding its presence in Europe and, more generally, in the international security and counter-terrorism marketplace.

Universal Detection has developed bacterial spore detectors in collaboration with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The technology is based on a chemical identification process created by JPL’s Planetary Protection Unit. The device provides continuous and unattended detection of bacterial spores. If an elevated spore count is detected, an alarm notifies internal security on site as well as local emergency services via the device’s landline or wireless networking capability.
