(LOS ANGELES - Oct. 7, 2005) -- Universal Detection Technology (OTCBB:UDTT)(FWB:PO8), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats, has signed a non-exclusive distribution agreement with SecurityPro USA, a leading security services agency. Under the terms of the agreement, SecurityPro USA will use its efforts to promote the marketing and distribution of the BSM-2000 in the United States. Management believes that its relationship with SecurityPro USA will increase the visibility of its bioterrorism detection device to a receptive audience, including both commercial and governmental entities.
"We are planning to work very closely with SecurityPro USA to help bring our products and technologies to those who need real time, early detection and warning capabilities in the event of an anthrax attack," said Nima Montazeri, UDTT's Vice President of Strategic Development. "We will leverage SecurityPro's varied distribution channels, including its website and other extensive marketing resources, to promote our monitoring and detection technologies to potential customers in a range of marketplaces, such as office buildings, shopping malls, medical facilities, government agencies and others who may need them. Given the current heightened state of alert and potential for a bioterrorist attack, our spore monitoring technology and advanced anthrax warning system could be of significant value to many potential new customers."
UDTT is the developer of an anthrax monitoring solution, the BSM-2000. This bioterrorism monitoring device combines advanced spore detection technology developed by NASA for space exploration, and licensed exclusively to UDTT, with the Company's aerosol capture technology. SecurityPro provides consultation and solutions for commercial, industrial and residential customers and is an established protection service resource within the security and defense community. It is a state-of-the-art protection services agency designed to maintain a desired level of security in any given situation. SecurityPro combines conventional and unconventional methods of addressing security problems and investigative needs to arrive at optimal results. The Company's services include the use of discreet hardware such as video monitoring systems, alarms, access control and fire detection. UDTT's management believes that SecurityPro's customers would potentially be interested in UDTT's BSM-2000 line of bacterial spore detectors.
