Universal Detection Patent for Bacterial Spore Detection Technology Allowed by the European Patent Office
Monday, May 21, 2007
Los Angeles, CA -- Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UDTT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and a provider of counter-terrorism training and solutions, today announced that claims filed at the European Patent Office for the core technology of the BSM-2000, bacterial spore monitor, were allowed. This allowance will lead to the protection of UDTT's technology in up to 37 European countries.
"The allowance of the patent reduces our concerns over patent infringement in Europe," said Amir Ettehadieh, Director of Research and Development of Universal Detection Technology. "Our first sale of the BSM-2000 system was to the Government of the U.K., and we now plan to launch a more aggressive marketing campaign in Europe," he added.
BSM-2000 is UDTT's line of real-time bacterial spore detectors co-developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The device is used to monitor the air continuously and to sound an alarm if elevated levels of spores such as anthrax are detected. UDTT holds an international exclusive license to the detection technology deployed in BSM-2000.
