LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/01/12 -- Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies that protect against biological, chemical, and radiological threats, today issued an update on the development of the Smartphone compatible radiation detector. UNDT is developing the device through an agreement with Honeywell International. The product is designed to detect radiation levels on surfaces and food and to automatically send the collected data to a smartphone through a user-friendly application, specifically designed to be used with the instrument.
The device will measure elevated levels of gamma radiation and transmit that data to a Bluetooth-ready smartphone. The dedicated smartphone app in development by the Company will give the user the ability to use simple menu-driven features to test for radiation in food, surfaces or clothing and subsequently share the accumulated data with other users through a mapping and social networking features.
The instrument in development will utilize a Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator for the detection of Gamma rays. With the detection range of 0.001 to 9.999 µSv/h the device will be capable of detecting traces of radiation on surfaces, clothing and in particular food contamination.
Nuclear experts have concerns regarding contamination of farmland close to the Fukushima Daaichi. Japan produces a total of 8.5 million tons of rice with Fukushima and neighboring Ibaraki, Miyagi and Iwate prefectures amounting to 1.56 million metric tons per year. Rice from more than 400 locations in Fukushima Prefecture has been tested, and levels of radioactive cesium were detected. Some experts have criticized the Japanese government for not doing enough to keep dangerous radioactive substances out of the food supply, threatening the health especially of children and pregnant women, who are thought to be more sensitive to radiation.
"We are very pleased with the level of progress on the development of the detector," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's President and CEO. "Both the detector and app are being developed with the end user in mind as we are creating a device that will be unique in the radiation detection industry," he added.
