Defentect, Washington Hospital Center Announce Expansion Agreement for Radiation Detection System
Date:8/25/2009

NORWALK, Conn., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Defentect (OTC Bulletin Board: SLNH) announced today Washington Hospital Center is deploying Defentect's radiation detection system hospital-wide following a pilot project to test its effectiveness, with an additional nine GT2(TM) radiation sensors and two GT4(TM) Gamma Radiation sensors, capable of isotopic identification. The fixed position unattended sensors are networked to Defentect's proprietary DM3(TM) management, monitoring and messaging software platform, which integrates CBRNE detection technologies with an incident command center and coordinates responses according to an engineered concept of operations.

"This deployment enhances our ability to respond quickly and effectively in the event of a radiological incident. We look forward to assessing and reporting on the benefits of this comprehensive detection system" said Susan K. Eckert, Director, EROne Institute for Innovation and Nursing Readiness, Washington Hospital Center.

"In a security scenario unique to hospitals, Defentect is configured to monitor for ingress of radiologically contaminated patients from accidental exposure or via planned terrorist attack, as well as illicit egress of radiological materials housed on premise and intended for use in patient therapies; these materials could become components of a dirty bomb," said Frank O'Connor, president, Defentect. "Our sensors enable real-time isotope identification and can be set to ignore medical or benign environmental isotopes to prevent triggering innocent positives. When threat-level alerts are triggered, Defentect's DM3 sends information to hospital responders' cell phones, pagers, PDAs and to existing access control and surveillance security systems.
