LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., 7 Aug. 2007.The U.S. Army Space & Missile Defense Command (USASMD) has placed an additional order for E-Z-EM Inc.'s RSDL personal skin decontamination product. The approximately $8 million order is the second order placed by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) since it issued Milestone C approval for the product, and is the largest single order for RSDL the company has received to date.
RSDL is a patented, broad spectrum skin decontamination product intended to remove or neutralize chemical warfare (CW) agents or T2 toxins from the skin. RSDL was originally developed and patented by Defence Research and Development Canada, an agency within the Canadian Department of National Defence, for use by the Canadian Forces. RSDL is produced by EZEM under a License with Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). RSDL has since been adopted by several military services around the world.
