CORTE MADERA, Calif. -- Smart-tek Solutions Inc. plans to expand into the United States with its RTAC-PM system to help monitor the movement of poultry to limit the risk of infection with H5N1 avian influenza virus.



The RTAC-PM system was designed for the livestock industry and is targeted specifically for the poultry industry with user-defined alerts that may help governmental agencies monitor poultry movement. The RTAC-PM system incorporates leading-edge technology and is customized around customers' requirements with the flexibility to adapt to various types of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) products.



"The reception our system has received since we introduced it in China has been simply overwhelming," said Perry Law, president of Smart-tek Communications Inc. "We have received numerous requests for additional information on our avian flu containment system from many different organizations and companies located around the world, including many from the United States.



"Even though the bird flu has yet to appear in the United States, the H5N1 virus is such a grave economic concern that proactive measures need to be implemented, and we believe that our avian flu containment system would be a great tool in this process," Law said.



The United States has the opportunity to be proactive regarding avian influenza and implement checks and balances before the bird flu spreads to its flocks to limit the potential damages, Law said. "We believe that we can be a part of their solution."
