A supplier of high technology sensors and systems for homeland security based markets, Implant Sciences has announced that it will test its bench-top explosives and narcotics trace nd detector, the Quantum Sniffer QS-B220.
This decision was announced after Implant Sciences signed agreements with important end-user sites in Asia, U.S and South America. The detector has been designed for deployment in the operational environments of both air cargo and airport security screening facilities.
The QS-B220, which was launched in the month of May this year, is capable of identifying and detecting even trace amounts of military, home-made, improvised or commercial explosives and narcotics by using Ion Mobility Spectrometry. The detector is devoid of radioactive material.
The Chief Executive Officer of Implant Sciences, Glenn D Bolduc stated that since the QS-B220 is environmentally safe due to lack of radioactive substances, it can be used to screen cargo and passengers without any environmental or health risks.
The Vice President of Product Development at Implant Sciences, Todd Silvestri added that with features like high throughput, automatic calibration and low maintenance requirement, the QS-B220 detector surpasses the TSA requirements and is suitable for security screening.
