Implant Sciences Sells Two Explosive Detection Devices in Europe

A sensor and systems manufacturer catering to defense and security markets, Implant Sciences has declared that the Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 has found its way into the European market. Two new customers have purchased the units for its deployment in school and bank facilities.




One portable QS-H150 explosive trace detection device will be used for training purposes at an international explosives ordinance disposal (EOD) school and the second unit will be deployed in a European bank.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of Implant Sciences, Glenn D Bolduc stated that protection of financial bodies is essential given the current political and economic climate of the world. The QS-H150 ensures high security for both public infrastructures and private buildings. The detector has already been deployed in federal facilities, stock exchanges and hotels.

Under the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology Act of 2002, the US Department of Homeland Security has provided the designation of a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology to the QS-H150. It is a highly sensitive detector that is capable of detecting parts-per-trillion levels of explosives vapor along with nanogram levels of explosives.

Implant Sciences launched the QS-B220 Quantum Sniffer in May 2011. Developed to detect trace amounts of narcotics and explosives, the QS-B220, a radioactive-free detector can trace a variety of homemade, improvised, commercial and military grade narcotics and explosives. It offers a low total ownership cost and is highly efficient. The QS-H150 hand-held trace detector for explosives uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry to identify and detect trace amounts of explosives. It is a low maintenance, self-clearing and self-calibrating device that is also devoid of any radioactive material and offers high operational availability.
