Implant Sciences, an innovative technology distributor of sensors and systems for homeland security, has declared the first sale of the company’s Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 detector identifying trace explosives into Germany by the D-Tec System Consulting, the Hamburg-based distributor of the company.
The Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 explosives trace detector is a portable device that functions based on ion mobility spectrometry (IMS), which vigorously identifies and detects trace quantities of a wide range of commercial, homemade, and military explosives. The QS-H150 does not use any radioactive material, its novel self-clearing and self-calibrating design requires minimal maintenance and offers increased operational availability. Another detector, the quantum sniffer QS-B220 can detect and identify narcotic substances in addition to the detection of explosives.
The QS-H150 explosives trace detector will be employed in a completely novel security application. First Class Zollservice, the company’s German customer, plans to provide the service of detecting the explosives to air freight forwarders on a fee-per-piece basis. The Quantum Sniffer detectors will be equipped in a vehicle that will travel to freight forwarding locations to provide the service of screening mobile air freight.
Glenn D. Bolduc, Implant sciences’ Chief Executive Officer and President, said that the company is proud of the flexibility, reliability and portability of the Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 detector, which ensures that the security providers are benefited with new cost-effective business solutions. Bolduc added that D-Tec System Consulting has been both innovative and effective in their German business.
