Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced it has sold its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detector to a customer in Africa for use in corporate security for a financial institution.
Some regions in Africa have experienced growing instability, with an increasing number of insurgencies and terrorist attacks, particularly on foreign interests. The response from security providers has been an increasing reliance on Quantum Sniffers to meet their security needs.
"Quantum Sniffers work consistently in difficult environments. In addition to the Quantum Sniffer's quality and consistent performance, customers in Africa are choosing our systems due its low-maintenance design and non-contact sampling, which enables a low total cost of ownership," stated Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones.
"We continue to expand our market share in Africa through our expanded sales force, our growing distribution network, and our increasing reputation of being the latest standard in explosives trace detection," added Glenn D. Bolduc, Implant Sciences' President and CEO.
