Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced the sale of Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detectors to a major international airport in the European Union for use in air cargo screening.
The Company has been serving the aviation security market since 2007 and to date has delivered hundreds of units to customers in 17 countries across 4 continents.
"In a competitive situation, our QS-B220s were selected by the customer because of the system's non-radioactive source and its ease-of-use. Many countries in the European Union have strict laws surrounding the use of radioactive materials. The QS-B220 is the only TSA-approved trace detector that does not incorporate radioactive isotopes," stated Dr. Darryl Jones, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
The QS-B220's large color display and intuitive touch-screen interface minimize training requirements for security personnel using the systems. The systems' ease-of-use has been cited time and again in customer evaluations.
