Implant Sciences Corporation, a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced today that it has sold its QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detectors to a leading air cargo services provider, which provides TSA Certified Cargo Screening.
"The air cargo services providers are looking for new technologies to improve their operational capabilities and reduce operating costs," stated Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones. "They view the QS-B220 as an integral component of this strategy, citing low cost of ownership, automatic calibration, ease of use and remote diagnostic capabilities. The value proposition offered by Implant Sciences is far superior to competing explosives trace technologies, coupled with highly customer focused aftermarket support are critical attributes to the decision makers."
"Our technology, which truly is the new standard in trace detection, continues to be recognized by freight forwarders for its operational and cost advantages," commented Implant Sciences' Chief Executive Officer, Glenn D. Bolduc. "The needs of air cargo screening facilities were one of our prime considerations when we built the QS-B220. It's exciting to see our ideas validated by an industry leader."
