Global CFS, Inc. is a Certified Cargo Screening Facility with the Transportation Security Administration

"ETD is an important part of our ability to provide uncompromised security. Buying the QS-B220 gives us access to the most advanced technology while also reducing our maintenance and operation costs," stated Steve Panzarella Jr., President at Global CFS. "Additionally, the superior customer care and responsiveness of the Implant Sciences team has made them a joy to work with."

"The advantages of our QS-B220 make it a highly attractive alternative for facilities looking to replace previous generations of equipment, as our growing volume of sales demonstrates. We're very proud of our product's level of performance and the commitment to customer satisfaction that our entire sales and service team deliver. We look forward to the continued expansion of our presence in the market," commented Vice Sales and Marketing for Implant Sciences, Darryl Jones.
