Implant Sciences Corporation, a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection (ETD) and drugs trace detection solutions for homeland security applications, announced today it has shipped a follow-on order for approximately $500,000 of its QS-B220 explosives trace detectors to Kuehne + Nagel, one of the worlds' leading logistics companies.
The QS-B220s will be deployed across a total of ten facilities for air cargo screening in the U.S. This order follows the customer's initial order in 2014.
"We were very pleased to receive this follow on order, which is more than twice the size of the first purchase by one of the largest logistics companies in the world. Based on feedback we've received from Kuehne +Nagel the factors driving their decision included the favorable low cost of maintenance for our systems, as compared with the competing systems being replaced by our QS-B220s. Remote diagnostics and push-button maintenance also reduced both down-time and maintenance expenses for our customer," stated Dr. Darryl Jones, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing.
About the QS-B220 Desktop Explosives and Drugs Trace Detector
The QS-B220 uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives as well as illicit drugs. With significantly lower maintenance requirements than competing systems, the QS-B220 can be deployed for a much lower total cost of ownership than other approved products. Featuring a radioactive material-free design, push-button maintenance and diagnostics, and a patented inCal™ internal automatic calibration system, the QS-B220 brings new levels of performance and convenience to desktop trace detection users with unsurpassed ease of use.
