Implant Sciences Corporation, a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection (ETD) and drugs trace detection solutions for homeland security applications, today announced that it has sold 20 of its QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detectors into Belgium for aviation security. Shipment of these units is already underway and is expected to be completed, per customer request, over the next several months.
"Implant Sciences has put an immense amount of effort into its manufacturing processes and capabilities. We believe that our ability to date to deliver products when a customer needs it most has helped us to secure additional wins in Europe, where EU regulations are driving strict airport procurement and implementation deadlines," stated Dr. Darryl Jones, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. "We believe that success will breed success as we hope to continue to capitalize on the significant opportunities in the region with our best-in-class trace detectors."
"Implant Sciences' established credibility, due to our superior performance in both lab and airport operational testing, has given us significant momentum throughout the ECAC procurements. We believe we are propelled forward even more so due to word of mouth, as one EU country is often influenced by a respected neighbor's buying decision," added Richard Nelson, Implant Sciences' General Manager of EMEA. "These frank discussions between security professionals about false alarm rates and operational readiness of the ETD and their impact on the bottom line of the airport have, we believe, helped Implant Sciences further penetrate the EU aviation market."
