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 8 of its QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detectors to two major international airports in Cyprus, Paphos and Larnaca, which will be subject to the upcoming EU ETD regulations.
"The adoption of our QS-B220 by large and small EU countries alike speaks volumes. We believe that these smaller countries invest in technology that has the best reputation, or is seen as a 'sure thing'. We are very proud and gratified to be recognized by Cyprus and other countries, big and small, as the leader in trace detection," stated Dr. Bill McGann, Implant Sciences' CEO.
"Indeed, this series of sales throughout Europe is a true example of a positive cycle for Implant Sciences. We believe that when a well-known airport selects our technology, it can lead to more positive customer reference sites which, in turn, can lead to additional sales for our company," added Dr. Darryl Jones, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. "Implant Sciences is proud to supply systems all across the EU to support the first EU ETD deadline in September."
