Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection (ETD) and drugs trace detection solutions for homeland security applications, today reported that the Company has received an order for 75 QS-B220 explosives trace detection systems in the Netherlands. The systems are expected to be delivered in the Company's fourth fiscal quarter and will be used for screening passengers and baggage in an airport environment.
"The customer tested multiple ETD systems before making their selection. After weeks of testing and thousands of samples, the customer informed us that the QS-B220 had the lowest false alarm rate out of all of the tested systems. When screening millions of passengers per year, false alarms carry a tremendous monetary cost and are disruptive to security operations and passenger experience," stated Dr. Darryl Jones, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing. "The selection of Implant Sciences by this customer, reinforced by the recent U.S. aviation procurement, demonstrates that the QS-B220 is well suited to deliver superior results for high-throughput airports, where false alarm rates matter the most."
"This is a very prestigious win for our QS-B220. Implant Sciences is honored to enhance aviation security and integrate our product into an industry-leading passenger checkpoint experience," stated Richard Nelson, General Manager, EMEA for Implant Sciences.
