WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 20, 2013) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, announced today the nationwide airing of a story featuring the Company by Fox News. The report, which aired Sunday, March 17, 2013, notes that Implant Sciences' Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 was recently approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
Implant Sciences' President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc, commented that, "X-ray and metal detection detect anomalies. They don't tell you if it's an explosive. The steel shank in your shoe is metal, which would be detected by a metal detector but doesn't necessarily tell you if it's an explosive. The advantage to explosives trace (detection) is we're telling you exactly what it is that you've detected."
