WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Feb 5, 2013) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced it had received an order for its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 desktop explosives and drugs trace detector from the national postal service of an Asian nation. The QS-B220 will be used to inspect mail for explosives and drugs. This sale was made through Implant Sciences' distributor Global Pro Security, an internationally recognized wholesale distributor of security and surveillance equipment.
"Postal services around the world are faced with the challenge of guarding against illicit drug trafficking and explosives hidden in shipments. With the deployment of the QS-B220 for this function, we are pleased to announce that we have successfully penetrated yet another market segment with our versatile product," stated Implant Sciences' President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc.
"Our QS-B220 and QS-H150 have performed extremely well in some key, high-volume airports in screening parcels of all sizes. This postal service customer became aware of our Quantum Sniffers' reputation for high performance, fast clear-down time between screens, and low maintenance costs.
