Implant Sciences to Feature QS-B220 Explosives and Drugs Trace Detector at International Drug Enforcement Conference in Russia

System Able to Detect a Wide Range of Drugs, Including 'Spice'

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2013) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced that it will exhibit its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-B220 desktop explosives and drugs trace detector at the International Drug Enforcement Conference (IDEC) 2013 in Moscow, Russia on June 5th through 7th. Implant Sciences will exhibit at booth #11 in conjunction with its Russian distributor, Borlas Security Systems.

IDEC is co-hosted by the Federal Drug Control Service of the Russian Federation and the United States Drug Enforcement Agency. This 30th annual conference is expected to draw representatives from more than 130 countries, 10 of the largest international organizations including Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), as well as heads of state ministries and agencies.

The international drug enforcement community, in Russia and the CIS countries in particular, has identified 'spice' drugs as a serious threat to society. Spice drugs are common herbs and spices that have been sprayed with cannabinoids, or synthetic compounds that mimic the effects of marijuana or hashish. Spice drugs are difficult to detect, making enforcement a challenge. The QS-B220's ability to detect trace levels of any given chemical uniquely positions it as the key tool to detect spice drugs. This capability will be highlighted at IDEC.

"The drug detection market is an opportunity we intend to pursue with greater focus. This international conference is an important venue for us to highlight our systems' suitability for various drug detection applications," stated Implant Sciences' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Dr. Darryl Jones.

"We look forward to showcasing the drug and explosives detection technology of Implant Sciences' Quantum Sniffers to the high-profile audience at IDEC. It is our belief that Quantum Sniffers have impressive market prospects because of their strong performance capabilities. We are proud to include these devices as a part of our security offering to our customers in Russia and CIS," said Dr. Andrey Prozorov, Director of Security Systems Department at Borlas Consulting Group.

Borlas Security Systems, a subsidiary of Borlas Consulting Group, specializes in building industry oriented complex security systems based on loss prevention and complete integrated solutions. Founded in 1991, Borlas is a leading consulting group in Russia and CIS states, offering its expertise in the creation of effective management methods and tools to its clients and currently ranks third among the top Hundred Russian Consulting Groups.
