Implant Sciences Files New Patent Application on Method for Reducing False Alarms in Explosives Trace Detection

Method to Reduce False Alarms; Fortifies Company's Portfolio of 12 Patents

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2011) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC) (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, today announced it has filed a new patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office. The patent application, "Chemical Analysis Using Hyphenated Low and High Field Ion Mobility," is one of several pending for Implant Sciences. The Company's trace detection intellectual property portfolio also includes 12 issued patents with two more under license.

Implant Sciences presented the scientific discovery covered by the new patent application at the 3rd Annual Trace Explosives Detection Workshop in Portland, Oregon. The presentation titled "Accurate Explosives Detection and Identification Using Orthogonal Techniques" demonstrated an advanced technique for improving accuracy in identifying trace levels of explosives.

"As the number and type of threats continues to grow, it is critical that new solutions be developed to quickly and accurately identify explosives with low false alarm rates," stated Todd Silvestri, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Technology. "The integration of our current ion mobility spectrometer with an advanced differential mobility spectrometer will significantly improve the ability of the system to discriminate between dangerous and benign substances beyond the current capabilities of systems in use today."

Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO added, "This invention continues the Implant Sciences tradition of innovation exemplified by our non-radioactive ion generation, automatic self-calibration, and non-contact sampling technologies. The ability of our technology team to solve the problems faced daily by security professionals is why our products enjoy growing acceptance around the world."
