Implant Sciences' Quantum Sniffer™ Explosives Trace Detector to Be Used in New Mobile Airfreight Screening Business in Germany

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 21, 2011) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC) (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, today announced the first sale of its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 explosives trace detector into Germany by the Company's Hamburg-based distributor, D-TeC System Consulting GmbH.

The QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detector will be used in a completely new security application. The purchasing customer in Germany, First Class Zollservice, intends to provide explosives trace detection services on a fee-per-piece basis to air freight forwarders. The Quantum Sniffer will be installed into a vehicle which will drive to freight forwarding facilities to provide mobile air freight screening services.

"We are proud to see the portability, flexibility, and reliability of our QS-H150 help create cost-effective new business models for security providers. By screening at the air freight forwarder, an additional layer of security and confidence is created before packages even reach the airport," stated Glenn D. Bolduc, President and CEO of Implant Sciences.

"D-TeC System Consulting has been both effective and innovative in the German market for us. The development of our distribution channels continues to build our revenue stream," concluded Bolduc.
