Implant Sciences Receives $586,000 Order for Quantum Sniffer Units to Be Deployed at 2011 Summer Universiade

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC) (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, today announced it has received a new order valued at over $586,000 to supply Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 systems for security screening at the 2011 Summer Universiade in Shenzhen, China.

The Universiade, also known as the World University Games, is an international multi-sport event, organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation. This year's event will take place in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, from August 12th to August 22nd.

Out of necessity, high profile sporting events such as the 2011 Summer Universiade are incorporating explosives trace detection into their security procedures. Our ability to continue to win orders for such high profile events is a testament to the effectiveness and reliability of our products," stated Implant Sciences' CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc.
