WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2012) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, today announced a follow-on order from a nuclear power plant in Japan, which has ordered an additional Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 handheld explosives trace detector. To date, Implant Sciences has sold over $1 million worth of Quantum Sniffers to Japan, a large portion of which have been deployed at nuclear power plants.
Japanese nuclear power plants have been customers of Implant Sciences since 2008 and have repeatedly purchased QS-H150 units.
"This customer has used our explosives trace detectors for the past four years," said Implant Sciences President and CEO, Glenn D. Bolduc. "The Japanese market places a high value on our non-radioactive source. This makes the QS-H150 unique and is a key feature in addition to the accuracy, reliability, low cost of ownership, and ease-of-use that make our Quantum Sniffers a favored choice for security experts around the world."
