Tour of Growing Homeland Security Equipment Manufacturer to Focus on Creating US Jobs and Homeland Security

WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2011) - Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC) (PINKSHEETS: IMSC), a high technology supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security markets, today announced that on August 17th, U.S. Congressman John F. Tierney will visit the Company's headquarters and manufacturing facilities. Congressman Tierney represents the 6th District of Massachusetts, and is the Ranking Democrat of the House Oversight and Government Reform's Subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations.

Topics of discussion during the tour will include Congressman Tierney's involvement in increased homeland security, American job growth, export creation, and how the U.S. government can help small businesses in Massachusetts support these goals.

"Small businesses, like Implant Sciences, help maintain a solid foundation for our local economy," Congressman John Tierney said. "Implant Sciences is manufacturing homeland security equipment right here at home and creating jobs for members of our community. I look forward to discussing how Congress' policies have and can support innovation leading to the creation of more jobs by small businesses," Congressman Tierney said.

Implant Sciences has sold more that 1,300 of its Quantum Sniffer™ QS-H150 hand-held explosives trace detector in 27 countries around the world. The Company recently introduced a bench-top explosives and narcotics trace detection device, the QS-B220, which is designed for use in airport checkpoint, air cargo screening, and borders and customs applications.

This visit is a demonstration of his commitment to securing our nation from terrorist threats and to our economic growth by supporting small businesses. As Implant Sciences grows, we can create a new Massachusetts job for every 45 additional explosives trace detection systems we add to our annual sales volume."
