EU has approved Kromek's colour x-ray liquid detection system for use in all European airports to screen harmful liquids.

The European Civil Aviation Conference has verified the liquid bottle scanner as a Category B device and has certified it as having Type 1 and Type 2 100% capability.

The scanner can detect dangerous liquids in closed containers using a colour X-ray detection system to create a colour fingerprint, which can be verified against a secure customer-specified database.

Under new EU regulations, by April 2011 airports must have appropriate devices to scan liquids bought in transit and by April 2013 the ban on liquids on flights across Europe will be lifted.
