Implant Sciences has delivered seven Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 portable explosives trace detectors to an unnamed airport in China.
QS-H150 is a handheld explosives trace detector that uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) to quickly detect and identify traces of a various military, commercial and homemade explosives.
The detector features a self-calibrating and self-clearing low-maintenance design and offers enhanced operational availability without using any radioactive material.
Implant Sciences president and CEO, Glenn Bolduc, said: "Aviation security continues to be an important market for us in China."
Bolduc continued: "The QS-H150’s quality, functionality, performance, and low cost-of-use consistently win contracts even when going up against companies that are larger than us with far greater resources. We also see significant opportunity in the aviation security market with our newest product offering, the QS-B220."
In May 2011, Implant Sciences launched their benchtop explosives and narcotics trace detector Quantum Sniffer QS-B220, which also uses IMS to rapidly detect and identify traces of military, commercial and homemade explosives, plus narcotic substances.
Implant Sciences has delivered similar systems to private companies and government agencies to screen baggage, cargo, vehicles and people for traces of explosives.
Implant has also signed a research and development agreement with the US Transportation Security Laboratory, which has been working with the QS-B220 product to assist the company to attain TSA qualification and certification.
