Robust market for ETDs in Europe's aviation security market where QS-B220 is the only ECAC-approved ETD with a non-radioactive source for air cargo screening
WILMINGTON, Mass. – Implant Sciences Corporation (OTCQB: IMSC), a leading manufacturer of explosives trace detection (ETD) and drugs trace detection solutions for homeland security applications, announced today the Company will exhibit its QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detector at booth #3090 on March 10 - 12, 2015 at the Passenger Terminal Expo 2015 in Paris, France.
The QS-B220 was the first ETD to successfully pass the European Civil Aviation Conference's (ECAC) Common Evaluation Process of Security Equipment for airport checkpoint screening of passengers in October 2014. It is also the first and only ETD with a non-radioactive source to have received approval for air cargo screening in the 44 member nations of ECAC.
"Demand for high-performance ETDs in Europe's aviation and air cargo security sector is higher than we have seen in the recent past. This demand is driven by new regulations for security and higher standards for ETD performance. As the only ECAC-approved ETD with a non-radioactive source for cargo screening, we believe the QS-B220 is extremely well positioned to be a system of choice for European airlines and cargo facilities that prefer security equipment that does not utilize radiation," stated Dr. Darryl Jones, Implant Sciences' Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing.
