U.S. Government agencies buy Implant Sciences’ QS-B220 explosives trace detector
Implant Sciences Corp., a supplier of systems and sensors for homeland security and defense markets, announced On September 23 that, in recent weeks, U.S. Government agencies purchased multiple QS-B220 desktop explosives trace detectors.
These purchases were made possible due to Implant Sciences' QS-B220 successfully completing Independent Testing & Evaluation (IT&E) with the Transportation Security Laboratory (TSL).
"The QS-B220's strong performance in TSL testing has opened the door to new opportunities within the U.S. Government, and in an environment of growing budgetary pressure, the cost advantages of the product really stand out,” said Darryl Jones, Implant Sciences' vice president of sales and marketing. “Implant Sciences' products offer superior performance couple with a compelling value proposition for both government and commercial clients."
The Quantum Sniffer QS-B220 uses Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) to rapidly detect and identify trace amounts of a wide variety of military, commercial, and homemade explosives. With significantly lower maintenance requirements than competing systems, the QS-B220 can be deployed for a much lower total cost of ownership than other approved products, says an Implant Sciences news release.
